Focus makes Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) possible by giving customers and our internal inventory team use of the same system, ACCESS. Both parties can update and view the system in real-time. As a result, data translation is seamless. Also, these permissions can be customized for each party, so they only have access to the necessary features they are approved to see. This maintains organizational security while still allowing for easy and open communication.
From our (Focus’s) perspective, ACCESS allows us to track inventory levels using min, max, and reorder points. These indicators will notify us when a customer’s inventory falls below preset levels. Focus can track inventory through a variety of reports and live data. As a result, we can improve delivery times and accurately forecast customer demand. In addition, customers can create orders, run inventory reports, and more. ACCESS helps to simplify and ensure accuracy in the order process.
