Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Standards Association (VICS)

Overview: The Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Standards Association (VICS) worked to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the retail supply chain. The Association's overall objective was to improve product availability to the consumer by providing leadership and encouragement in the identification, development and implementation of volunteer standards, protocols, guidelines, and other mechanisms. VICS implemented Quick Response (QR), a cross-industry standard, that attempted to simplify the flow of product and information in the retail industry for retailers and suppliers alike. VICS' technical work committees were worked on improving supply chain performance through continuous improvement of existing supply chain processes, development of new collaborative commerce business processes and effective implementation of e-Commerce standards. *Merged with GS1 US in 2012 to form the GS1 US Apparel and General Merchandise Initiative
