Based upon our past history with districts of all sizes, the first year following inventory management software implementation identifies and maintains a stop-loss scenario. Districts have found that the following years represent the maximum opportunity for ongoing recovered losses, and they attribute these savings to improved tracking. Below, year one assumes a 15% loss reduction, year two assumes a 40% loss reduction, and then every year thereafter assumes a 50% loss reduction.

These savings can be achieved with the right people, the right processes, and the right tool providing you with accurate inventory information. Creating a complete inventory management program across an organization helps you accelerate time to value, mitigate risk, and achieve better ROI.

Below, check out a list of policies and tools that can contribute to the savings you see above.
