Why We Do It

Excess and obsolete inventory negatively impacts the profitability of OEM and EMS companies in several ways. Excess inventory ties up working capital, preventing the ability to apply that capital more strategically. Working capital that has been invested in inventory, especially any excess inventory, has a negative rate of return and the longer it sits without an exit strategy, the more diminishing returns can be expected.

It’s worth noting that excess inventory is usually sold off at large discounts. It’s not uncommon to see up to a 95% loss or write-off. This obviously has a negative impact on a company’s margin and, thus, its profitability.

Some of the largest brands in the world trust Partstat to manage and sell their excess inventory.
