Dead Stock / Heel Reduction

For product owners, one of the most important issues faced today is the reduction of non-productive inventory in the tank. This inventory, often called “heel” or “dead stock”, represents significant dollar values in frozen working capital. Every inch recovered is cash back in the product owner’s pocket.
