Learn more about ECR Community Shrinkage & OSA Group's new research study on the problem of inventory record inaccuracy. The research aimed to answer three key questions:
During the study, researchers worked closely with seven retailers. The findings showed that 60% of inventory records are wrong and that when the inventory records are corrected that sales can increase by 4 - 8%.
As one of the retailer members of ECR shared, their board regularly pore over and inspect new ways to grow retail sales that most often require big investment and high risk, yet here we have new research that shows that by just improving the accuracy of their inventory records they can drive sales, with little risk and potentially, a low level of investment.
The webinar will explore the research objectives and findings in more detail, and importantly, propose a number of interventions that retailers and manufacturers could consider and act upon. Following the presentation of the findings, Hannah Newton, Business Intelligence Manager for Tesco PLC, will share a retailer perspective on the findings, and implications for retailer organizations.
