How can IBM Inventory Visibility help my business?

How can IBM Sterling Inventory Visibility help my business?

Fulfillment and inventory managers don’t always have visibility into accurate inventory levels. This leads to lost sales, customers aggravated by overpromising, giving away margin due to markdowns and expedited shipping charges, carrying excess safety stock and limited ability to enter new sales channels.

IBM® Sterling Inventory Visibility enables up-to-the-minute inventory tracking and accurate available-to-promise data, even in businesses with high volumes and many SKUs. The cloud-based solution is demand-sensing and scales automatically without IT assistance. It integrates easily with your existing order management or ERP system as well as new sales channels.
