On today’s episode, I’m chatting with Jill Liliedahl, Business Development Manager from Inventory Planner. It’s an incredible time and money optimizing solution that puts you in charge of your inventory. Sales forecasting does sound sexy but it helps to anticipate your customer demand and it’s a way to see what trends are happening in your business.

You can view all of your sales trends and inventory needs in one place. Control what products to replenish at each warehouse and for all sales channels and marketplaces. Powerful insights put you in control of your inventory. It even helps you to identify overstock to help you free up needed cash by clearing out stock that is not moving.

The Inventory Planner platform will allow you to take the necessary time to review your store’s inventory data, compare product lines, brands, and suppliers to see financial trends in your business.

What You Will Learn Today…

  • How sales forecasting can help your business
  • What makes a good forecast
  • Learn how to handle forecasting for multiple sales channels or locations
  • How seasonality can affect sales forecasting
  • Considerations when dealing with several different suppliers
  • How the 80-20 rule applies to inventory planning and demand
