Inventory Reduction Workshop
(Seven ways to reduce inventory while improving customer service performance)

Workshop Date: 2018-09-20

As the global economy becomes more competitive, firms have to brace themselves for more challenges. While profitability is always a key concern, managing cash flow is becoming the top priority of most firms. The importance of reducing inventory in either normal or abnormal times cannot be overemphasized as firms look for ways to reduce cost and generate cash flow. Lower inventory, after all, translates to lower working capital, more cash, and lower obsolescence cost.
