美國VICS協會簡介


  Since 1986, VICS, the Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions Association, has worked to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the entire supply chain. VICS pioneered the implementation of a cross-industry standard, Quick Response (QR) that simplified the flow of product and information in the retail industry for retailers and suppliers alike.

  VICS is made up of companies who have proven that a timely and accurate flow of product and information between trading partners significantly improves their competitive position. It has been demonstrated that cross-industry commerce standards facilitate better customer service while reducing costs. VICS' participation with hundreds of small and large companies, has established that the implementation of VICS' business processes and standards achieve excellent returns that go far beyond initial expectations.

  A 1996 study by Kurt Salmon Associates showed that companies which implemented VICS' business replenishment processes had dramatic results: increased sales, faster turns, improved inventory control and cost savings. While the results were impressive, VICS continued to develop a new collaborative dimension to supply chain processes, Collaborative, Planning, Forecasting, and Replenishment (CPFR®).

  By 2001, an AMR Research study demonstrated that retailers and suppliers jointly achieved higher sales with double digit inventory decreases, improved in stock at wholesale and on the retail shelf, at a lower overall logistics cost. At the same time, Kurt Salmon Associates estimated that "the benefits of CPFR® for just the apparel industry alone, could conservatively total $8.3 billion annually".

  VICS' Committees continue to build on their legacy of supply chain excellence through continuous improvement of existing supply chain processes, development of new collaborative commerce business processes and effective implementation of e-Commerce standards.

美國VICS協會的價值主張

  VICS is a not-for-profit association that is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. All initiatives are driven by its membership. It is a voluntary organization that provides a neutral, collaborative environment, where trading partners, competitors and service providers can come together to develop innovative ideas into practical business applications. One of the key strengths of VICS is the diversity of its members, who exchange ideas, concepts and practices and in doing so improve the retail supply chain. Total annual sales of VICS members exceed $2 Trillion, making it one of the largest industry associations.

  VICS has a legacy of developing business guidelines and processes that have improved supply chain management effectiveness and efficiency, while increasing retail sales. The use of the bar code in physical distribution, EDI, Quick Response, Floor-Ready Merchandise, the VICS Bill of Lading and Collaborative Planning. Forecasting & Replenishment (CPFR®) are examples of successful business practices. By employing the guidelines and processes developed by the various VICS committees, the retail industry has become a leader in supply chain practices across all industry, dramatically improving efficiency and effectiveness, taking billions to the bottom line over the last 20 years.

  Successful companies maintain an external posture, i.e. they ensure that they are employing the business practices that optimize performance. They also are aware of developments in new products or service offerings by encouraging their organizations to become and continue to be involved in outside activities. Typically this is done through relationships with academic institutions, trade associations and consulting organizations. VICS is a unique organization where active involvement results in a combination of education, awareness and the practical application of solutions.

  Current areas of focus that will make a significant contribution to the retail industry include:

  * Improve speed to market by eliminating, through education and information, obstacles caused by non-compliance to retail vendor requirements.

  * Develop a global logistics model that includes the employment of technology, business processes, and the identification of organizational requirements for effective supply chain management.

  * In collaboration with GS1 Taiwan and GS1 Hong Kong, assist in the development of the “Global Collaborative Commerce Logistics” initiative. The objective is to improve speed to market and global supply chain efficiency and effectiveness.

  * Create apparel and electronic verticals that will address domestic and global challenges specific to these industries.

  * In cooperation with GS1 US and the American Trucking Association (ATA), improve the implementation of EDI transportation transaction sets.

  * Explore the potential benefits of Collaborative Product Design for apparel, in cooperation with GS1 Hong Kong. Building a case for action, ROI model and a roadmap for successful implementation.

  * Support Penn State University’s Data Integrity Research.

  The Bottom Line: For the past 20 years VICS has been delivering a strong value proposition to its members. The model established by VICS’ founders, who were committed to improving efficiency and effectiveness of the retail supply chain, continues to demonstrate its viability. VICS members remain committed to excellence and the principles of integrity and objectiveness. VICS is a strong trademark that stands for value.
