Collaborate to Reduce Inventory
Collaboration with customers and channels gives you valuable insight that helps you manage inventory more effectively. E2open’s Inventory Collaboration application provides visibility into every item and downstream location so you can make better decisions about positioning and replenishing stock. Multiple sell-side vendor-managed inventory (VMI) models are supported. The result is less inventory and better customer service.
