Take Total Control of Your Inventory

Right products. Right places. Right times.

It’s your mission. But with today’s on-demand customer expectations combined with multiple locations and hundreds of thousands of SKUs, your job has never been more complex.

 

You rely on your ERP to help you manage it all. And that works OK, at best, for high-demand, predictable SKU items, but for low-demand, unpredictable SKUs, that’s another story. It doesn't keep key parts in stock or buys too much of SKUs that are no longer selling because their sales are not predictable.

Failing to optimize your slow-moving SKUs causes:
  • Excess dead stock
  • Low inventory turns
  • Lost sales
  • Low fill rates
  • Dissatisfied clients
  • Too many backorders

Your Questions, In Focus

What is inventory optimization?

Inventory optimization determines the optimal inventory level for a business to maintain at any given time to ensure efficient operations. Optimizing inventory involves analyzing sales trends, customer behavior, product life cycle, and supply chain disruptions to make informed decisions about inventory planning. It ensures businesses maintain a balanced inventory that meets customer demands while minimizing inventory holding costs.

How can I optimize inventory for maximum results?

Here are some key factors to optimize your inventory performance:

  • Measure forecast accuracy and adjust forecast settings regularly so that forecasts are as accurate as possible.
  • Define inventory policies for each meaningful group of items so that ERP purchasing settings can be configured for each group.
  • Monitor each product’s lifecycle.
  • Monitor customer preferences and identify when they change.
  • Monitor supplier performance, especially recent fluctuations that require adjustments in your inventory procurement.
  • Establish and follow a regular cadence to review metrics (e.g. forecast accuracy, overstock, and demand and supply changes) to adjust ERP settings and assumptions.
How does Thrive optimize inventory without implementing a new purchasing system?

We developed inventory optimization software that targets low-volume SKUs and unpredictable supply and demand that constrain the functionality of your existing ERP. Our AI technologies plug into your ERP with an API connection, collecting your real data to show you the full picture of your total inventory.
