Heavy-duty technology provider Karmak Inc. has released its Vendor Managed Inventory software interface for Hino dealers. The new interface is designed to allow dealers using Karmak business systems to send sales and inventory data to Hino for analysis and, in return, receive a replenishment order based on mutually established criteria.
Karmak says the Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) program offers benefits such as more accurate prediction of new product stocking levels, improved fill rates and reduced administrative time. It also can help dealers increase sales and improve customer service by reducing out-of-stock situations, while lowering inventory costs and improving inventory turns, according to the Carlinville, Ill.-based company.
Karmak says its Hino VMI interface, which incorporates advanced e-commerce technology, is the latest in a series of applications developed to meet manufacturers’ unique requirements. Working closely with Hino Trucks and other major heavy-duty manufacturers, Karmak says it provides OEM-specific solutions that ensure seamless communication between dealer/distributor and supplier systems.
