Suppliers in every industry struggle with how to properly manage inventory, typically using a mix of science and experience to determine how many products need to be stored at a location prior to delivery to the customer. Excess inventory of each product has a negative financial impact on the supplier, while a “stock out” results in loss of sale and a negative impact to the customer. The best scenario comes from having the right product, in the right place, at the right time. But in order to achieve that sweet spot of the perfect amount of inventory, suppliers must have true visibility into the amount of product at the final storage location. Current methods of tracking inventory include manually counting what is on the shelf or using the end user’s Point-of-Sale system to calculate stock levels. Methods like these are often labor intensive, inaccurate and costly.
