All of this simply means a significant cost and time savings in your supply chain. Sales orders, purchase orders, material movement forms, and label usage transactions can be simplified or completely eliminated due to sophisticated automation through e-business technologies. Unreliable component forecasts are replaced with tightly integrated, adaptable, value chain processes and shortened manufacturing lead times directly triggered by your specific and changing production needs.

Inventory Management

Topflight can assist you in developing a unique vendor managed inventory or consignment inventory systems to your specifications. Unnecessary paperwork can be eliminated through e-business links, and the payment process can be tied to customer shipments or label usage. Vendor managed inventory (VMI) is a system where Topflight, as a supplier, monitors label inventories and requirements based on customer production schedules or pull signals. Buffer inventories are managed based on safety lead time or calculated safety stock to ensure maximum value. In addition to resident supplier coordination for production order flow, Topflight can also place employees at your site to seamlessly coordinate new or changed parts, designs, specifications, approvals, and first production runs at all facilities.

Topflight Corporation has extensive experience in a variety of inventory management programs, and has custom designed consignment inventory solutions for major customers in medical, personal care, and industrial markets. Some have realized annual savings of up to 25% of total label cost by cutting in-house costs, eliminating obsolete inventory, and increasing weekly capital.
