EB Horsman & Son Improve Reordering Efficiency with Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)
Latitude Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) is a solution that helps distributors and their customers efficiently manage customer orders.
VMI is part of PathGuide’s Latitude Warehouse Management System (WMS), a modular software suite that manages warehousing and distribution to provide real-time online information about all inventories.
How does VMI Work?
When your customer runs low on your product, they can quickly build a replenishment order using a simple barcode scan. Latitude VMI creates customer orders that are sent back to your Latitude WMS, and then up to your ERP, for fast, accurate fulfillment.
Traditional Vendor Management Inventory
Human errors on customer replenishment orders are inevitable, but costly. Eliminate salesperson mistakes by using easy-to-scan, specially generated barcode labels on your products at your customer locations. Your sales person need only scan the barcodes of the products that need to be reordered, and confirm the order, all on the mobile device. The order is transmitted back to your Latitude WMS, and then on up to your ERP for processing. You are able to set up minimum, maximum, and order point quantities to ensure the proper stocking levels are reordered.
Perhaps your sales force is stretched thin, or maybe you prefer a more hands-off approach to managing customer orders. Fortunately, Latitude VMI can allow your customers to place their own replenishment orders, using mobile devices equipped with scanning capabilities.
