IBS Australia will be a Gold sponsor of the GS1 Impetus Expo 2008, to be held from 23rd to 24th October 2008 at the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne. In line with the theme of the event – “Insight, Innovations, Implementation” – IBS has launched a series of “How-To” guides to optimise inventory and maximise profits, titled “The Essential 5-Step Guide To Inventory Optimisation”.

By sponsoring Impetus 2008, IBS confirms its commitment as a GS1 Australia Strategic Alliance Partner and to supporting global standards and best practices in supply chain implementation.

Narelle Behn-Carey, Vice-President Marketing for IBS Australia, explains why IBS has chosen to sponsor the Impetus Expo 2008:

“IBS is the only major international ERP software provider to have fully dedicated solutions for industries such as the electrical products, pharmaceutical, publishing and automotive, among other industries in wholesale and distribution. We want to make sure we continue to develop our products in line with the actual trends, challenges and requirements of global supply chain standards and best practices. By sponsoring the GS1 Impetus Expo, we will be involved first hand with the concerns and requirements of the industry and build this information into our on-going research and development programs.”

“The Essential 5-Step Guide To Inventory Optimisation” is a “How-To” guide based on IBS’ Inventory Optimisation Methodology, to help inventory/supply chain managers get the right product, at the right time, in the right place. The series includes:

Step 1:The case for inventory optimisation – How to balance inventory levels and lower costs

Step 2: How to analyse your inventory performance

Step 3: How to classify your products and define your strategy

Step 4: How to calculate your product forecast

Step 5: How to optimise your product replenishment

The Executive Summary and registration for the 5-step series is available at or call 1300 882 467.

The series is a lead-up to IBS Australia’s FREE presentation by Peter Clarke, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for IBS Asia Pacific, at the Impetus Expo Supply Chain Tech Theatrette on Thursday, 23rd October, 2.00-2.30pm. The topic of Peter’s presentation is “The Secret to Maximising Your ROI and Profits By Optimising Inventory”.

Peter Clarke, CTO for IBS Asia Pacific, says:

“IBS always looks to fully understand how various industries are reacting and responding to the challenges that political and economic forces place on the global supply chain. Balancing your inventory is often very challenging... Overstocking and understocking affects your ability to manage your supply chain. Optimising your inventory provides the highest and fastest return on your investment. With this in mind, we develop our ERP software solutions to work in tandem with needs of the business, and provide all the essential functionality and support that wholesalers/distributors need to meet the demands of the global supply chain.

This event will help to ensure our investment in product development is continually spent on achieving real benefits and added value to our customers, as it always has been, and to raise the overall profile of IBS within the industry.”
