Daniel Fritsch October 14 2015 2 min read Wholesale distributors have a tendency to carry a lot of “unhealthy” inventory in their supply chain. Slow moving, expensive items get placed in their warehouses only to become excess stock or even obsolete stock which ties up working capital and compounds carrying costs associated with storing those items. The feedback we have received from wholesale distributors, ranging from Hardware to HVAC to the Lumber industry, is that they could use a “health check up” for their inventory. At the end of the day, traditional inventory management and enterprise resource planning tools aren’t enough to help maximize profitability and performance. Regardless of industry, each business we talk to desires to achieve the following: Lower excess stock and obsolete stock levels Increase customer satisfaction and service levels Increase accuracy of stock replenishment and procurement Deploy systematic improvements within days not months or years Extend optimization capability to on-premise legacy systems Eazystock is offering a free inventory assessment and health check up for businesses looking for an objective 3rd party report of their inventory health. The report is free and presented back in the form of an executive summary that can be shared internally within your organization.
