How Hydrian helped BBQGuys double their business in 18 months

INVENTORY OPTIMIZATION STARTS WITH SETTING THE RIGHT GOALS

Many businesses find themselves with too much capital invested in inventory and yet too few items in stock in the right locations. Fixing this isn’t simple, as the ideal levels of inventory investment and items in stock aren’t identical for every ecommerce business, and these must be weighed against labor costs and service expectations. We’ll develop multiple scenarios to help leadership find the perfect harmony between inventory investment, service level, and labor costs, then we’ll work with your team daily to reach those goals.

MULTI-ECHELON INVENTORY OPTIMIZATION FOR $440M NATIONAL PARTS DISTRIBUTOR

Inventory Challenges

We increased our inventory value by 20% with no measurable increase in fill rate. Nothing worked. Our system was not dynamic enough to keep up with changing sales volume, and we also didn’t have a good handle on how much to stock in each of our distribution centers. The result? Lost customers, chronic late deliveries, high shipping costs, high cancellation rates, and high return rates.

Why Hydrian?

  • Keeping current systems meant no new software investment and no delays
  • New reporting enabled quick adoption and tangible results
  • Rapid purchasing optimization created a dramatic spike in fill rates

Results

  • 55% reduction in stockouts in first 90 days
  • 70% internal freight savings due to reduced transfers
  • Fill rates jump to 98% (from 93%) in 2 lead-time cycles, with less inventory
  • 24M annual revenue lift by recapturing “spilled” demand
  • Order cancellation rates cut in half

Inventory / Incentive Optimization for $90M Omni-Channel Online Retailer

Inventory Challenges

We were thrilled to diversify into ecommerce, but we struggled to adopt an appropriate inventory model. We followed our old B2B supplier strategies with our new B2C channel. It didn’t go well. Our legacy business model didn’t require the most structured inventory processes, and it quickly became clear that our ecommerce channel required far more discipline. Our staff was also overwhelmed with a high volume of low-impact procurement tasks, leaving little time for strategic planning in either channel.

Why Hydrian?

  • Inventory strategy through execution for both channels leveraged existing systems
  • Offloading trivial decisions on a long tail of low-volume items freed existing teams to be more strategic
  • Channel methodologies for sourcing, inventory, and purchasing aligned with new ecommerce models
  • No long-term investment meant low-risk entry

Results

  • 12 hours of purchasing overhead saved per day
  • Strategic focus enabled coordination with sales and marketing for ecommerce promotions
  • A higher percentage of orders delivered in 2 days with optimized ecommerce channel
  • 40% reduction in stockouts, no added inventory
  • 12% EBITDA growth in 4 months from fill-rate driven revenue lift
  • $600k profit lift from optimized supplier rebate utilization

Rapid Capital Release to Fund Expansion for $40M Online Retailer

Inventory Challenges

We had limited visibility into our heavy investment of slow-moving inventory. Our warehouse staff could sense aging inventory was beginning to accumulate, but our systems were never configured to expose the right data to illustrate the problem. This lack of awareness significantly impacted our team, as excess stock costs tied up resources needed for future staffing. Then our annual bank audit surfaced our deadstock, leading to an unexpected reduction in our line of credit.

Why Hydrian?

  • Ability to identify hidden, high-impact inventory challenges typically not tracked by standard systems and enacted comprehensive strategies to remedy all issues
  • Better use of existing systems and data revealed high ROI optimization opportunities that were executed with no additional training
  • New processes and reporting empowered existing staff with broader inventory knowledge and more strategic perspectives

Results

  • Released $1.2M from inventory in 4 months
  • Maintained 90%+ fill rate
  • Hiring plan executed 9 months ahead of schedule
  • DC expansion deferred due to freed space
