This inconsistency in product availability impacted customer satisfaction and led to lost sales opportunities and increased carrying costs. Seeking a solution to improve their in-stock percentage and streamline inventory management, Ridgerock Tools turned to ForecastRx, an advanced forecasting and inventory optimization platform.
