Fractional Purchasing Services

We issue purchase orders in either your system or ours for selected stock items that you source, negotiate pricing for, and then assign to us to sustain.  Let us optimize your demand planning, purchasing, and suppliers' performance as your designated supply chain administrator so you can focus on meeting strategic objectives.  Our transactional fee structure allows you to pay-as-you-go.

point-of-use ordering

Point-of-Use Reordering

We also provide Scan2Request (you do the purchase ordering) and Scan2Order (we do the purchase ordering for you) wireless IoT technology to enable point-of-use material replenishment.  These can be used for a variety of use cases including the triggering of purchasing, requisitions, restocking, VMI, or manufacturing activity as part of a lean pull-based operation. 

consigned inventory

Inventory Optimization

We perform demand planning and incorporate forecasts as appropriate to optimize inventory levels and execute purchasing to ensure that your desired service levels are met.  Our managed services can be configured to support the purchase or sale of products, materials, or supplies with any of your trading partners.

Reduce Cost

  • Reduce costs both in terms of inventory holding costs and recurring indirect overhead.  We are often able to reduce stock inventory by as much as 20 to 80% while maintaining service levels greater than 99%.  We can also provide our services at a lower marginal operating cost.

Get in Front of Supply Chain Challenges

  • We monitor vendor performance and update ordering parameters so that you can keep pace with an ever-changing supply chain landscape

Delight your Customers

  • Use our services and solutions to maximize your on-time performance, thus enhancing customer satisfaction and retention.  You can also apply our solutions as a value-added service to facilitate customer reordering and recurring sales.

Improve Stock Availability

  • You specify your desired service levels and we apply our statistically-based inventory optimization to meet your requirements

Supplement Your Existing Staff

  • As your option, we can purchase and manage stock items that you assign to us.  We work with your existing resources.

Continue Using Your Existing System - No New Software

  • We do not sell software.  Our managed services and solutions can be provided either standalone or using your existing ERP.  We are system-agnostic.
