M Members VS Vendor Showcase


Datalliance has specialized in helping companies implement and operate successful Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) programs since 1991. We were a pioneer in offering VMI as an Internet-based 'On Demand' service using the 'Software as a Service' (SaaS) approach, and have more experience in this field than just about anyone in the world. Today, we offer an expanding range of collaborative sales and inventory optimization services based on our proven data acquisition, verification, and normalization infrastructure.

As a leading VMI service provider, we are managing thousands of supplier, distributor, retailer, and end customer locations with millions of SKUs and billions of dollars in sales orders. We serve leading companies in a wide range of industries, as well as diverse markets, products, and geographic locations.

Our customers consider us a critical partner in the deployment and operation of their VMI programs. As your VMI partner, we have the knowledge, experience, and resources to:

Substantially reduce the startup time and on-going effort to provide VMI to your customers
Keep your VMI program continuously moving forward with industry trends, customer expectations, and technology changes
Provide a lower, more predictable total cost for your VMI program

Knowledge and Experience

As VMI specialists, we "eat, sleep, and breathe" VMI every day. We have extensive knowledge and experience in every aspect of VMI:

Strategic VMI program planning
Principles, techniques, and evolving best practices of inventory management
The technical, functional, and human dimensions of initial implementation
Daily communications and computer system operations
Customer support and problem resolution
Continuous VMI process improvement
Investment in VMI

As one of the world's leading VMI service providers, we make extensive investments in the software, infrastructure, tools, and people needed to offer a comprehensive and reliable VMI service:

Advanced VMI software
A state-of-the-art data and communications center
Well-refined implementation processes and tools
Some of the industry's best technical and functional professionals

Economies of Scale

Because we serve the VMI needs of so many companies through a single centrally managed service, we are able to concentrate resources and spread overhead costs in a way few individual companies could with an in-house operated system. We provide:

Lower total cost of ownership
Predictable total cost of ownership

Even at lower total cost, we deliver:

Greater breadth and depth of capabilities, service, and expertise
Greater operational efficiencies
Greater availability of personnel for periods of peak need, such as new location implementations
