Collaborative Inventory Management

Excess inventory in multi-tier supply networks can result in high carrying costs and the risk of obsolescence. E2open’s Inventory Collaboration application provides visibility into materials at all nodes in your network, enabling contract manufacturers and suppliers to proactively manage shortages and excesses across multiple inventory management models. The result is lower safety stock requirements, carrying costs and working capital liability.
