This system truly does work. PENCOM did an excellent job setting up VI locations for us. They are constantly looking for ways to adjust and improve to fit our needs. The VI operates essentially automatically, and has relieved our resources from tending to everyday hardware emergencies. PENCOM’s portfolio is diverse and we have found ourselves exploring what other components we can put into this system other than just our standard hardware.

Using PENCOM Vendor Managed Inventory services provides our company with worry-free inventory management, no out of stock situations, reduced administration costs, and improved supply chain by ensuring the right products are in the right place at the right time. Under their VMI program, overstocking never occurs. Great program and excellent customer service!

The system works perfectly. It brought us confidence in our inventory, facilitating our logistics, and production control. We can carry out the controls remotely and thus guarantee our stock, minimizing eventual problems of line stop, allowing us to better meet the needs of our customers.
