Making Your Inventory Work For You, Not Against You
Presented by: William H. Marvin, Chief Procurement Officer Al Copeland Investments, Inc.,
For a business that sells product, having inventory on hand is part of creating a positive customer experience. When customers can get items quickly, loyalty is built because customers know the business keeps product in stock. If inventory moves regularly and quickly, business owners are likely to carry some excess inventory. In order to make inventory work for you, the first step is to clearly understand supply chain components, types of inventory and the pros and cons of excess inventory. In my presentation, I will discuss 8 Essential Inventory Management Techniques and the key inventory sales ratio to measure how efficient a company is in managing its inventory. These strategies can be applied across multiple industries to reduce cost of goods and maximize profits.
