How can supply chain consultants help?
There are a number of ways our supply chain consultants can help you with different aspects of your inventory and supply chain. Here are a few of them to get you started:
Quickly asses your inventory costs and suggest plans to reduce them:
Unnecessary and excessive costs are the last thing you can afford to bear when it comes to supply chain inventory.
SCSA’s inventory management consultants can precisely and rapidly assess your inventory costs and help you identify where you can improve. After that, our consultants can help you implement actions that will help you reduce your inventory costs. These actions can include how to safely re-balance the purchase volume and frequency of a specific product according to your warehouse’s space in order to reduce storage costs and increase capacity.
Vendor consolidation can be an essential piece of the procurement puzzle and of value to every business of every size. Our supply chain consultants are experts in the tasks of vendor consolidation and can save you from many of the related problems.
Product location and product slotting:
A well located and slotted product makes perfect use of warehouse space and can dramatically improve your productivity and warehouse efficiency. SCSA’s inventory management consultants are experts in product slotting and product locating in warehouses of any kind.
Improving your warehouse efficiency:
Whether you’re just seeking a bit of counsel from our inventory management consultants, or you’re placing the whole task of inventory management design and implementation into our hands — your warehouse’s efficiency is destined to increase.
A poorly managed inventory can cause:
- Slow-moving or obsolete inventory.
- Poor on-shelf availability.
- Crammed warehouse inventory.
- Too much capital invested in inventory.
- Reduced sales.
- Higher costs.
Diagnosing and eliminating problems like these, on your own, is very difficult while keeping daily business operating. A pair of professional eyes and hands to design an inventory management scheme for your warehouse is your best solution. An astutely-crafted inventory design will reduce costs and also make it easier for you to manage items within the inventory making it easier and more efficient to get your hands on a specific item whenever needed.
