Too many distributors get caught in operational silos of purchasing, inventory management and sales functions; they don’t fully optimize service levels while minimizing capital investment.
Join us Thursday, March 28, in this one-hour webcast as Brad Johnson of Building Products Distribution - Supply Chain Analytics outlines best practices for more strategic purchasing and inventory management practices.
This MDM webcast will outline the tools to help improve your operations planning in these critical areas:
- Demand planning: How to determine sales team resource allocation based on forecasted sales and service-level goals by product.
- Supply planning: How to best align with suppliers’ capacity, manufacturing lead times and transportation lead times.
Longtime distribution purchasing executive Brad Johnson will explore each area of opportunity to give you immediate gains – and position your organization to achieve significant cost advantages.
