Inventory Solutions

Inventory can become a headache if not controlled. Even organisations with clearly defended purchasing and inventory management policies, can find their inventory holding creep upwards. Inventory creep not only impacts cash flow, but erodes customer satisfaction through the increased risk of picking errors, rework, returns and obsolescence.

Supply Chain Visibility

End-to-end supply chain data and alert visibility, enables manufacturers, importers and exports, independent, real-time, accurate information on the global position and condition of their cargo. This level of data permits lead-time reduction, reduced inventory holding and greater supply chain harmony.

Inventory Review

Working in partnership with a client, a detailed review of current inventory management practices is conducted. This review involves interviews, observations and data gathering, at the client’s premises, and analysis of findings off site. The reviews findings and recommendations are discussed to agree corrective actions. Reviews are tailored to meet each client’s individual requirements, with timeframe and scope agreed during the initial consultation.
