What does success look like in supply chain management? It’s having the right things, in the right quantity, in the right place, at the right time, handled as few times as possible using the least amount of space and the fewest resources possible. To improve supply chain success, one large institution underwent a change for excellence by merging and reorganizing departments. Grainger KeepStock® Inventory Management solutions was a big part of their success by having direct delivery to their custodial closets and having Grainger staff onsite at their stores. This resulted in process improvement savings, reduced inventory and stockouts, and lower transaction costs.

One large university underwent a change for excellence. This involved merging and reorganizing departments and implementing Grainger KeepStock® Inventory Management solutions to help them get the right products, at the right time, right where they were needed. The results show process improvement savings, reduced inventory and stockouts, and lower transaction costs.
