Learn more about how Gimme VMS manages your warehouse.
VMS predicts if you are likely to run out of a product before the next delivery with Warehouse Rationing. Rationing intelligently redistributes inventory to reduce the probability of stockouts in your markets and machines. Rationing is recalculated daily and automatically adjusts based on actual sales instead of forecasted sales. Users may also temporarily replace a product. This is automatically reverted once the warehouse either has enough of the product or the rationing is deactivated for a product.Watch Warehouse Rationing Demo
VMS takes the guesswork from creating purchase orders and suggests how much product you should order from your vendors. Suggested Order Quantity uses AutoPar, your real-time on-hand inventory, and the estimated delivery date of your next order to calculate the number of each product to order. This data-driven suggestion doesn't require running reports first, saving your purchasing manager a ton of time. Order the right amount of product from your vendors to reduce the chance of product shortage and stockouts.
Define the number of days worth of inventory you want on hand. AutoPar automatically determines the quantity of each product, which changes with your average pick volume over the last 30 days. When markets and machine sales increase, like water in the summertime, AutoPar automatically increases, too — you don't need to remember to make manual adjustments. Our recommended best practice is to set your AutoPar days based on how often that product is delivered plus a margin based on the Order Fill Rate. You can always use your own logic for determining the right operating stock level for each product.Watch AutoPar Demo
Active Warehouse Inventory in VMS is indicated clearly to all users. More than one user can inventory a warehouse simultaneously so that you can divide the work across people into different sections. Bringbacks are tracked separately to avoid duplicates. New screens allow your admins to review counts, variance and not counted items before submitting a final inventory count. This improved process helps avoid human error during a warehouse inventory, so you accurately know how much you have and don't run out of product.
The new Product Detail Page is a deep dive into any individual product and its status in your warehouse(s). Know how many products you have on hand across multiple warehouses, when you last received this product, when you next receive this product, and your order fill rate %. This page can provide you early signals to take action on any individual product and allow you to add new SKUs, assign tags, or increase the price in your markets.
