Efficiency is always in stock here at Maplewave.

What if your retail inventory management system was smart enough to know what to order, and did it for you?

Supply is Maplewave’s inventory tracking and product lifecycle management module. It is specifically designed to address the lifecycle volatility of wireless products through comprehensive supply chain visibility and controls. Where cellular phones are often sold at a loss and later reimbursed, it’s imperative that retail inventory management provides a reliable method for forecasting and decision-making.

The lifecycle of all serialized inventory from manufacturers (including handsets and SIMs) is tracked across all movements — making stock management a much easier process. Unit cost, receipt dates, location, status, selling price, profit, return information and all clerk involvement are stored based on serial number. Complete unit history visibility provides for more accurate financial reporting while supporting fraud prevention initiatives.

Supply provides comprehensive retail inventory management at the store level, enabling store staff to easily check stock availability, complete purchase order management and utilise inventory tracking tools.

Supply Benefits

Supply Meets Demand

The real-time flow of information will ensure that in-store supply aligns with the actual demand, eliminating speculation-based forecasting.

Optimized Stock Levels

Accurate forecasting significantly reduces “out-of-stock” situations, the overstocking of not-in-demand items and improves in-store space allocation.

Improved Revenue Performance

Improved product lifecycle management reduces markdowns and investment in old stock. Detailed inventory tracking decreases inventory shrinkage.

Inventory Automation

The automation of inventory calculations and reduction in turnaround times for purchase orders gives management the time to focus on maximizing business performance.
