  • 2. Supply ChainOptimization viaIntegrated VendorManaged Inventory Optimizing the supply chain and creating lasting customer relationships is critical in every industry. The supply chain universally consists of a disparate set of systems that struggle to talk to one another. That lack of communication makes optimization very challenging. Applying cloud-based B2B integration technology to this problem allows for the implementation of fully automated Integrated Vendor Managed Inventory (IVMI) solutions. Appterra is a market leader in managed integration services and has a set of solutions designed to create tight, lasting and economically efficient trading partner relationships. 1
  • 3. The Goals of Integrated IVMI IVMI solutions are a critical component of driving supply chain efficiency and customer satisfaction:Visible • Visibility: Integrated VMI requires full supply chain visibility. Where are the products? What’s selling?Optimized What’s not? Without visibility how could we optimize?Efficient • Optimization: Integrated VMI provides optimized inventory allocation throughout the supply chain. By monitoring supply chain activity over time, VMI algorithms can provide predictive recommendations for future shipments. The goal is to prevent stock- out conditions without over allocating, over producing and over distributing. • Efficiency: Integrated VMI, when properly implemented, drives supply chain efficiency via optimized use of capital, improved GMROI and efficient allocation of human capital. 2
  • 4. The Connectionbetween B2BIntegration andIntegrated VMIIntegrated VMI requires electronic visibility into thetransaction flow across the distribution network. B2Bintegration solutions, such as Appterra’s managedintegration hub, provide transport mechanisms,document translation, archiving and business analyticsthat enable effective Integrated VMI deployments.It’s not possible to optimize the supply chain unlessaccurate and timely transaction data is available foranalysis. B2B integration hubs have full visibility intothe flow of orders and therefore can be used to createpredictive inventory allocation recommendations. 3
  • 5. By using a B2B integration hub to enable IntegratedVMI, we facilitate accurate forecasting, can reactimmediately to pre-configured inventory trigger pointsand generate a wealth of historical data for futurerefinement of our allocation decisions. When properlyimplemented, the algorithms use historical patternsand supply chain variables (e.g. transit time, safety-stock preferences, customer usage patterns) to providethe best recommendations to account managersresponsible for ensuring customer satisfaction.Appterra is a technology solution provider thatspecializes in Integration-as-a-Service in the petro-chemical sector and also for mid-market manufacturers.Appterra’s services are enabled by a proprietarytrading community management platform that includessolutions specifically tailored for Integrated VMI: 4
