Balancing Inventory without the Burden

We know that overstocking to prevent stockouts results in excessive inventory costs and reduced cash flow. A just-in-time delivery model solves this problem, but only if it's manageable.

That's where the challenge—and our solution—begins.

Simplifying Complex Processes

Manual backorder management is not only time-consuming but prone to errors, often leading to delayed customer shipments. Your time is valuable and should be focused on growing your business, not getting tangled in the complexities of backorder management.

This realization is at the heart of what we do.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

When we use the term backorder, we mean a sales order line that is not fulfillable based on available stock at the time of the sale. A backorder gets covered by a purchase order, and released by a positive inventory event (most likely a purchase order receipt).
