Advanced Inventory and Warehouse Management

It’s tough to be in business today.  Most organizations face more competition than ever before.  They have fewer profit dollars to invest in people, facilities, equipment and inventory.  At the same time, customers are more demanding.  They require better product availability, want lower prices and often request additional value-added services.

It is imperative for organizations to maximize the productivity and profitability in their investment in stock inventory.  In addition, they must learn how to best cooperate and coordinate with other members of their supply chain to ensure that customers’ expectations are met (or hopefully exceeded) while maximizing all of the partners’ net profits.

Salvo Global’s 3-day comprehensive Master class on “Advanced Inventory and Warehouse management”is designed for you to assess your current inventory planning and warehousing operations, identify opportunities for improvement, and develop an action plan to implement a complete set of best practices.During the workshop, we will demonstrate “best practice” techniques using spreadsheet tools that you will receive to use after the session with your own data.  You will also create a policies and procedures guide that will allow your organization to not only achieve your immediate goals, but ensure that you continue to maximize the productivity and efficiency of inventory-related operations.

For this master class, we will utilize the database from actual EIM clients, as well as forecasting and analysis spreadsheets developed by EIM to conduct “what-if” scenarios to illustrate the concepts and principles presented. As a bonus, delegates will receive a set of the spreadsheets used in the seminar along with detailed instructions so they can perform this analysis on their own inventory data. Best of all, as we proceed through the session,you will be able to develop step-by-step instructions necessary to develop and maintain an effective inventory program for your company.
