The Business Edge includes a complete Vendor Managed Inventory system. The basis for this system is the creation of bin labels for each VMI customer. The data for the Bin Labels is either entered or uploaded to The Business Edge. Bin labels that are printed by the system include the customer bin location and either the customer or vendor part number. They can also include the minimum and maximum for the bin. Beyond that, with the full Able Label integration, the labels can include a drawing of the part as well. These labels are affixed to the customer bins.
Customer Bin information is seamlessly integrated into
The Business Edge. Labels are printed out directly from
The Business Edge (including Able Label) and Handheld devices
are loaded with up to the minute information from The Business Edge.
Using either an Android or iOS device (iPhone, IPad and IPod), the user can use a Bluetooth scanner or internal camera to scan orders into the app. The user can view detailed information about the scanned item instantly. The user can upload orders at any time from wherever they have cell phone coverage or Wi-Fi access.
Upon order submission, eMail confirmations are sent to the interested parties. The system also supports Consignment Inventory. Throughout the entire process, no one has to key in or write down a part number.
The order is perfect because it is based on information that was provided by the system in the first place. The result is exceptional customer service and a huge reduction in work.
The ultimate goal of the VMI system is to improve customer service, enhance customer loyalty and improve margins. The whole system is designed to be used by non-technical people so it is easy to implement.
