Schneider and Datalliance

May 26, 2017

Schneider Electric Canada has selected the Datalliance VMI platform as the technology foundation for the company’s Vendor Managed Inventory program to be launched in early 2017. 

Adrian Thomas, Schneider Electric Vice President, Partner Business & Channel said: “We are eager to begin using VMI to collaborate more closely with our channel partners. It will help us work together every day to ensure high service levels and well-planned product assortments for the end customer while gaining inventory and supply chain efficiencies for both our distributors and us. That will ultimately lead to increased mutual sales and profitability. We selected Datalliance as our platform provider because they are the recognized leader in VMI technology and service, and are well-respected by electrical distributors across all of North America, including Canada. They also took time to understand our goal set, making us very aligned on VMI expectations.”

Tom Hoar, Datalliance Sales Director said: “We are proud to welcome Schneider Electric Canada to the Datalliance customer community. They are dedicated to supply chain excellence, and to working with key partners to increase sales and service to their mutual end customers while at the same time streamlining inventory management, order handling and product life cycle management. The VMI process in Canada has picked up lots of steam the past couple years in the electrical space, VMI is no longer seen as just an IT project, but is now recognized as a focused sales growth and service initiative rooted in collaboration. Suppliers and distributors have both seen the benefits in terms of improved service levels, inventory efficiency, visibility and end customer sales. Companies in the electrical industry in Canada are now steadily expanding the use of this collaborative business process to more trading partners.”
