Business value

A holistic and visualized view of inventory that is updated in near real time enables supply and inventory managers to prepare the right level of stock to service all customers on time. It also lets sales representatives query inventory availability immediately upon customer inquiry. A logistics manager can also use the Inventory Visibility Add-in dashboard to investigate worrisome key performance indicator (KPI) values and take mitigation measures before it's too late.

Feature details

The Inventory Visibility Add-in dashboard lets business users (such as supply chain planners, inventory managers, and sales clerks) view inventory quantity and status across data sources, legal entities, locations, and channels, with a quick, wholistic overview. It enables users to do the following:

  • Set up and filter on inventory dimensions to focus on the regions and products you care about most.
  • Identify stock out, understock, and overstock products for timely inventory replenishment or reduction.
  • Compare allocated and consumed quantities to decide whether an allocation top-up is needed (for example, to support a promotion or campaign).
  • View inventory KPIs (such as on-hand quantity, supply, and demand) into the near future so that inventory trend risks can be mitigated before it's too late.

Inventory Visibility

Inventory Visibility provides an independent and highly scalable microservice that enables real-time, on-hand inventory change postings and visibility tracking across all your data sources and channels. For more information about Inventory Visibility, see the Inventory Visibility Add-in overview.
