Manage the Balancing Act with Advanced Inventory Management™

Inventory is a delicate balancing act. The key is having the right inventory and the right amount. Too much, and profit drains from your business. Additional results of too much inventory include potential uselessness and crowded warehouses that lead to high carrying costs and even damaged materials.

However, too little inventory and you lose sales. Too little causes unhappy customers when deliveries are late, expensive unplanned downtime when parts aren’t available, excessive premium freight charges and high product costs.

Obsolete Inventory Management

Insight into obsolete or potentially obsolete inventory can have a major impact on your inventory investment. By providing this insight, inadvertent purchases of potential obsolete inventory are prevented, reducing the size of potential write offs.

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

VMI is an agreement between you and a supplier to store their inventory at your facility, with them retaining ownership of the goods until you use them. The supplier receives EDI or other forms of notification advising that number of the inventory items have been used/sold, and then generates an invoice for the usage.

Trade Service Price Management

Buying components from multiple distributors can be complex because of varying pricing policies and contractual agreements. Consolidate data from multiple distributors and receive periodic updates to help ensure that buyers place orders with the most cost effective distributor.

Vendor Performance Management

Track multiple KPIs, including on time deliveries and average delivery time variance. Also, the application tracks total purchases, which helps when negotiating prices on future orders.

Cut to Order Management

Manage reusable reels and cut lengths of lumber, wire and cable. Track and optimize all cuts by length and gauge and inventory usage is suggested to minimize unusable lengths.

Advanced Shipping and Receiving Date Control

Control shipping and receiving dates on sales orders, you can offer a valuable service to customers who have space or other constraints that limit their ability to accept inventory outside of specified parameters.
