Did you know that 1-3% of total sales get returned? Or that 30% of returns have discrepancies, with an average size of 8% -12%?
With increased pressures for cost efficiency, inventory management is critical to success. Returns are a very important part of this, and having visibility to key return metrics can be used to improve the forward supply chain process.

Analytics and Reporting
Inmar’s Pharmaceutical Analytics Application is a business intelligence tool designed specifically to meet the information needs of the manufacturer, providing immediate access to consolidated returns and recall databases. It helps clients analyze data to determine source reduction opportunities, identify and utilize trends, RA cycle times, address variances in returns practices, analyze aging product levels, as well as measure the effectiveness of both open and closed recalls. In addition, manufacturers are able to view invoices, discrepancies among partners, shipment tracking numbers and proof of destructions. Inmar can also integrate outside data sources such as sales data, other third-party files and more.
