Optimize Spend with Inventory Visibility


As low inventory levels increase the risk of stock outs, any excess inventory can greatly impact working capital. To eliminate unnecessary spend, organizations must automate replenishment processes and connect buyer and supplier communities with accurate forecasts, inventory on-hand, and shipment information.

Prevent Stock Outs or Build Ups

Ivalua’s Inventory Collaboration Solution prevents redundant spend by providing visibility into available inventory, preventing excess stock and timing replenishment. Buyers can share forecasted demand and inventory needs with suppliers and collaborate to optimize fulfillment and improve order accuracy. Inventory collaboration is the ultimate way to improve efficiency and optimize spend.
