“When you’re a planner, you just want to get it right, because everything in the company really revolves around the inventory. If the inventory is not right, the salespeople are not happy. The CFO is not happy because it’s in the wrong stuff and it’s the cost of carrying inventory. The warehouse guy isn’t happy because he’s got a lot of stuff and it’s not moving, and he can’t fill the orders. So, inventory is really central to a company and very important,” Audrey Walby, founder and CEO of SAFIO Solutions said.
Walby knows the importance of inventory management from experience.
She spent decades as an award-winning planner for some of the nation’s most recognized brands. Walby attributes much of her success to a software program she developed that combines sales forecasting, inventory management, and sales analysis.
