Before you can use your IMS as a Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) your YBO support staff has to enable the VMI features for you. In VMI-mode the IMS groups inventory users by roles equally named to locations. Users can only see and work with the products at locations that carry exactly the same names as the roles that they are assigned to. For example, Jeff working at Warehouse-SG-H1 will need to have the role Warehouse-SG-H1 assigned to him. When Jeff searches, picks, moves or takes orders he will only take inventory from the Warehouse-SG-H1 location.

The Picking List will be configured for your customer to be their landing page. Your customer will also have their customized menu with picking, moving and inventory reports. Inside the reports section your customer can run reports on their current consigned stock and picking transactions.

Triggered by stock level alerts and with your vendor login you can replenish your customer's consigned stock before it runs low.

And to generate your monthly invoices at the end of the month you run an inventory transactions report on the number of items taken by your customer out of their consigned stock.
