    To address shortages, the brand relied on an external vendor who employed costly and labor-intensive methods to manage the problem. However, the brand faced challenges as they had limited visibility into the vendor’s process. They lacked insight into the root causes of the shortages and had no visibility into the disputed items and those that were not. Despite the substantial investment made in the vendor’s services, the brand was unable to gain a comprehensive understanding of the shortage resolution process.
