Inventory availability is a NON-ISSUE if it’s managed properly.
Chapter 3 of my book goes over inventory availability in detail.
Have you ever called to order something only to learn it’s out of stock?
Have you substantially paid more because your normal supplier didn’t have it? It must be frustrating for you.
A properly managed inventory by your supplier will eliminate this pain for you.
Do you have a non-standard item that’s a problem every time you order it? Maybe that’s a good item to start with a managed inventory on.
I’d encourage you to put a program in place to eliminate this. Maybe you should ask yourself, why isn’t my supplier already doing that or proposing the idea? That’s a good question.
Chapter 3 of my book:
