Video Webcast to Review Models for the Management of Global Supply Chain Sourcing

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - ToolsGroup, a global provider of demand-driven inventory optimization solutions will present the second installment of its Inventory Optimization Videocast Series on June 17, 2008 at 11:30 a.m. EDT. This videocast, "How to Mitigate the Impact of Global Sourcing on Inventory Levels," will review models for the management of global supply chain sourcing, current practices, goals, benefits and trends.

Global sourcing has become a central part of many companies' supply chain strategies. The shift towards low-cost country sourcing started in the 1990s and has accelerated into this decade, yielding significant capital margin and efficiency improvements, but also risks, challenges and a significant negative impact on overall inventory levels.

In their presentations, Girish Bakshi, director of product marketing for ToolsGroup, Inc., and Mike Jones, president of St. Onge, will provide insight into supply chain considerations, including a comparison of offshore versus domestic sourcing decisions and thoughts on how to minimize the inventory impact of global sourcing. The online event will draw several hundred supply chain executives from around the world, who will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding current industry issues during the live Q&A section of the videocast.
