What’s going on?

On Wednesday, December 2, 2020, at 10 AM CST, SupplyPike and Supplier Community are teaming up to bring you the Fundamentals of OTIF Workshop! This is session #1 of our Ultimate OTIF Workshop.

We know it’s hard to stay compliant with Walmart’s stringent On-Time In-Full (OTIF) program, especially with the 2020 changes Walmart made to the program’s goals in September. So, we’re bringing you a workshop to teach you about the basics of OTIF and how you can stay compliant.

What will the workshop look like?

The workshop will feature 1 hour of instruction, 30-45 minutes of workshop time, and 30-45 minutes of general discussion and questions.

The 1st session, The Fundamentals of OTIF, will be on Wednesday, December 2nd at 10 AM CST and will last 2 hours. We’ll be focusing on the basics of OTIF and how you can track your scores.
