What is VMI?

Vendor Managed Inventory requires data access

Vendor managed inventory. This is a means of optimising the supply chain, whereby the supplier becomes responsible for maintaining the customers inventory levels. This means the supplier needs access to the customers stock levels and the use of vendor managed inventory software allows this. This means the manufacturer generates the order, not the customer.

For example, the IN4MA is used to monitor the level of chemical within a storage tank on a customerís site. This information is then available to the supplier via the data acquisition software, normally by using the internet. An alarm is sent when the product level goes below a Ďre-orderí point, and sent directly to the relevant department by fax or email, who are then able to respond and send a tanker as required.

We can use IN4MA in conjunction with RFID tagging to monitor packaged goods. A small low cost label is placed on the product and antennaís a placed in suitable locations. When product is moved we know. The IN4MA can even be put on moving vehicles and containers so you can keep track of product whilst itís on the move. We have available a GPS version so you can find out exactly where your stock is and how it is.

VMI improves customer service, reducing the need for the customer to monitor the level and then place an order. It also reduces errors in ordering and ensures there are no part loads or returned tankers and therefore reducing logistic and transportation costs.
