VMI Price Drop
Friday, February 10, 2012
PathGuide® Technologies (pathguide.com), a leading provider of advanced warehouse management systems (WMS) for industrial and retail distributors, announced a significant price reduction for its vendor managed inventory (VMI) solution.
With the steep price reduction for mobile devices, more distributors can extend VMI services to their customers with significant upfront savings.
E.B. Horsman & Son, an electrical distributor based in British Columbia, has been leveraging Latitude VMI to allow real-time confirmation or correction on specific orders. Latitude VMI allows EB Horsman’s clients to replenish their warehouse stock with a quick barcode scan. These scans create new just-in-time orders that are sent to EB Horsman via wireless connection, where they are quickly confirmed and processed. The technology has allowed EB Horsman to capture new accounts with clients who demand rapid, error-free order replenishment capabilities.
The recent availability of the Intermec model CS40, a smartphone-like handheld computer with a robust design perfect for warehouse environments, cuts the price of VMI hardware by nearly 40%.
“New hardware offerings make Latitude’s VMI solution easily accessible to distributors who want to make reordering more convenient for their customers,” says PathGuide CEO Eric Allais. “We’re excited to see how VMI will give distributors the ability to attract new business that they might not be able to land otherwise.”
VMI is part of PathGuide's Latitude Warehouse Management System, a modular software suite that automates warehousing and distribution to provide real-time online information about all inventories. It automates all operations from receiving and order picking, to manifesting and truck route/stop management. Latitude integrates seamlessly with major Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) business systems from such companies as Epicor, Oracle, SAP, Microsoft and Infor.About PathGuide Technologies
