Increase Fill Rates While Reducing Inventories with Sales and Operations Planning

If you are like most companies in the shooting sports industry, you have more product than you planned on right now and demand is slow.  You probably have many ‘excuses’ on why inventory is high, but the more appropriate answer is you probably don’t have a refined sales and operations planning process.  

NASGW along with Growth Strategy Partners is going to help you with this challenge by presenting Sales and Operations Planning 101:  How to balance supply and demand.  This one hour webinar will be on June 22 from 1:00 to 2:00PM eastern. 

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What is S&OP?
  • How to get your leadership team to commit to implementing S&OP
  • How do companies reduce inventories yet increase on-time deliveries?
  • What is the role of sales, operations, and finance? How to get started

Date: June 22
