Reliable Inventory Levels
Summit stocks the names you trust in quantities that make us your hassle-free supplier. Internally, we leverage advanced forecasting and inventory management tools to ensure items required are available when and where they are needed. Our system inspects all items throughout each day to identify shortages. We maintain safety stocks to guard against stock outages.
The depth and breadth of our inventory helps ensure uninterrupted operations at your facilities.
In fact, each of your facilities can be set up as a separate “ship-to” location, with its own materials reorder points and forecasting parameters so that location’s needs are seen separately from any other, if desired.
The system also analyzes the number of turns per item and shows slow moving or dead stock. This allows for real-time monitoring of stock requirements for each location.
The system provides you with optimal transparency and control over materials by location.
Advanced Inventory Management
In addition to punch-out options for procurement, Summit offers an easy-to-use Web portal that connects customers to our inventory management and logistic systems.
The portal “MySummit®” allows for monitoring inventory levels and viewing real-time availability of materials assigned to individual facilities. Managers can review the subtotals of quantity and purchase value by material or manufacturer.

- View real-time inventory quantities on hand
