Whether you are a retailer, manufacturer, dealer, wholesaler, or distributor, inventory management is a crucial part of your operations. Issues with inventory can make or break the business. Without proper inventory management, it is very difficult for companies to maintain control and handle the needs of customers. Proper management of the supply chain, inflow and outflow allow the business to thrive in today’s competitive environment.

While inventory management has always been a critical part of any business, it has become more valuable over the past decade as consumer expectations and shopping behaviors have changed rapidly in the age of Amazon and Omni-channel. As the stress on retailers to keep up increases, in turn, they increase the demand on their suppliers to perform. Therefore, it is very important for suppliers to maintain excellent inventory management to be able to meet customer demands for fast fulfillment while optimizing their warehouse space and assortment allocation. Today, many new inventory management solution providers have surfaced using more advanced data-driven methods to provide transparency, clarity, and efficiency to these complex operations.
