Investment-Driven Approach

Our passion is to develop your replenishment buyers and planners into inventory investors. Blue Ridge’s investment-driven approach goes far beyond technical training; we work to educate users, to support learning … and ultimately to elevate the mindset and mission of your team. Through best-practice courses, online assessment, weekly correspondence and management sessions, we transform planners … buyers … replenishment professionals … into investors.

The idea of replenishment buyers becoming investors could be thought of as counter-intuitive, a paradox. Why? Because demand forecasting, inventory optimization and replenishment are traditionally thought of as “the other side of the business.” We’re convinced, after years of experience deploying solutions with dozens of companies that lead the supply-chain revolution, that quite the opposite is true. The possibilities hidden in these functions, once revealed, become instead a strategic, investment-driven part of the business with huge potential to impact the customer experience, and help a company make money.

Just as business owners wouldn’t hire clerks to manage their retirement accounts, neither should they take a tactical approach to the management of the largest use of cash in their businesses—their inventories.

Your replenishment team is charged with a huge responsibility—investing in inventory. They need the tools, knowledge and best practices to achieve:

  • High demand fulfillment levels that earn repeat business and a reputation of dependability
  • Inventory investment consistent with levels of demand to meet customer needs
  • Efficient, proven processes that sustain profitability regardless of variables
  • Productivity, consistency and reliability across all locations and users
