New Inventory and FBA Replenishment Tool Gives Sellers Unprecedented Visibility and Control

inventory replenishment

Not carrying enough high-demand stock costs you sales. Carrying too much low-demand stock ties up capital. Etail Solutions' newly released inventory and FBA replenishment feature solves this problem once and for all by calculating what, when, and how much to order - so you always have what your customers want and not what they don't.

Replenishment adds Min/Max and Dynamic Planning capabilities to our industry-leading Multi-Channel Management Platform - the Etail Vantage Platform (EVP). EVP takes sales history across all sales channels along with demand profile data to generate a projected demand for a particular product. EVP then takes into consideration existing purchase orders and current warehouse inventory to estimate a date and quantity for reorder so you can avoid experiencing a loss in sales resulting from stock outs.

Replenishment represents product capabilities that do not exist in most other Multi-Channel Management Platforms. It helps eliminate stock-outs because it provides a forward looking view that suggests ahead of time when you need to re-order certain products. Plus, it creates an increased revenue opportunity by allowing you to manage a larger catalog of items without increasing your office structure.
