TINLEY PARK, Ill. — In an effort to better reflect its value proposition and expanded scope of its supply channel optimization (SCO) service, Pan-Pro has changed its name to SavvyStock.
Cheryl Vlach, executive leader for SavvyStock, explained that the new name reflects the evolution of where the company is today and where it wants to be in the future. “For more than 20 years, our SCO service has been a highly innovative player in the vendor managed inventory (VMI) market. By optimizing fill rates and inventory investment, we have moved beyond traditional VMI, and we want our corporate identity to reflect this.”
Vlach added, “The SavvyStock SCO portfolio is an important tool for our supply chain partners because it provides them business insights to drive out operational costs and deploy market-optimized growth strategies for their stock inventory based on data-driven intelligence.”
According to Brian Bytnar, chief development officer for Van Meter Inc., SCO is a very valuable part of the company’s overall supply chain strategy. “SCO with Pan-Pro has helped Van Meter consistently improve inventory performance and customer service.”
“SavvyStock is the ultimate program that maximizes distributor profitability by reducing operating cost and enabling distributors to provide their customers with world class service at no additional cost,” explained Bernie Westapher, Panduit senior vice president and managing director.
