What is a Vics Hanger? Is this a particular brand of clothing hanger?
First of all "Vics" is an acronym, for The Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions Association. Now, lets discuss what this association does... The Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions (VICS) Association has enabled companies in the retail and consumer-focused industries to eliminate billions of dollars of waste and delay. They have achieved this by creating voluntary guidelines, often referred to as “standards.” VICS has created new best practices that ultimately lead to lower costs and better availability of products for consumers. VICS’ volunteer members improve the flow of products and information throughout retailing and the consumer-focused industries that supply retail. The Association provides leadership and an environment in which executives can make a difference in their industry, their company performance- and their personal commitment to make the world work a little better.
The mission of VICS is to remove impediments to the smooth flow of merchandise to the store floor. Reduce inventory handling costs, cycle time to get product to floor, and increase sales. VICS being a leader in the industry, must take responsibility for providing the membership with sustainable hanger options. They believe that contributing to a more sustainable environment is good business practice and the right thing to do for the future generations.
Hanger suppliers have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in improving the environment. Hanger companies can do so by using resources more efficiently, providing an 'eco-friendly' product that meets expectations and striving to reduce the overall impact on the environment.
The purpose of these Floor-Ready Merchandise guidelines is to provide suppliers and retailers with uniform guidelines for the efficient preparation of products for presentation to the consumer.
The VICS Floor-Ready Merchandise committee was established in October, 1993, to study the logistics of delivering floor-ready merchandise. A variety of activities, ranging from hanger application to security tagging, has been examined by the task force. These guidelines currently address retail price marking and hanger application. It is anticipated these guidelines will be expanded to cover a broader range of subjects related to the preparation of floor-ready merchandise.
In developing these guidelines, emphasis has been placed on the importance of partnership between retailer and supplier. The intention is to maximize the efficiency of applying retail price information, hanger application, and other activities to consumer products when applicable. It is the responsibility of the retailer and supplier to decide where in the product pipeline these procedures can take place most effectively.
Industry standardization should eliminate time and inefficiencies from the product pipeline. Adherence to these guidelines should enable suppliers and retailers to improve the value of products delivered to the consumer, with the potential of increasing profits.
