From the Desk of Kim Zablocky:
Proactive = Winner


RVCF LogoWinners are proactive. Back in 2000, when we set out to create the Vendor Compliance Federation, the purpose was two-fold:

  1. To bring manufacturers and wholesalers together to best practice order fulfillment requirements by retailer specification. The primary focus was to reduce or eliminate compliance deductions that at the time were quickly approaching 2% of gross invoice.
  2. Retail access. Manufacturers/Wholesalers wanted a place to meet retail customers to discuss pressing issues or to "hear from the source" what exactly the retailer wanted from its suppliers. This practice, increased and improved communication, in turn allowed for the supplier to hone their order fulfillment practice thereby reducing compliance deductions.

All the while, VCF, now RVCF, has worked with both sides of the trading partner relationship to bring alignment, improve business process practices, and enhance communication between trading partners.

This brings us to the RVCF Annual Fall Conference in Scottsdale, AZ. Most major U.S. retailers will be on hand to collaborate, meet with suppliers one-on-one, conduct breakouts, and meet with their peer group, while the suppliers can enjoy meeting with their largest retail customers all at one location - reducing time and cost, and best yet, learning the best practice of filling orders that will get you paid in full, deduction free. No other conference offered today is structured to give retail trading partners a neutral meeting place to discuss, explore and learn how to ship the "Perfect Order." If you're a merchandise supplier that doesn't feel the need to participate, then you can't complain about retail compliance charges. Be proactive - be a winner.

Retailers want best price, on-time, complete, document error free, damage free shipments. Merchandise Suppliers want more orders and to be paid in full. There's room for both at RVCF!
