As one of the primary ingredients to any distribution company, inventory is important to understand, track, and manage. Without an accurate grasp of what inventory is costing the company and returning in revenue, the company is at risk of failing. To overcome this challenge, Dimensional Insight has created Inventory Advisor.
Inventory Carrying Costs are displayed as a percentage along with Current Inventory and include the detailed make-up of the carrying cost: lost opportunity, facility storage, service, and risk costs like shrinkage, spoilage, etc.
Shrinkage and Shrinkage Percentages are displayed as a straight number and percentage, with a graph showing value over time.
Average Cost Per Unit is displayed as a straight number with a graph showing value over time.
