The Importance of Improving Store Inventory Accuracy

Retail stores are quickly becoming the center of the omnichannel experience. With increasing demand for store fulfillment offerings like buy online, pickup in-store, greater store inventory accuracy is critical. When a customer purchases an item through a digital channel with a promise that it will be ready for in-store pick up, that inventory must be in stock. If not, the retailer has probably lost a sale ­– or worse, a customer.

The fluid environment of retail stores often creates poor store inventory accuracy – as low as 60 percent. And that is before the pressures of store fulfillment. For any retailer leveraging their stores for ecommerce orders, improving store inventory accuracy is paramount to delivering on the omnichannel promise to customers.
