Vendor Managed Inventory & Customer Managed Inventory

 

VMI / CMI Inventory Management Software eTurns TrackStock

Simple two step process to replenish 10x faster

eTurns TrackStock Replenish requires only a two-step process on a mobile device to order replenishment inventory:

  • Using an Android / iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch and the camera function, users scan barcodes of stockroom items that need replenishment
  • TrackStock Replenish captures all this information with one scan: item #, location, package quantity, and customer
  • Tapping "submit" sends the orders through the eTurns cloud directly to the Distributor's ERP system through integration
  • TrackStock Replenish saves 90% of the time it takes to order through ANY ecommerce site or using any manual clipboard/fax method

 

 

Use VMI or CMI with eTurns and go paperless

eTurns TrackStock Replenish can be used to do Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) or Customer Managed Inventory (CMI). Distributor drivers/ reps doing VMI inventory management or end-customers scanning for themselves (CMI) no longer have to write part numbers down, or walk back to their computers to log in to a web site, or enter the part numbers they have written down into their cart or search for these items.

 

 

Prevent your customers from price shopping and increase loyalty

Distributors who offer eTurns TrackStock Replenish to their customers to do customer managed inventory are giving their customer a tool that helps them order only what they need and to do it 10x faster than it takes to replenish through an e-commerce site. Additionally, customers using TrackStock Replenish in a CMI method are not signing on to the Internet and potentially price shopping, they just scan and send the replenishment order directly to the distributor. Since eTurns also reduces procurement costs by up to 90%, it increases customer loyalty to the distributor by saving customers time and money.
