  • Faster inventory turns
  • Minimise safety stock
  • Increased sales
  • Protect against supply chain bullwhip effect
  • Reduce planning and ordering cost
  • Focus on better customer service
  • Diminish stock-outs
  • Increase product mix

How it works

  1. Zoglix works with the customer (retailer/manufacturer) on following deliverables:
    • Inventory turnover
    • Min/max shelf presence for different products/product lines
    • Fill rates and in-stock percentages
    • Replenishment Frequencies
    • Transaction costs
  2. Our VMI system receives data (called a Product Activity Report) from a distribution partner. This report contains data on sales, product transfers and inventory positions (on hand, on order, in transit).
  3. VMI platform reviews the data and sends a recommended inventory replenishment order based on key factors and agreed objectives.
  4. Customer reviews and approves the recommendations.
  5. VMI platform then sends a purchase order (PO) to the supplier and a PO acknowledgement to the distribution partner in an electronic data interchange (EDI) format.
  6. Zoglix ships goods to the customer warehouse
