Procurement

Forecasting and planning
Together with the manufacturer and retailer, our sales staff and procurement team help manage the demand forecasts by item, adjusted monthly according to POS data. This allows the manufacturer to better plan production, reduce lead times and improve turnover.
Inventory control
Our seasoned procurement team works with the manufacturer to coordinate an inventory strategy based on production schedules and lead times. They coordinate the purchasing and logistics on all inbound shipments insuring proper inventory levels and on-time deliveries. They act as a liaison, communicating between the sales representatives, retailer and manufacturer.
