Inventory Management

Inventory Management is a key part of Freshworks’ strategy. Inventory Management is the supervision of non-capitalised assets and stock items. The primary aim of inventory management is to offer accurate, comprehensive and current information regarding the current location and status of every critical item in the inventory. It includes the following:

  • Inventory visibility and valuation

  • Lead times for replenishment of raw materials and finished goods

  • Returns of defective goods and materials

  • Management of available physical space

  • Management of ordering, shipping, handling and carrying costs

  • Forecasting of future prices, inventory levels and demand

Freshworks shares its best practice to achieve success in Inventory Management:

  • Bring your leadership on board

  • Know what you have

  • Categorise

  • Prioritise

  • Choose your management method

  • Choose your deployment method

  • Plan

  • Clean your data

  • Automate

  • Simplify

  • Integrate

  • Learn from others

  • Empower

  • Partner

Why is Inventory Management important?

An effective Inventory Management strategy can do lots more than just track inventory across the supply chain. It can also identify missing or malfunctioning inventory and replace it as efficiently as possible. Inventory Management provides information to help businesses which of its products account for the most sales and track those changes across different seasons throughout the year. Effective Inventory Management also allows for better relationships to be formed with other areas of the supply chain, as it will ultimately provide a better working understanding and enable fewer mistakes to be made.
