Customer Managed Inventory (CMI)

Let us get you set up to run and oversee the process.  With our Customer Managed Inventory (CMI) solution you have control and flexibility on what gets ordered, when and how much. Most products ship from our Burlington, North Carolina facility.

What is the Customer Managed Inventory solution?

The customer takes on the responsibility of managing inventory and reordering stock.  As with many replenishment methods, the administrative tasks associated with creating an order often out weigh the value of the products.  The Customer Managed Inventory (CMI) solution removes the traditional order to paper process and allows the customer direct access to purchase through technology.

How does it work?

Customers are able to help reduce procurement costs by managing inventory and reorder points directly.  We help create min/max or reorder levels that fit your needs and give you the ability to manage the replenishment parameters for each item.  After initial set up, the relationship between supplier and customer is less frequent.  We give you full access to product selection, special item floor stock, shipping preference, and a dedicated customer service representative.  Opportunities for improvement are available on a frequent basis.

Benefits associated with our CMI solution are:

  • Customized inventory levels
  • Flexibility in ordering
