Visible Inventory's iShelf product was developed to address the needs of manufacturers, distributors and healthcare organizations that require highly accurate, real-time control of their inventories and supplies. Companies incorporating point-of-use inventories, demand flow techniques, pull systems or Vendor Managed Inventory projects will benefit from an iShelf solution.

The system facilitates efficient inventory replenishment and control by providing up-to-the-minute quantity and reorder information. No longer do companies need to wait for traditional systems to "catch up" and report on what occurred hours or days ago in their facilities. The Visible Inventory system completely removes this unnecessary time lag and provides the opportunity to react quickly (in real-time) to inventory demands.
