Vitec developed a system that will increase efficiency which decreases the costs to the customer.
THE CITY OF DETROIT HAD WORKED WITH THE PREVIOUS SUPPLIER FOR 9 PLUS YEARS AND WAS CHALLENGED TO UNDERSTAND THEIR FREIGHT SPEND AND SERVICE DELIVERY TO THEIR MECHANICS.
Lack of control / visibility of parts inventory on hand.
There was limited control / accountability for obsolete inventory.
The City of Detroit wanted a supplier that could provide quality brand–neutral auto parts for it’s fleet.
