Vendor Managed Inventory

What if there was an INNOVATIVE system to help keep you on budget, give you back your time, and do your inventory and ordering for you? IMAGINE never having to visit your janitorial supply closet to count and re-order product again!

WHAT IS VMI-VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY?

VENDER MANAGED INVENTORY is a concept that has been around for a long time that puts the task of tracking important, consumable items on the supplier, not on you, the customer. VMI is typically used by operations to balance time, budget, space and to ensure that the facility never runs out of product again. In the early 1990’s the company founder Ed Sprague introduced this concept to the janitorial supply market in the Maryland/Delaware area. Our products are important to the health, safety, and maintenance of your facilities. VMI will ensure that the burden of being out of stock on these items does not fall on you!
