EFC has recognized Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) as a key process to the industry because it is a technology that allows companies to work collaboratively to optimize replenishment. By starting a VMI program, you not only create stronger business relationships, you see mutual benefits to the top and bottom line. In this session we will introduce you to the basics of VMI and how you can increase sales, reduce out-of-stocks, and increase inventory turns. Learn how continuous innovation is allowing more flexibility to deal with all your unique replenishment needs.

The fundamentals of warehouse management never change; demand planning, purchasing, receiving, picking, packing, shipping — but the efficiency and scalability of those processes depend on the technologies that enable them. The future is full of technological fancy, but smart warehouses begin with smarter warehouse management. Smarter warehouses are designed as networks of intersecting processes and workflows that leverage appropriate technologies and resources where they add the most value. With the ultimate goal of achieving the perfect order at the lowest possible cost, warehousing demands connectivity and cohesion. This session explores the evolving role of technology as it applies to fundamental warehouse operations.
