With limited visibility EWD was driving blind

Eastern Warehouse Distributors (EWD) faced a critical challenge with their most important product line, which was imported from China. This business-critical product line is vital to EWD’s success, but manual processes with spreadsheets led to errors, excess stock, and stock-outs. Due to COVID-19, lead times had increased, and by the time they discovered they had a problem, it was too late to rectify. Recognizing the need for improved inventory visibility and automation, EWD embarked on a journey to enhance efficiency and accuracy in their operations.

Human errors through the use of spreadsheets can be costly. We ordered a whole shipment of incorrect products due to the incorrect Vlookup being selected.

Revving up inventory efficiency with Netstock
Time savings

The transition to Netstock resulted in significant time savings in managing inventory. It takes a fraction of the time to create and process POs, to the extent that this task has now been absorbed into the role of one person.

Managing our inventory from China is crucial for our business, especially considering it’s our top-selling product line. Netstock has provided the visibility we needed to navigate extended lead times effectively, automate orders, and ensure we always have the right amount in stock.

Reduction in excess stock

EWD reduced its overall inventory value from $3 million to $1.8 million and its excess inventory from $68,000 to $1 600. They have freed up capital and now have a more balanced inventory investment.

Enhanced supplier relationships and quicker decision-making

Netstock enabled EWD to navigate the Chinese New Year with confidence. With detailed forecasts down to the day and the ability to scale up and adjust orders based on percentage, the team was able to make informed inventory decisions. Deliveries were strategically staggered during Chinese New Year, ensuring a smooth influx of inventory. Leveraging Netstock’s dashboards and forecasting capabilities, bottlenecks were avoided, and operational efficiency was maintained.
