Vendor Managed Inventory overview

  • Updated

Optimizely Configured Commerce Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) allows your designated VMI Users to use your mobile app to scan products to update quantities, create orders, add location notes, and more. This allows warehouse staff to compile important product information into one place, making it easier to order more products and monitor inventory.

VMI features for the mobile app include:

  • Count inventory – Use the phone or tablet's camera to scan product barcodes and QR codes to update quantities in the warehouse.
  • Create orders and view order information – Allow mobile app users to order products quickly in-house. They can also view order history or order details.
  • Edit location notes – Include notes about the location such as weather delays, shipping delays, and more.
  • Change locations – Switch to a different location in the app to count inventory and place orders at another warehouse.
