Advanced VMI Solution Offers Complete Visibility


BOTHELL, Wash. – PathGuide Technologies, a leading provider of warehouse management system (WMS) and shipping solutions for industrial and retail distributors, is announcing the upcoming Q3 release of Advanced Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) to enable all distributors to improve customer service, retain existing business and grow market share.

PathGuide recently showcased Advanced Vendor Managed Inventory capabilities at the company’s Latitude User Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

PathGuide’s standalone Advanced VMI is the first product to run independently outside of the warehouse for a distributor’s customers. This product provides full inventory control and order management, including visibility to shelf life requirements and traceability down to inventory lot numbers, expiration dates and serial numbers.

“Advanced Vendor Managed Inventory is a no-brainer for distributors of all sizes, especially those looking for a value-add opportunity and investing in their sales force,” said Eric Allais, president and CEO of PathGuide. “This groundbreaking solution enables distributors to offer their customers a simple, fast, error-free, and convenient item restocking process.”

Advanced VMI helps distributors and their customers efficiently maintain inventory levels and easily create and manage replenishment orders. When a customer runs low on stock of an item, Advanced VMI can generate an automatic replenishment order, bringing inventory levels up to predetermined maximums. The order is then sent to the distributor for fast, accurate fulfillment.

Here are some of the features one can expect from PathGuide’s highly customizable product:

  • Bin-level management for complete inventory control
  • Lot and shelf life management
  • Serial number control management
  • Consigned and non-consigned inventory management
  • Ad-hoc replenishment
  • Industrial vending machine support
  • SaaS-based multi-tenant cloud architecture
  • User-defined multilingual support
This press release first appeared in EBN Newswire on May 22, 2019.
