Free up cash! Is it time to redesign your inventory strategy?

AHLERS AND LLAMASOFT (a COUPA company)
WELCOME YOU TO THEIR ONLINE EVENT
Change the way you look at problematic supply chains.

How to optimize stock levels across your entire network to reduce inventory costs and free up more working capital elsewhere.

In today’s supply chains, it’s easy for a company’s inventory to be caught up as work in process. Cash-to-cash cycle times from procurement of supplies until payment can run up to several months, leaving you to pay for goods that have not been sold yet.

Companies must rethink their inventory strategy by keeping a holistic view of their full product, and customer portfolio. Inventory optimization allows you to build a digital supply chain model, to determine optimal inventory & buying strategies, evaluating different scenarios, comparing the outcome in finding your optimal direction before implementation.
