Getting stock there on time

Satisfying customer demand

Business owners know what their customers want. But, because of the way they restock the shelves, many find it hard to supply it on time.

Background

Businesses with fast moving products face a choice.  Re-order less often in large quantities, or more often in smaller quantities.  With larger quantities you will save money but risk alot of unsold stock if no-one buys.  Smaller quantities will cost more but the risks of getting it wrong are less.

The right choice for many is to re-stock little and often in response to their customers’ needs.  But this may well be thwarted by long re-order cycles and prices that encourage purchasing in bulk.  The right stock will eventually arrive but the customer will be long gone.

The challenge

For a business to respond in time to their customers’ needs they need to know what they want, and when.  They then need a fast and accurate response from those delivering the stock.
