KPI’s for Order and Inventory Management

Order and Inventory Management KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) should be a vital part of your systems and operations. They can really help to highlight areas of your business where there are problems and opportunities for improvement.

We’d recommend around 20-25 KPIs, which together cover all aspects of your business, from customer acquisition and retention, right through the Inventory management and purchasing.
