How to Organize Regulate and Tighten Inventory Control in the Warehouse On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Learn how to identify — and solve — pesky problems with employee performance . . . shrinkage . . . cycle counts . . . and much more.

Course Description/Agenda

can’t afford to have one glitch in your system
because inventory is company money. If deliveries
come in late or employees don’t follow the correct
procedures for reporting damaged merchandise, that’s
money down the drain.

You’ve done everything humanly possible to
sidestep problems in your inventory-control system.
If you’re like most warehouse managers, you’ve even
rolled up your sleeves, gotten your hands dirty and
gone in for a closer look.

There are 1,001 places a serious mistake can
happen in a warehouse. Unlike most managers and
supervisors who only have to handle paperwork, you
have to keep track of all the paperwork, plus
physical inventory ... orders ... deliveries ... and
much more.

That’s a lot resting on your shoulders. One wrong
number on an order form or one pallet of misplaced
stock can set up an expensive chain of events for
which you get blamed.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could tell where
trouble is brewing in your warehouse and stop it in
its tracks?

You can. Attend this seminar designed for
warehouse managers — like you — who want to plug up
potential weak spots before a costly error happens
... streamline record-keeping responsibilities ...
and cut down on shrinkage.

When you put these strategies to work, you’ll be
amazed at how much more smoothly your warehouse
runs. Plus, you’ll know that both the physical and
the paper-pushing sides of inventory control are up
and running at optimum efficiency.

What You'll


Have you ever ...

  • Lost a customer because you thought you had
    more merchandise on hand than you really did?

  • Taken a loss because damaged merchandise
    hadn’t been documented?

  • Had to deal with delivery people who fouled
    up your schedule by being consistently late?

Come to this seminar and learn how to sidestep these
and other barriers to a first-rate inventory-control
