Managing and Preventing Obsolete Inventory is brought to you by Lorman
Learn to identify the old inventory and create an action plan to get rid of it.
Obsolete inventories are a dangerous thing for most businesses, especially retail businesses, because they tie up capital unnecessarily, and create a bad impression for customers when they see the same old thing, day after day. And while every business that maintains inventory will always have some degree of obsolete inventory, learning how to identify, remove, and mitigate future obsolete inventories is of paramount importance. By establishing the parameters by which you can measure what the obsolete inventory is, you can easily identify it, take action to get rid of it, and then analyze the causes of the obsolete inventory, so that it does not continue to consume capital, space, and time.
