Manufacturer Selects GPS Proven Cost Effective Exit Strategy for Slow Moving Inventory


Manufacturer Selects GPS Proven Cost Effective Exit Strategy for Slow Moving Inventory

Based upon an analysis of their inventory, a manufacturer of construction machinery identified a large amount of slow moving parts that had sporadic, unpredictable usage. Through their analysis they discovered that the inventory carrying costs for this portion of their inventory far outweighed any future profits. Plus, these slow moving parts were negatively affecting their overall inventory turns and occupied a large number of warehouse locations.

However, the manufacturer also understood the need to provide long term customer service and consequently the need to continue to have immediate access to these parts. Their brand integrity and their image in the market place must be maintained for their dealer organization and future product sales.

GPS Inventory Solutions presented its Inventory Bank programs that offered cost effective solutions that either reduced or eliminated their overhead and inventory costs while still providing a high level product support.

The manufacturer selected the Shared Profits Inventory Bank program as they were confident that it would provide the cost savings that they needed, along with the immediate availability of these slow moving parts to their dealer network. Freeing up warehouse space was a major bonus.

How the GPS Shared Profits Inventory Bank works for slower moving inventory:

  • GPS obtains ownership of inventory -  OEM write off required
  • GPS relocates, warehouses, manages, and distributes the inventory
  • No storage or transaction fees apply
  • OEM refers Dealers to GPS Inventory Bank for product needs
  • Dealers have easy 24/7 online access to GPS database for checking item availability
  • Excellent customer service
  • Same day shipments available – All orders shipped within 24 hours
  • GPS pays OEM rewards for allowing visibility in its system and dealer referrals

  • Brand and market integrity protected
