Supply Chain Management | Trade
As retailing customers drive the shift from brick & mortar to omnichannel sales, competition in the distribution industry has intensified. Success was once limited to the largest distributors based on their investment in technology for inventory analysis. Today, technology and management technique level the playing field. We'll review the most progressive best practices on topics such as: integrating forecasting & replenishment, evaluating the impact of promotions, handling sporadic items, identifying surplus and excess inventory, initiating hub & spoke replenishment for better inventory and vendor position, and analyzing POS data to optimize inventory for consumption. These practices then provide more time to collaborate with customers and grow your business.
