How To Organize, Regulate And Tighten Inventory Control In The Warehouse
A One-Day Seminar
Dates/Locations, Pricing
Meeting Code: KTI

You can’t afford to have one glitch in your system because inventory is company money. If deliveries come in late or employees don’t follow the correct procedures for reporting damaged merchandise, that’s money down the drain.

You’ve done everything humanly possible to sidestep problems in your inventory control system. If you’re like most warehouse managers, you’ve even rolled up your sleeves, gotten your hands dirty and gone in for a closer look.

There are 1001 places a serious mistake can happen in a warehouse. Unlike most managers and supervisors who only have to handle paperwork, you have to keep track of all the paperwork, plus physical inventory ... orders ... deliveries ... and much more.

That’s a lot resting on your shoulders. One wrong number on an order form or one pallet of misplaced stock can set up an expensive chain of events that you get blamed for.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could tell where trouble is brewing in your warehouse and stop it in its tracks?

You can. Attend this seminar, designed for warehouse managers — like you — who want to plug up potential weak spots before a costly error happens ... streamline recordkeeping responsibilities ... and cut down on shrinkage.

When you put these strategies to work, you’ll be amazed at how much more smoothly your warehouse runs. Plus, you’ll know that both the physical and the paper-pushing sides of inventory control are up and running at optimum efficiency.
