Vendor Managed Inventory

vendor managed inventoryAnvil uses a traditional VMI solution to provide our customers with the most accurate ordering information possible. The basis of the program is regular communication of key inventory data from the wholesaler to Anvil’s VMI process. The program is flexible to provide for the best possible VMI relationship.
