Our outward focus, and what we have consistently communicated to our supplier partners, is that we have put the program in place to identify behavior and practices that create friction in the supply pipeline, and to create incentives, both internal and external, to make changes to these practices to remove the friction points.
Sugar Land, TX (PRWEB) January 4, 2006
Compliance Networks, a leading provider of vendor compliance optimization solutions, today announced it will be participating in the National Retail Federations Annual tradeshow event. Joining Compliance Networks will be Dave Schneider, Director of Logistics for leading automotive retailer, Pep Boys.
Mr. Schneider will discuss the benefits of best-in-class vendor compliance optimization and the positive results Pep Boys has enjoyed since deploying Compliance Networks’ rCMS solution. Mr. Schneider notes, “Our outward focus, and what we have consistently communicated to our supplier partners, is that we have put the program in place to identify behavior and practices that create friction in the supply pipeline, and to create incentives, both internal and external, to make changes to these practices to remove the friction points.”
Topics for discussion will include identifying the hidden costs of vendor non-compliance and lost sales opportunity costs, as well as the techniques for implementing best-in-class vendor compliance processes and strategies that have enabled Pep Boys to establish successful collaborative relationships with its vendors. Mr. Schneider will also review the top and bottom line benefits of perfect order execution and optimized flow within the retail supply chain that result from optimized vendor compliance management.
