MDM Guest Post: Consigned Inventory Doesn’t Have to Be a Nightmare

Many distributors resist offering consigned inventory; the challenges of managing that inventory at a customer’s site is one of the most common reasons for that reluctance. It’s true that managing consigned inventory can be a nightmare, but with the right customers and products, and smart planning, it can also be a dream come true.

It’s also vital to manage consigned inventory with an automated replenishment system – when consigned inventory management is done manually there are too many opportunities for error. But when distributors manage it with an automated replenishment mobile app, same-customer revenues can increase by up to 30 percent.

Using technology to manage consigned inventory also increases accountability at the customer location, providing greater peace of mind for the distributor.
