Smart inventory planning for a healthy cash flow


Watch our inventory planning webinar recording now to see how a data-driven inventory demand planner can help release capital tied up in inventory without compromising sales growth.


Having healthy cash flowing into a business is critical for its survival and growth. Unfortunately, a number of different factors can impact cash flow negatively and make it difficult to get through hard times or invest in a growth plan. If you’re feeling this type of pain currently, optimizing the cost hold in your inventory is the perfect place to start, with nearly 70% of cash often tied up in inventory.

The key is to ensure the right balance between having enough stock that meets customer demand but not having too much inventory on products that aren’t moving. To achieve that, you need full visibility into your inventory performance. That’s where an intelligent, data-driven inventory planning system comes in. Based on historical inventory performance, know if too much cash is carried in inventory, where to reduce inventory cost, and how much inventory is needed to grow sales.

In this 25-minute webinar, we'll cover:

  • The impact of inventory on cash flow
  • Key KPIs used in inventory demand planning
  • How Brightpearl’s inventory demand planner supports healthy cash flow
  • Q&A
