“VMI has proven to do what we had hoped it would do. It has provided the impetus and tools to consolidate and synchronize our data, optimize the levels and range of inventory our distributors carry and provide previously unavailable visibility into sales and inventory at the distributor level. Most importantly, that is all adding up to increased sales for both us and our distributor partners.”
