Building A Better System
In a manufacturing or retail business, auditing inventory will be the first pain point we uncover utilizing your Over purchasing product for your retail that’s dated or has perished. Inventory for production that is unusable due to branding changes or printed details that cannot be reused. Lack of proper warehouse management software. Poor inventory accounting practices and often personnel changes can lead to your cash being tied up in inventory.

That notwithstanding, this is where Protea shines. We’ll build a process of accounting for inventory and helping you hold your teams accountable for judicious buying, selling and utilization of hard goods that otherwise will be taking up space and tying up your cash.
No Stone Unturned
Creating a system to count bin by bin, sku by sku requires manpower, time and resources that are difficult to allocate if not already built into your monthly accounting processes. But, if you want to find what’s draining your cash, inventory is the first place to look.
