Multi-unit operators can shop Dot's selection of 127,000 SKUs to source new products, increasing sales for all stakeholders. Dot's volume and reach are unparalleled in the industry. Because Dot already sells to 4,465 distributors on a weekly basis, we give multi-unit operators access to over 930 manufacturers and 127,000 items that are available - with no individual product line minimum to their distributors. By keeping a consistent flow of products to the distributors, multi-unit operators can be assured access to the products they need, when they need them.
Promotions and LTOs are challenging for everyone in the supply chain. Demand is unpredictable. Timeliness -- getting product into the right hands at the right time -- is critical. Dot helps supply chain partners manage LTOs efficiently by creating a central location for initial product roll-out, providing one control point for communication, simplifying replenishment to the redistributor and reducing expenses through consolidation. Dot's weekly deliveries allow responsiveness to changes in demand and assume products make it to market quickly when needed. Plus, Dot reduces the need for distributors to buy in bulk, improving service and minimizing obsolete risk.
Increased Compliance and Standardization
Multi-unit operators rely on distributors to stock the products they need to provide a consistent experience and control costs. Through weekly Dot deliveries, distributors have greater control over their inventory, so they're more likely to have a steady supply of the products operators need. This increases compliance throughout the supply chain and allows for standardization of additional products in the future.
Dot's program helps distributors improve service levels to multi-unit operators. Through Dot, distributors place orders with short two to four day lead-times and get weekly deliveries on a Dot truck. We schedule all deliveries and take pride in our 97% on-time track record.
