Reduce excess 

Why is it that you always have too much of the items that don’t sell? Excess inventory in your warehouse is a major problem:

  •  You have to warehouse it, costing you money
  • You have to insure it, costing you money
  • It’s value depreciates over time, costing you money
  • It gets stolen, costing you money
  • You have to keep counting the same stock over-and-over, costing you money
  • A large chunk of working capital is tied up in dead stock, costing you money


Your business can do so much better

Imagine how quickly you could get rid of the Excess Inventory in your warehouse if you never ordered the wrong stuff? You would only order inventory that actually sold, and made profit, instead of inventory that didn’t move, and cost you money.

What if you could always place the best order, even if your supplier imposed some serious ordering constraints on you?

And when you’ve placed an order, but market conditions change, do you find out too late? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you found out in time, so that you can cancel the order, or at least reduce the quantities?

 

Minimise Stock- outs 

Stock outs are terrible for your business. When a customer wants to buy an item from you and you don’t have stock

  • You are losing the sale of the product
  • The customer may decide to buy their whole basket of products from your competitor
  • Your competitor may give your customer great service, and now you’ve lost a customer for life


Don’t fight fires all day, because you don’t have the correct inventory

Instead of fighting fires all day, wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could just calmly take orders from your happy customers all day long? Focussing on profit-making activities is so much more fulfilling than dealing with irate customers.

Imagine how many more sales you could make if you always had the correct inventory when your customers ordered it? You will immediately see the improvement in your bottom line.

It’s proven that it’s much easier to keep an existing customer than to get new ones. One easy way to keep those customers is to have a great service level

 

Place orders quicker 

It’s your least favourite time of the month: Ordering time. You spend hours, if not days doing mundane, soul destroying work:

  • Gather all the sales figures for all the products from a supplier
  • Attempt to do some kind of forecast, taking into account seasons and trends
  • Guess what kind of safety margin you should build in, because you don’t trust your forecast, or your supplier
  • Check what stock you still have on-hand, and offset it with firm orders from customers
  • Take the lead time for delivery into account
  • Take minimum order quantities, order multiples, or other supplier constraints into account

By the time you have all this information together in the mother-of-all Excel spreadsheets, it’s out of date.

 

Your life can be so much simpler

Instead of fighting spreadsheets every week, imagine if you could press a button, and the perfect order for a supplier shows up on your screen.

No matter how complex your supply chain is, you want the perfect order at every point in the chain:

  • Fill the shelves in all your retail outlets
  • Have your DC stocked precisely to supply your retail stores
  • Assemble the right amount of finished good in your manufacturing locations to supply the DC
  • Order the correct amount of raw materials from external suppliers, even if they have long lead times, to keep the manufacturing plant going

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you knew that every ordering decision at every one of those point are optimal, and driving you towards your ideal stocking policy?.
