What’s going on?

On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, at 10 AM CST, SupplyPike and Supplier Community are teaming up to bring you session #2 of our Ultimate OTIF Workshop: Improving Your OTIF Scores!

With the 2020 new changes Walmart made to its On-Time In-Full (OTIF) program, it’s harder than ever to be compliant. So, how do you reach that 98% goal each month? In this workshop, we’ll dive into how to help you improve your scores.

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 2nd session, Improving Your OTIF Scores, will be on Wednesday, December 9th at 10 AM CST and will last 2 hours. We’ll focus on identifying the root causes of low OTIF scores and how to boost your performance.
