Inventory Management helps balance supply with demand in consumer-driven supply chains. Inventory is one of the largest capital investments every business makes and it’s integral to successful end-to-end supply chain planning software implementations. That’s why savvy supply chain professionals partner with John Galt to configure inventory planning software that effectively plans their inventory while meeting customer demand, and ultimately optimizing their inventory investment.
