Vendor Managed Inventory Through AiM & Go

Western Washington University
Presented by Julie Larmore

Session Description

In conjunction with its ReADY/AiM/Go implementation, Western Washington University is in the final stages of implementing an onsite vendor managed inventory program through Fastenal. As part of this onsite solution, our tradespeople will be ordering parts through AiM & Go which are sent directly to Fastenal to fulfill from their onsite operation at Western’s maintenance yard.

This session will cover how we are managing vendor inventory lists, purchase requests and fulfillment, purchasing and invoicing of inventory materials and lessons learned from the implementation.
