How "Green" is Your Inventory Planning?

Posted on Tue, Apr 05,2011@02:33 PM

Inventory planning is more than simply having the right amount of stock on the shelf. With proper planning, the whole business is positively affected: from the planning to the bottom line. For companies with large inventories, 10,000+ items, manual planning and replenishment techniques like spreadsheets can be very time-consuming and are riddled with errors. Automated inventory planning and optimization solutions save time, money and computing resources, which contribute to “Green” IT. Web-based planning solutions can be deployed either on-premise or in a SaaS model, adding another layer of “Green” IT.

How “Green” is your IT? IBM partnered with Aberdeen Research to develop a web-based tool which in less than 10 minutes, will:

  • Compare your company's approach to common Green IT challenges with industry best practices

  • Receive best practice recommendations that you can put to immediate use

  • Receive ROI estimate based on your company's performance based on upgrading to a best in class approach

  • Access additional resources based on your specific needs
