How StockTrim can help Manufacturing
Businesses scale their operations

StockTrim forecasts demand for finished goods and converts this into a schedule of requirements to produce the final product, plus an order plan for all the required components & ingredients.
The automation can then produce purchase orders for items of dependent demand, accounting for different suppliers, locations and lead times. For example, in the case of a bicycle manufacturing business, the dependent demand items include aluminium pipes, guards, bells, screws, tires, seats, chains and graphics - even any packaging that is required to ship that final item.
Don't get caught short on essential components or order too much of the wrong materials for them to become obsolete.

What our Manufacturing Customers say




Shoreline Truck Parts

“We’ve had some conversations about feeling more confident about where we’re at and being ready for our busy summer season. StockTrim has been a big factor in helping us with that.”

Pave Tool

"Even just the dashboard laying out excess inventory is a huge thing that I’ve been wanting, trying to get our excess inventory down."

Phil Bahler

"Forecasting is extremely important - we were scaling up quickly. [You] don’t want to have a lot of money wrapped up in working capital. At the same time, you can’t go out of stock. It’s the perfect conundrum having the right amount of stock at the right time.!"

Angel Food

The options were to employ another person with more inventory planning experience, or find an inventory forecasting tool that could integrate with Cin7 and automate that part of the process. StockTrim filled the bill as it’s supported by Cin7, offers good value for money and “covers the basics really well".


What’s available through StockTrim now surpasses the tools and spreadsheets [we were using]. StockTrim looks at the finished product and number of assemblies and components. We can look at the individual product or item level to forecast 12 months ahead and can customise forecasts for each individual product.


“One data entry error when punching in the values in Excel had a detrimental impact on our ordering process.  With StockTrim, we have confidence in the accuracy of the information and insights that the software provides. The  transition from spreadsheet to StockTrim was  seamless and fool-proof.
