Making Vendor Compliance Look Easy
Since the first vendor compliance manual appeared on the stage in the 1980s, there has been an epic struggle between retailers that want to see products arrive in a certain way and wholesalers, who find creating pallets specific to each retail outlet to be a giant pain. Unfortunately, the alternatives are to either not sell to that vendor or to be charged for the time and effort it takes that retailer to repack the orders they get from you.
Those same persnickety retailers also require very specific communications about orders that you’re sending to them. So, it’s not just a matter of packing them right, placing the barcodes in the right spots, wrapping them just so, your outgoing orders also have to be followed, with an EDI expert providing updates to the retailer as they happen.
Any paperwork that would have been required in the past can also be sent via EDI, ensuring that your shipments arrive at the retailer faster and with more complete documentation.
