CINCINNATI, OH — Datalliance has announced that Bridgeport Fittings, manufacturer of electrical fittings, has selected Datalliance VMI as the platform for the company’s Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) program.
“VMI further extends our focus on service to our distributor partners,” said Paul Suzio, Bridgeport Fittings President and COO. “Our VMI program is an important step in our drive for continued productivity improvement by making Bridgeport Fittings an easy product line for our distributors to sell and manage. VMI also enables us to collaborate more on critical business metrics like inventory performance and service levels.”
“The Datalliance VMI platform is used extensively in the electrical segment,” added Suzio. “Many of our distributor partners already use Datalliance and the service they provide is a good fit for Bridgeport Fittings. Their experience should help us get started quickly.”
Tom Hoar, Datalliance Director of Sales for Industrial Markets, said “We are very excited to have Bridgeport Fittings as the newest member of our electrical industry VMI community. The broad adoption of VMI in the electrical industry is based on the mutual sales increases and reduced costs both distributors and manufacturers are achieving. We look forward to supporting Bridgeport Fittings on this important initiative.”Tagged with lighting, tED
