Retail Inventory Management Workshop  



  • Online (ZOOM) – September 25, 2020



Inventory Management Workshop is designed to help retail management personnel understand retail inventory – it’s true and full cost; and why dead inventory is ‘cancer’ to profitability. The efficiency of a retail business is based on the retailer’s ability to provide the right products to the consumer, in the right quality, in the right quantity, at the right place and in right time. The entire process of retailing depends on the efficiency of the inventory management system. Inventory Management is one area that differentiates successful and unsuccessful retail businesses. It is the core of a successful retail business operation.

The right management of inventory investment equals business success – outstanding revenues, minimized cost, lower expiry ad pilferages etc; while poor inventory management investment is a recipe for disaster and exactly the opposite.
