To our friends and visitors, Over the past several months, most of us have experienced great disruptions in our lives. This has included nearly all aspects of inventory management and supply chain planning in nearly every business and organization. We are recognizing new patterns of product demand as we work with our clients. Some of these trends will be permanent, some temporary, and others will evolve over time. In many instances, replenishment practices have also needed to be revised. We are in the process of updating our forecasting and replenishment models, policies and procedures so that they will be effective in this new reality. Our newsletter contains an original article by Jon that addresses how your organization can continue to achieve effective inventory management in a changing world. You can sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of any page on our website. Take care and stay safe.
