Understanding the Basics
Kanban Inventory Management
Originating from the Japanese word for “signboard” or “billboard”, Kanban is a visual system for managing work as it progresses through a process. In inventory management, it ensures that you only order and produce what’s necessary, reducing waste and optimising storage.
Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI)
VMI is a streamlined approach where the supplier or vendor is responsible for maintaining the client’s inventory levels. This means we, as your labelling partner, take on the responsibility of ensuring you never run out of the labels you need.
Benefits of Choosing Kanban at Impact Labelling
With Kanban, everything is visual. Our system allows clients to see their inventory levels at a glance, ensuring they’re always aware of stock levels and when it’s time to reorder.
Kanban operates on a “just-in-time” principle. This means you only produce or order what’s necessary, leading to significant reductions in waste and overstock
The dynamic nature of Kanban means it can easily adapt to changes in demand, ensuring you’re never caught off guard by sudden market shifts.
Advantages of Opting for VMI at Impact Labelling
Optimised Inventory Levels
With VMI, we take the guesswork out of inventory management. We monitor your stock levels and replenish as needed, ensuring you always have the right amount of labels without tying up resources in excess inventory.
Enhanced Supplier Relationship
VMI fosters a closer relationship between supplier and client. At Impact Labelling, this means we’re always in tune with your needs, leading to faster response times and tailored services.
By letting us manage your inventory, you reduce the costs associated with stockouts and overstock. Plus, with our expertise, we can identify and implement further cost-saving measures in the inventory process.
Making the Right Choice
While both Kanban and VMI offer their unique set of advantages, the choice ultimately depends on your business needs. If you value visual clarity and flexibility, Kanban might be the right fit. On the other hand, if you prefer a hands-off approach where your inventory levels are optimised by a trusted partner, VMI could be the solution.

Whether you lean towards the visual prowess of Kanban or the efficiency of VMI, we have a dedicated solution ready for you.
