Every manufacturer and distributor has inventory; and it is often the focus of cost-cutting efforts and a main factor in operational strategy. When companies meet with us inventory management is a challenge that is a key driver behind investing in a new ERP system. With orders coming in from multiple channels and lead times being at the mercy from a host of different obstacles, using outdated processes or technologies to manage inventory can be costly and inefficient.
