Why to Choose Vendor Managed Inventory with All State Fastener Corporation


Utilizing vendor managed inventory in the past may have been an experiment, but it has now gained acceptance as the preferred way of doing business in many industries. Vendor managed inventory allows for a strong relationship between manufacturer and supplier to make a business model that is beneficial to both parties as well as the customer. Overall, it’s a positive step.

At All State Fastener Corporation, we use our web-based Kanban software to control the metrics. With it, you can understand where your parts are and when they’re being replenished, discover how many are in process and when they will return. The system includes program management, directed buy programs, automated bar coding and scans, transition analysis, database access via ASF Supplier Portals, and Class C commodities. By using a web-based model, you have immediate access to real time inventory throughout the supply chain.

There are many benefits to incorporate vendor managed inventory into your current system including:

  • Reduced data entry errors.
  • Up-to-date inventory with current needs.
  • Improved fill rates.
  • Decreased cost for planning and ordering.
  • Overall service level improvement.
  • Invoicing of parts at point of usage.

Customers are able to get the products they need and want much faster because the inventory is correct and anticipated. This, of course, is of great benefit to them and, in turn, benefiting your customer service and business.
