A systemic project to reduce inventories and eliminate depleted stocks, while ensuring, and furthermore, increasing Availability.

Let yourself be guided by our exclusive business model to answer:

What, when and how much to buy / replenish? 

A manufacturing plant, and also a Distribution company, be it wholesaler, retailer or retail store, bases its operating model on the use of consumption forecasts for the programming of operations / purchases, where there are symptoms that can generally be described as :

  • High level of back-orders (delayed or incomplete orders)

    • Decreasing service level

  • Poor inventory levels at different service points

    • Decreasing Inventory Turns 

    • Increasing losses

  • Surpluses of some products (usually those with low turnover)

    • Reducing liquidity due to high inventory that does not move.

    • Avoiding the replenishment of urgent products due to liquidity problems.

    • Increasing the level of obsolescence.

  • Shortages from other products (usually high turnover)

    • Increased costs and expenses for urgent purchases.

    • Increasing the level of stress and tension by managing emergencies.

    • Decreasing service level

    • Decreasing the reputation of good availability.

    • Forcing urgent dispatches between warehouses or service points.

  • Increased expenses for cross shipments

    • Although there are often excesses in other areas of the company.


Faced with these challenges and problems, at SpearHead we have a business solution that we present for your consideration:

  • Significantly reduce inventories in the supply chain while increasing availability:

    • By replacing the production and / or logistics system from "push" to "pull"

    • By synchronizing operations with a single priority system that operates according to actual market consumption.

  • Increase inventory returns at all levels of the distribution network:

    • By dynamically syncing and controlling inventories to maintain correct levels across all locations.

  • Synchronize production and / or logistics systems to replenish what is necessary to maintain correct inventory levels: 

    • Providing manufacturing / logistics operations with the correct information to make decisions and coordinate tasks.

  • Reduce costs and expenses (freeing up liquidity) in logistics management:

    • By having visibility of the entire distribution system and reacting dynamically and quickly to replace only the inventories consumed.
