Out of Stock Prevention

Retail – Out of Stock Prevention

Imagine if you had advance notice of potential out-of-stock situations, and were able to get the right product to the right place in time!

Understocking doesn’t just lead to lost sales opportunities; it can even lead customers to your competitors. According to P&G reports, one in 13 items that a customer wants to buy won’t be on the shelf when they’re ready to buy it. Not only does this result in lost sales of about 4%, but also additional losses in brand perception and customer satisfaction. It’s vital that retailers maintain optimal stock levels to protect sales.
