Inventory Surplus!!! Need for some advices!!!
« on: February 23, 2013, 09:47:26 AM »
Hi there!
We have the following problem and hope to find some experts for this game!
We just started this game and made a wrong estimation for Asia Pacific and thus have 1.400 shoes, which are left in inventory.
The expenses for these shoes are massive, thus we want to sell them asap.
But all scenarios we tried so far, showed really bad scoring measures...
The operation margin by doing an inventory clearance are always negative (25,50,75%...)
Did you had such a problem before?
If yes, what would you advice us?
Would be really great to hear back from some more experienced players!
All best

An over surplus of inventory is a very real danger in the game, and yes in fact it is a common prolem for companies who build too quickly. There isn't just one thing you can do, you have to tailor the strategy to push as many shoes out, and even then it doesn't mean your problem is going to be corrected.

I have seens 10k shoes in inventory before, and such degrading quality is even harder to manage. In this type of circumstance, it's best to email me directly and possibly have a diagnostic review done.
