Improve Your Supply Chain Operations with An Effective Inventory Management Solution

While working hard to ensure everyone’s safety and well-being, many organizations in the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 have been experiencing additional stress on their supply chain operations. Social distancing measures have resulted in many third-party suppliers no longer conducting site visits to track inventory. This is a major challenge because if your inventory levels are no longer properly tracked, your organization ends up dealing with inaccurate inventory counts, uncertainty in shipment and fulfillment capabilities, and ultimately, lost revenue.

To help overcome this challenge, we’re offering access to our inventory management experts through a new vendor managed inventory program, Thomas Inventory Management Solutions (TIMS).

Benefits of Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)


Transitioning your current inventory management services from a third-party service to a vendor managed model is one of the best ways your organization can improve supply chain operations. You reduce the number of external people visiting your sites to help prevent the spread of the virus while not putting a halt in your workflow or inventory management operations. With vendor managed inventory, vendors can monitor their customer’s inventory and sales levels to avoid under or over stocking. VMI gives vendors more control over the inventory process and alleviates the customer of some associated responsibilities and costs. Both parties benefit when vendors can focus more on improving inefficiencies, creating lean manufacturing, and achieving seamless deliveries.
