More on Optimizing Inventory Management


We had a lot of interest in our recent Optimizing Inventory Management webinar, so I wanted to follow up with some of our in-session poll results and additional resources.

If you missed it, Stuart Langer (Blytheco VP of Sales, CPA, and adjunct professor at Oglethorpe University) reviewed strategies for understanding various inventory replenishment approaches with the goal of minimizing inventory costs while keeping service levels high.

The post-event survey revealed a lot of interest in hosting a “Part Two” of the “Optimizing Inventory Management” webinar. We’re happy to oblige! The second webinar of the series will delve deeper into useful tools for managing inventory and further explore advanced topics of supply chain management. We’re definitely looking forward to hosting Part Two next quarter!

For the webinar schedule and additional resources, including a recording of the session and white papers about managing inventory, visit our Resources page.

For attendees and others interested in learning more about the Basics of Accounting, check out Stuart’s “Basics of Enterprise Accounting” recorded webinar series.
