1. Initial Consultation and Project Qualification

After your initial inquiry, our first port of call is to qualify it and ensure we can provide the service you require. We understand that deadlines can be tight and budgets can be tighter, so we won’t waste your time if it’s a request we’re unable to fulfill.

Once your request is qualified, the next step is to gather as much information about your project as possible. This is where we meet in person or via Zoom and dive deeper into your uniform and workwear needs. For example,  what problems are you trying to solve, understanding your team’s job roles, staff demographics as well as different functions within your business and safety requirements within their operation.

The key to this stage is gathering all the relevant information and getting to know your business and your needs inside out. From here we can ensure we have our best people working on your project, who know your industry and challenges to serve you best.

2. Samples and Ideas Workshop

The next stage is to share ideas and samples at in-person brand workshops where you can get a good feel for the product choices. Our wider team of clothing experts gets involved at this point in the service process. We take your ideas, needs, and wants and turn them into a product proposal, complete with garments Pantone Matched to your brand colours and a range of fabric types to help you select what works best for which function.  

In this stage, we also present more information about Streamline, how we work and what comes next. Ideally, we would do these workshops in person so that there’s the opportunity for you to see product samples in real life. This is the time to really explore all the options and ensure you’re happy we have met your brief.

So, at this point, you’ve chosen the garments you think will work best for your brand and your workforce. Next up is the trial stage. We will provide you with a range of samples so that you can try them out, show your team, and make sure they really do work for every area of your business.

Once you’re confident and happy with your product choices we can talk logistics, and delivery times, and we will give you a final quote for your order. Again, working closely with you to ensure we’re meeting your needs. When you’re happy and the project is approved, it is time to move forward to the next stage.
