How to Monitor Company Inventory with a BI System ?

Big Data

Inventory is an important asset of a company. Different from cash, which is saved in bank accounts, inventory is stored in a number of places such as warehouses, outlets, store rooms or even offices.  For that, it needs a higher level of control. But how?

Inventory is a flow concept.  If you are asked a question “Should a company keep more or less inventory?”, how would you respond?

Less Inventory: As the aim is to convert stock to cash to improve the liquidity of the company, so keep it less.  Having said that, what about we do not have sufficient stock to meet the customer demand?  Reordering from vendors would take time and we will be losing sales.

More Inventory: The downside is naturally the risk of keeping too much dead stock that would tie up cash on hand.

It sounds that there should be an optimal level of inventory for “each” kind of inventory.  Nevertheless, do we have enough experience to figure out this optimal level?

In this coming fourth episode of Mr Chan's BI series of webinars, the speaker will showcase how we can visualize the inventory positions at all levels and how we can reconcile stock movements with stock balance easily. More importantly, we will visualize how stock level changes with respect to the customer demand so that an inventory controller is able to get an intuitive feel about the optimal inventory position before taking a proper and swift action on inventory replenishment.

Don’t miss this opportunity to watch the behaviour of inventory flow with an impressive and unique dashboard design.  You will certainly find it a worthy webinar.
