Inventory Matters. Operating Costs Are Key.

Wholesale distributors you buy products from manufacturers then move the product from their operations to companies that either want to resell the products to end users or use them in their own operations. So then, inventory matters. Operating costs are key. How much space do you need? Has your product costs gone up? The distribution and wholesale industries rely on inventory management, buying structure and customers willing to buy your product.

And then there is always the right amount of staffing. Turning Point builds custom, detailed plans to manage your business and help you with cash management.
