Simplify Vendor Management & Purchase Orders for Smoke Shops
Store key vendor information and simplify re-ordering with Thrive by Shopventory
Your vendors, or suppliers, are the building blocks to your smoke and vape shop. Without proper vendor management, sustainable growth and success are hard to achieve.
Many vape shop owners don’t see the positive correlation between healthy vendor relationships and optimized inventory. However, it’s the key to managing stock decisions, purchase orders, and maximized profits.
What is Vendor Management?
Vendor management refers to maintaining relationships with the reps and businesses you purchase the products for your smoke shop from. You likely work with dozens, or even hundreds, of vendors, maybe from all over the world. Each has unique vendor contracts, pay rates, and reps that need to be managed with a vendor management system.
Why is Vendor Management Important for Smoke & Vape Shops?
Successful vendor management can mean finding the cheapest price for cartridges. However, it’s also about strengthening supplier relationships so you can make more informed decisions and automate processes like purchase orders.
