Stock Availability: How to Manage and Improve with Kinator

Download PDF


In the fast-paced world of eCommerce, staying ahead of the curve means mastering the art of inventory management. Synchronising stock availability with growing sales trends isn’t just a best practice—it’s a necessity. Imagine the horror of an eager customer clicking “buy” only to discover their desired product is out of stock. In this game of milliseconds and mouse clicks, such a mishap can tarnish your brand’s reputation faster than you can say “restock.”

Today’s customers are spoiled for choice, with alternatives just a few searches away. So, how do you keep them hooked on your brand? By keeping an eye on stock levels, customer reviews, pricing strategies, and real-time tracking. This is where our channel intelligence steps in as a robust stock availability management tool that provides real-time updates and forecasts industry trends, ensuring you’re always one step ahead.

Importance of Stock Availability 

Ensuring widespread availability across different zip codes, retailers, and channel partners is essential for sales and conversions. Overlooking these parameters can damage your brand’s image. Understocking indicates a failure to understand and adapt to trends, often due to inaccurate analysis.

On the other hand, overstocking is feasible for brands to prevent stock issues, but it is not. It is misleading and negatively impacts the business in terms of revenues, margins, and product shrinkages, ultimately resulting in more wastage. 

Another surfacing challenge is meeting customer expectations. Showing the product available on the website for the sake of sales but delaying shipping due to its unavailability leaves customers disappointed, as their funds remain tied up without receiving the desired product. This digital shelf analytics tool helps you track inventory in real-time and provide a satisfactory customer experience through various strategies. 

Let’s explore how Paxcom helped a global brand boost its sales by optimizing stock availability with Kinator by 94%.
