Software for Vendor Managed Inventory

Vendor Managed Inventory software means a role reversal in warehouse management: the wholesaler transfers responsibility for his stock to his supplier and guarantees optimal supply. This has advantages for both sides. REMIRA provides you with an intelligent VMI system.

Vendor Managed Inventory in practice

With VMI, you as a supplier take responsibility for your customers' stocks! This allows you to offer additional services and also gain insight into your customers' needs. You avoid too high inventory levels, out-of-stock situations and problems in communication!

The division of labor along the supply chain is supposed to optimize individual work processes, but often access to information, among other things, is problematic for suppliers. Distributors, on the other hand, struggle with overstocks or out-of-stock situations. With VMI, the supplier takes responsibility for replenishment planning and the stock in the retailer's warehouse. In doing so, supply planning is based on actual demand. Instead of reacting to orders from the retailer, the supplier initiates, coordinates and manages deliveries independently.

REMIRA software provides an optimal overview of all data relevant to inventory management and forecasts changes in sales. The result: trading partners benefit from an improvement in their flow of goods and avoid out-of-stock situations. As a result, deliveries are always made at the ideal time. This is implemented by linking the VMI software to the retailer's ERP system.

Vendor Managed Inventory in the company

Vendor Managed Inventory is a concept for building an efficient supply chain. To do this, you need a scheduling software that can

  • map the numerous (virtual) warehouses of your customers,
  • plan for your customers in a highly automated way,
  • automatically forward the delivery items to the order system,
  • log and track the rolled goods.

Thanks to the comprehensive database and the use of inventory management software, you can even manage the stocks better than your customers. Excessive stock levels, out-of-stock situations or problems in communication are eliminated with VMI, as you have access to all relevant customer data, allowing you to flexibly plan your production and stocks. Your customer benefits from high availability and low stock levels.
