Channel Inventory Collaboration

Channel Inventory Collaboration

Collaboration with customers and channels gives you valuable insight that helps you manage inventory more effectively. E2open Inventory Collaboration provides visibility into every item and downstream location so you can make better decisions about positioning and replenishing stock. The outcome is less inventory, more revenue, and better customer service.

Drive results with less stock and higher service levels

Inadequate inventory level driving costs and missed revenue

Poor visibility and limited control over stock levels at partner locations

When sales are fulfilled by partners instead of a brand’s distribution centers and warehouses, brand owners lose control and visibility. Some partners may maintain excess safety stock to hedge against a lack of visibility into inventory in transit, delivery delays, and quality issues. Excessive stock at partners is costly for brand owners as it can lead to price protection payouts, product returns and write-offs, and the inability to sell other products. Yet, brand owners want to make sure partners have enough inventory to meet end-customer demand.

Poor visibility and limited control over stock levels at partner locations

Better visibility for better decisions

Monitor demand and inventory and collaborate with partners to optimize replenishment by leveraging a powerful combination of visibility, analytics, exception management, and process automation. Multiple sell-side vendor-managed inventory (VMI) models are supported.

Having visibility to the supply chain gives us and our suppliers the opportunity to plan. We talk about planning its capacity, its resources, its material—and it helps with the cost as well by having all those elements tied together.

We know what stock we have in the channel, is it healthy, what our average days of stock are, do we ship in more or do we reduce what we are shipping? We are really in control of channel data.
