Value of Inventory Data

Utilising inventory
data and insights

Companies can be neglectful of inventory matters and poor about gathering and maintaining data. But since most of a company’s value add passes through inventory, it is a great place to make improvements. This can help topline growth and, by avoiding losses and writedowns,  can help the bottom line, too.

Capturing value from inventory data

Companies may need to begin by reviewing and perhaps improving item tracking. For instance, a minority of organisations can track every single item, which means a lot of potential losses can occur. Mastering the processes of inventory and then developing good data handling and analytics can transform the very nature of inventory for your organisation.

Benefits of inventory data

As noted, inventory processes are often not optimised. Correcting these weaknesses, if present, and then capturing and analysing inventory data can be broadly transformational.

  • Attract more new and existing customers

  • Increase marketing ROI

  • Improve customer experience

  • Deliver cost savings

  • Create customer loyalty
