Inventory Management

Inventory is a result of supply happening before demand. Stocks can be kept low when supply and demand are synchronized. Synchronization is difficult if the demand signal or the supply fluctuates, which leads to either stock-outs or excess inventory.

Inventory management is the art of maintaining stock at the right level to buffer the supply chain against peak demand and low supply – ensuring overall low inventory and high product availability. In inventory management, we see an intersection of many disciplines in your business. From Sales to R&D, or operations to procurement: inventory management optimization is a cross-functional matter where individual, sometimes conflicting, goals meet.

Our inventory management solution takes all your individual goals into account in a holistic approach, like balancing costs, cash, services, and risks. Our easy-to-use-solution provides the expertise for measurable results from day one.
