Benefits of VMI in the indirect sales channel

More revenue with less stock

Orders was developed in close cooperation with leading brand manufacturers such as Apple. The focus is on a uniform replenishment (VMI) process for all retail customers and all logistics structures. The AI-based process control enables high flexibility. Whether central, decentralized or collaborative requirements. With Orders as a Vendor Managed Inventory solution, you are perfectly prepared for every situation.

Advantages for brands with VMI

Immediate increase in sales

Depending on the actual situation, by more than 30% by minimizing out-of-stocks and expanding the range with the same shelf space.

Significant cost reduction

The intelligent and automatic process reduces costs at all levels: logistics, MDF, order management and inventory costs.

Stronger customer loyalty

Due to the extensive automatic process integration, the dealer is more closely tied to you as the manufacturer.

Simplified planning

The structured, automatic ordering process significantly simplifies and improves sales planning and the production planning that depends on it.

Transparent integration

Orders takes all existing (manual, advertising, etc.) deliveries into account and can therefore be used transparently in addition to all existing processes

No process resources required
