Business Intelligence for Inventory
Inventory - Monitor, Control through exceptions, Plan & Forecast
A profitable business is contingent on optimal resource utilization. Smart investment in inventory is crucial. If you carry too much inventory, you spend the money for stock, but you are not recovering the expense in a timely fashion. If you carry too little inventory, you risk disappointing clients, retailers or important business partners. Inventory management and control is a delicate, multifaceted activity that requires constant attention. Inventory is expensive to buy and store, so the goal of inventory management must be to provide a seamless, timely supply of products to customers, partners and retailers, speedy order execution, swift collection of fees, and an ideal level of buffer stock.
As the Business Intelligence solution market evolves, inventory management professionals are paying close attention. A flexible, powerful Business Intelligence system is worth its weight in gold! Whether you need to understand current inventory levels, plan for a seasonal buying frenzy, assess back orders, find out the status of a shipment or forecast and predict inventory, a Business Intelligence Tool solution can be a powerful partner in your efforts!
