Manufacturers Look to Improve Inventory Performance According to Ultriva by Upland

Ultriva by Upland, the leader in cloud-based collaborative supply chain solutions, reported that after five years of anemic economic recovery, manufacturers continue to add inventory to their books much faster than GDP growth. In order to better manage inventory levels while still ensuring the right part is in the right place at the right time, manufacturers are increasingly relying on advanced information management solutions.

Further, inventory turns – which indicate whether the supply chain is getting more efficient at moving goods from suppliers to customers – have declined steadily since 2011. PwC and MAPI surveyed senior executives from 75 global manufacturers (with U.S. headquarters) to better understand this decline in inventory performance and polled respondents on the effectiveness and benefits of using advanced inventory data management strategies to reduce inventory.

Nandu Gopalun with Ultriva by Upland recently shared some of the benefits of effective real-time information management solutions.  He noted, “Real-time information helps to ensure correct scheduling; planners and buyers are able to plan components accurately.”
