Description

Join Best Practices Inventory Management authority Grant Howard for a company changing session on how to maximize your company’s inventory investment impact and ROI. Best Practices inventory management plays a critical factor in the success of increased revenue, profits and customer experience. To thrive today, distributors have to balance the objectives of top and bottom line growth with the objectives of customer service and company longevity. Now more than ever distributors must understand the difference between buying and selling inventory versus managing inventory for growth, profit and customer experience.

Many distributors struggle with how to properly manage inventory, what the objectives are and how it all has to come together to drive stellar results. Many distributors forget that INVENTORY is the reason for their being. Grant will discuss concepts, tools and techniques that allow a distributor to offer stellar service while realizing improved returns on their inventory investment. Fill Rates, Turns, Freight, Transactional Cost, Surplus and Measurement will be discussed. Big picture – better profits, better service, better company!

Whether your company is getting ready to implement an inventory management process, already has a solid inventory management process established, or is somewhere inbetween; you will want to understand and implement these powerful inventory management steps. Don't miss this high impact, fast moving opportunity to take your company's inventory management process to a new level.
