Earlier versions of inventory tracking involved single-stage calculations done by hand and tracked individual items based on location. This was an inefficient practice and was almost impossible to attain true visibility across large supply chains. There was an increasing need for automated solutions that could optimize and reimagine inventory management. These solutions needed to be able to address the need for product availability but at the same time, deal with the need to minimize stock holdings and handling costs.
Technological advancements have made improved and innovative management systems possible.
