Software for Inventory Management & Inventory Optimization
INCREASE DELIVERY AVAILABILITIES TO NEARLY 100 %
The goal of inventory optimization is to achieve an optimal balance between high item availability and low inventory levels. A classic ERP system often reaches its limits in this respect. INFORM has developed specialized add-on software for inventory management that uses AI-powered, high-performance forecasting and algorithms to help you improve your company's supply chain in a sustainable way.

- Save costs and avoid supply bottlenecks through effective inventory planning
A well-stocked warehouse ensures high readiness to deliver but entails high logistics costs and tied capital. In contrast, a shortage of stock results in lower costs, but increases the risk of delivery bottlenecks and, thus, jeopardizes customer satisfaction.
Reconciling low inventory levels with consistently high readiness to deliver is the task of effective inventory management. Whilst sounding simple, in practice it presents companies with major challenges:
Inventory Management in Trade & Retail
Wholesale companies face the challenge of responding ever faster to fluctuating demand. Customer service requirements and cost pressure are both on the rise.
Therefore, to ensure sufficient availability while considering cost factors is a core function in technical trade, trade with consumer goods and in retail. Hence, it is essential to ensure an effective inventory management.
Inventory optimization in manufacturing
The most important goal of manufacturing companies is to achieve and maintain high readiness to deliver to the customer, combined with optimized lead times, storage, and resource utilization of production capacities.
However, market-related sales fluctuations, supplier-related risks and a large production depth make efficient materials management more difficult. The assumption that high inventories guarantee for smooth production and a high level of delivery service is still widespread - but in times of increasing cost pressure, it is no longer a viable solution.
Spare parts management is often referred to as the supreme discipline of logistics and plays a crucial role in successful after-sales service. The challenge here is to prevent expensive downtime, while keeping an eye on inventory costs. Sporadic demand for maintenance components that is difficult to predict represents an additional challenge.
- Inventory management software for optimized SCM processes
Classic ERP and merchandise planning and control systems with their conventional forecasting and scheduling functionalities are overburdened with these requirements. A specialized solution for inventory optimization ideally should support SCM processes through intelligent decisions made by high-performance artificial intelligence. Furthermore, it should be provided by a partner who understands your procurement and production processes.
ADD*ONE from INFORM is the software for intelligent inventory management in trade and industry. It works on the basis of AI-supported, powerful forecast procedures and optimization algorithms. Connectivity with your existing setup is ensured by the smooth connection to SAP, e. g.
