- A contract supplier uses Stockpile Reports for production tracking to reduce inventory errors. The customer started by measuring inventory daily for a month and found 40% of production was being categorized incorrectly, an annualized difference worth $3.6M
- A distributor with rail-served terminals uses Stockpile Reports to early-identify inventory losses and isolate root causes on inbound volumes. The customer increased inventory measurement frequency from monthly to a daily at a high-volume site to assess internal processes. The variances ranged from 8 to 27%, with multiple sources of material shortages including moisture loss, bill of lading errors, and rail car leakage. The customer has modified internal controls with a goal of reducing inventory variances by $5M to within 5%.
- A rock, sand and gravel producer uses Stockpile Reports to identify and reduce inventory variances. An improvement on original losses of 15% was stabilized to a rate of 3% on 3M tons measured monthly, a $30M annual recovery.
- A metropolitan city recently used Stockpile Reports to complete an inventory (interior sheds and outdoor piles). The inventory had not been comprehensively measured in decades. In 3 days, Stockpile Reports successfully measured 350,000 tons across 31 piles in 19 complex urban locations with a street value of $35M. Variances from public records were as high as 40%. Pile challenges, including runoff and compaction, were identified to drive action and improve purchasing strategies.
- A large governmental agency had been stockpiling bulk materials due to the fear of running out and was able to achieve a 25% reduction in on-hand inventory by verifying inventory, allowing $30M in taxpayer funds to be reallocated to other projects.
