Safety stock is key

Achieving the holy grail of inventory management – the magical balance of minimal inventory while meeting variable customer demand in the face of unreliable supply – is only possible with optimal safety stock levels. “By monitoring how well we forecast a product and how reliable the supply is, Netstock dynamically adjusts the level of safety stock required,” explains Steven Cumper, Director.

“For items that are more likely to end up with excess, Netstock shrinks the safety stock away, while safety stock is increased for items with a risk of running out of stock,” Steven continues. Netstock’s ability to compute optimal safety stock levels has proven valuable for Medshop Australia.

Within 6 months, there was a 14% increase in product availability and a 38% increase in sales with just a 16% increase in focused investment.
