Reduce distribution steps and unnecessary stock holding costs with Supplier Direct
In today’s fast paced field service environment, having the right inventory available is the key to meeting tight SLAs.
To achieve this, companies will often over order stock, opting to hold it in large warehouses rather than risk being without it at a critical time.
Not only does this tie up capital, it’s also expensive. Inventory carrying costs usually account for between 20% or 30% of the total cost of inventory. This cost is further compounded when the held part is damaged or becomes obsolete. You have had to pay upfront for the part and for storage, and there is now no way to recoup that cost.
There is a better way. Using Supplier Direct, parts go directly from your suppliers to the service edge without ever ending up in long term storage, all with a pre-8 am delivery.
