Inovis Social Network is a new online community specifically for those in supply chain management. This new software is a way for those in the supply chain to have direct access to those individuals involved in the supply chain, which could prevent delays. Big Lots is one of the first major corporations to use this secure social network.
Katy Keane, the vice president of transportation services, had this to say about the network:
“The Inovis Social Network proved valuable in the development and monitoring of our vendor compliance initiatives. As a retailer with over 1,300 stores, accurate and timely inventory flow is critical to our business and our vendor compliance program is one of the key tools we use to help us achieve our goals. We’ve benefited from the speed and visibility the online community provides, and it has helped us improve how we collaborate with partners and quickly resolve issues.”
