Lunch & Learn One Hour Webinar: Hidden Costs of Inventory Spreadsheets
Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017 at 1:00PM CT/2:00PM ET

Ultra Consultants and NETSTOCK invite you to a Lunch & Learn Webinar all about inventory management. Gaining operational efficiency and driving costs out of the organization is a consistent goal for most manufacturing companies, but it is not always easy to achieve.

Many inventory-based businesses plan their replenishment using spreadsheets, largely because it’s a solution that’s cheap, easy, and readily available. Despite its popularity, using a spreadsheet as an inventory replenishment planning tool comes with hidden costs.

There are limits when working with standalone spreadsheets. A spreadsheet cannot maintain the complexities and best practices necessary in supply chain management.
