One of our clients, Aquatic AV, reduced its inventory holding by over $1 million and improved its customer fill rate from 79-99%.

Aquatic AV works with more than one hundred manufacturers worldwide to provide waterproof audio-visual equipment. They distribute their products to over 700 authorized dealers, including marine, power sports, and motorcycle companies.

Aquatic AV is a relatively small business but customers in various industries and locations. Their products range from raw materials to finished goods. Their legacy ERP couldn’t keep up with their growth and the complexity of their requirements. So, they switched to Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC.

The challenges

But, there were challenges. They were using spreadsheets and Dynamics 365 BC’s basic reports to manage inventory. Because they owned multiple global warehouses and some products were seasonal, they needed a more customized approach. Implementing Netstock helped them gain complete visibility of their inventory, and they could drill into their individual warehouse figures as well as their combined inventory.

As is true for many organizations recently, Aquatic AV had trouble getting product components. Lead times were long, and in panic, customers ordered larger quantities or sometimes substituted products. Integrating input from their sales team and Netstock reporting helped them adjust forecasts accordingly. Skewed sales data would have been a problem. Their data needed to be transparent and reliable. They found they could trust the data Netstok generated.
