Our offer > Working Capital Efficiency

In this economic crisis context, companies have focused on their Working Capital to generate cash and avoid bankruptcy. One of the most common measure is inventory reduction along the Supply Chain.

  • How to operate this reduction without jeopardizing product availability?
  • What stock management policies will ensure that the right product is at the right place at the right time?
  • Is my inventory made up of the appropriate components?

That's why it is important to work on the Customers & Suppliers Interface:  

  • How to charge as early as possible while protecting myself against late payments?
