Vendor Managed Inventory Services You Can Count On
When you allow a VMI company, such as GTA Industrial Supply, to handle your supply chain management and logistics, you’ll have a massive weight taken off of your shoulders. Employing vendor managed inventory services you can count on means taking control of your business and increasing your output.
What Is Vendor Managed Inventory?
Vendor managed inventory is a collaborative effort between industrial suppliers and the clients they serve. VMI is a method of doing business that has proven to streamline production and business operations for the many companies that implement it.
Using vendor managed inventory can increase sales and your supply chain’s efficiency while reducing errors and encouraging faster inventory turns. In short, VMI allows you to replenish your stock in real time without thinking about it, and your customers don’t have to wait which means you get paid faster.
How VMI Can Save You Time and Money
Vendor managed inventory programs can save businesses when it comes to ownership costs and employee hiring and training. Overall, VMI decreases the need for humans running company-wide inventory management and inventory data collection. This means you can put your employees where you need them most, instead of asking them to take inventory and place vendor orders painstakingly.
In a VMI program such as GTA Industrial Supply, you’re allowing us to assist in everyday inventory operations, such as labeling, packaging, and storage. You can successfully keep less inventory on hand, free up warehouse space, and even reduce your carbon footprint by combining large orders. Our job is to make your life easier when it comes to having the industrial supplies you need.
Here is a vendor managed inventory example:
The Hallmark company handles the Hallmark cards’ replenishment in the card aisle at Walmart and manages individual store inventory. Essentially, it’s up to Hallmark to know when Walmart is low on a particular card or cards.
We run our VMI program in the same fashion. We just serve a different industry. Our specialty is manufacturing, production, and other industrial facilities. It’s up to us to know when you need a restock, but our job is to keep you properly supplied at all times. We help you avoid downtime.
For example, if you use bandsaws in what you do, we get to know your business and your patterns of use for that specific blade. After you share information with us, we take that data and ensure you always have these blades on hand. When it’s time to replace them, there’s no time spent ordering, maintaining an inventory, or anything else. Simply go get the blade you need and keep working.
