Achieve a lean supply chain through employing technology

Whether you are a wholesaler/distributor, a retailer or a manufacturer, having an efficient supply chain is the lifeblood of your business. Striking a balance between being able to fill sales from your customers and not tying up too much cash into slow-moving products is vital to your survival. Do away with inefficient Excel spreadsheets, and instead employ software integrated with your cloud ERP.

Using a combination of your present stock levels, sell-through rate, supplier lead time and days of stock, you are able to generate an accurate forecast. This inventory forecast can in turn then be used to generate purchase orders at the click of a button. Keep your finger on the pulse of your inventory across locations, and put slow-moving products on promotion to clear shelf space.
