Taking Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI) to the Next LevelMORE INFO
Traditional VMI vs Fasteners Direct Sure Stock
VMI or Vendor Managed Inventory is a model designed to streamline inventory management and order fulfillment. Basically, VMI gives your vendor full control over your supply levels as they stock and re-stock as they see fit. While outsourcing this service can allow you to focus on other areas of your business, you’re putting all of your trust in the supplier to optimize your stock.
In this ever-changing market, do you really want to give up that much control in managing your inventory? Fasteners Direct has taken VMI to the next level with our Sure Stock system. This program allows YOU to be in control of your inventory levels. And it’s super easy to implement!
See the example of what a Sure Stock set up could look like in your facility. All the items are packaged and shelved at your location in ready-to-use boxes and FD pails.
As you use product and see your supply running low, simply scan the card for that part and it will automatically place an order for us to replenish! Your parts will be readily available, and no payment is required until they are used.
We will not only come and set everything up for you, but we can also offer to lock in your price and inventory for up to 12 months! Our Sure Stock system is guaranteed to make SURE your fasteners are always STOCKed.
