We have the unique ability to connect product expertise with supply chain insights – so you don't have to choose which is more important. We understand your profitability depends on getting it all right.

VMI Program Overview


An Information Partnership

During the initial setup of the VMI program, we use your demand plan or estimated annual usage (EAUs) to develop a supply chain of the right products, tailored to your usage – with no start-up costs to you. With our unmatched technical expertise and supply chain knowledge, your VMI program becomes a true information partnership that lets you focus on the important things that keep your business moving forward.


Going with the (Data) Flow

Maintaining appropriate levels in your product bins is a simple process with our VMI program. The real-time data collected through our easy-to-use app provides instantaneous feedback that informs replenishment decisions and speeds up the replenishment cycle. This same raw data can also be fed back into your ERP system, facilitating key inventory functions.


Uncovering Ongoing Opportunities

Things change. And we'll often notice usage fluctuations before you do. Our VMI program is dynamic, not static, so we'll confer with you periodically, helping identify opportunities and issues that may be hidden in the details. We stay on top of your supply chain operation to make sure you're realizing every possible benefit.
