Time and Money Versus Quality
Outsourcing is on the rise again – but what about QUALITY?
Now, more than ever, businesses are looking to streamline their costs and outsourcing remains a key strategy. Embroidery companies are either outsourcing some or all of their digitizing needs in order to save time, money or both. However, the quality is not always up to their high standards!
An embroidery business is judged on quality alone, not the speed of delivery or the costs. If you can master the trifecta then your business is onto a winner.
How do you maintain quality?
This is one of the main questions we hear when speaking with our customers on this subject and our response is always the same.
“Do not completely rely on your outsourcing partners. You have incredible experience and expertise so don’t forget to use it.”
You have an experienced machinist who knows your specific embroidery machines best. Use them to sample the digitized designs on the correct fabric and harness their experience.
Designs may need a few simple tweaks such as fixing the lettering, adding/removing underlay, correcting alignment issues or simply reducing the stitch count for more efficient production.
Take control of your quality assurance
and choose to do these tweaks in-house.
Without the need for a full Wilcom Digitizing solution, use EmbroideryStudio e4.5 Editing as a necessary second system.
The software is purpose-designed to allow your in-house team to make these amendments easily. This will not only save you additional time going back-and-forth with your outsourcer, but enables your team to make changes and immediately test them on your production embroidery machine.
Included is the same complete library of 226 professionally digitized embroidery fonts found in our premium level software.
Feel confident in the quality of your embroidered product!

We would also recommend adding Wilcom’s EmbroideryConnect WiFi Device to create a cost-effective wireless embroidery machine network solution.
The benefit aside from the need to constantly travel with designs between your PC and embroidery machine, is that you can ensure the correct updated embroidery design is loaded to the machine, avoiding re-running an old stitch design during testing or worse, during your final production.
