How QCI Benefits Product Sourcing Managers
How Can QCI Benefit Product Sourcing Managers?
If you serve as a product sourcing specialist or manager in the supply chain, much of the burden for merchandise that does not meet your company’s quality standards on imported shipments can land with you. If distributors, direct buyers or others down the supply chain discover a quality issue with a shipment of overseas merchandise, you may find yourself scrambling for answers to tough questions. Fortunately, with a trusted partner like Quality Corrections & Inspections, you can provide an answer and cost-effective solution to these challenging situations.
How to Manage Defective Goods as a Product Sourcing Manager
Depending on the source of the goods, you may have the option to return the merchandise to the manufacturer or supplier and hope for a fast and affordable replacement or rework. But this is not always a practical solution — especially if the shipment came from China or another distant overseas location. Unless you have established a solid business relationship with the supplier, you might not receive the new or repaired goods in time to satisfy the demands of your customers. And how can you be sure that you will not experience the same quality issues that plagued the original order?
A more efficient and typically more cost-effective solution is to have the goods reworked or repaired right here in the USA. You won’t have to deal with the lag in shipping time, and the expense is often much lower than when returning the shipment to its point of origin. You will also have greater control over the quality of the repaired merchandise.

Inspection, Repair & Rework Solutions for Quality Assurance Managers
The Value of Quality Corrections & Inspections for the Quality Assurance Team
Today’s warehouse managers and their quality assurance teams play a critical role in the supply chain: they bear the responsibility of ensuring that goods enter and exit their facility as efficiently as possible. They must have a thorough knowledge of all relevant inventory control practices and be able to implement them effectively. Strong supervisory skills are also essential for providing competent oversight of the various material handling, shipping and inbound receiving functions that fall under their purview.
Another vital role is efficiently resolving problem inventories that have been locked down and flagged for quality holds, detention or recall. These inventories can be problematic creating disruptions to just-in-time deliveries and inventory flow. Disposing problematic inventories or sending them back to the manufacturer represents a significant cost for warehouse and distribution center operations. And few warehouses have the time, manpower or expertise to rework or repair less than first quality goods.

If you’re a quality assurance manager in an industry such as footwear and apparel, consumer goods, fashion accessories, or toys, Quality Corrections and Inspections can repair or restore your merchandise quickly, efficiently and discreetly.
