Optimizing inventory levels requires a special balancing act as well as the right tools and insight. Let's take a closer look at how the Sage Inventory Advisor add-on for Sage ERP can help.
What is Inventory Optimization?
Because when you stock too much inventory, you drive carrying costs up, use up warehouse space, and increase the risk of inventory obsolescence and write-offs. But when you stock too little inventory, you might have problems filling customer orders in a timely fashion - and that puts you at risk of losing the customer to a competitor or having to purchase more expensive “emergency” stock from another vendor.
What is Sage Inventory Advisor?
That’s where Sage Inventory Advisor comes in - a cloud-based add-on solution for Sage.
Sage Inventory Advisor integrates seamlessly with Sage 100, Sage 300, Sage 500, and Sage X3, pulling transactions and historical data out of your core ERP system, crunching the numbers using powerful algorithms, and feeding back the insight you need to optimize inventory.
User-friendly dashboards and visual gauges provide a clear picture of inventory health and quickly directs you to items requiring your immediate attention.
In short, Sage Inventory Advisor clearly spells out how much to order and when. And in the process of “right-sizing” inventory levels, you’ll improve fill rates, reduce stock-outs, free up cash that’s tied up in inventory, and significantly reduce the time you might be spending today fumbling around in spreadsheets and manually crunching numbers.
