Order rework/ order touches refer to the processes a company must redo when fulfilling an order. VMI helps companies streamline processes and restock retailer shelves more easily. The process of replenishment begins with the retailers VMI solution sending a daily Product Activity Report with information regarding current products, stock and sales data. This Product Activity Report enables the VMI solution to send pre-built Purchase Orders highlighting the required stock via EDI to the distributors. By sending automated messages highlighting the required data, it enables those supplying into retailers to quickly and accurately process, build and ship the items required.
By intelligently enabling distributors to plan ahead, VMI enables you to reduce order rework/ order touches and the amount of duplicate packaging processes, whilst simultaneously streamlining supply chain processes.
