|Value Added Partnership|
Mitchel & Scott Vendor Managed Inventory programs provide great value because they enable our customers to maintain control over supply and have a defined level of safety stock on hand at Mitchel & Scott to satisfy short term spikes in sales demand. Our VMI programs are structured to have direct interactions with Mitchel & Scott's Master Planning team to coordinate for the pull-in or push-out of product delivery based on the forecasted usage requirements. Supply agreements are typically utilized to help define the terms of the VMI and outline forecast requirements that are required for capacity planning. Many of our customers have established a partnership with us to package, inventory, and ship their products on demand so they can devote yourown space to what they do best.
Shipping and delivery programs are also optimized using our build to print services. Having one shipment from one facility reduces freight charges, as well as leads to fewer rush orders needed. We can assemble to order, or on a blanket order basis for faster turnaround. You receive complete, inspected assemblies or sub assemblies only when you need them. This frees up your cash requirements for other priorities. Just-in-Time delivery also reduces the amount of inventory which you've already paid for from sitting on the shelves for weeks. Mitchel & Scott may also be able to reduce employee costs by issuing fewer PO's and having fewer phone calls to expedite shipments. With less routine assembly required, your employees can direct their energies to the heart of your business.
