Field inventory is a crucial part of many medical device manufacturers’ business, particularly on physician-preference items. Having inventory in the field – whether in the form of trunk stock (inventory carried and sold by sales representatives) or consigned inventory (stored locally with a customer and purchased on an as-needed basis) – can make it easier to accommodate customers’ needs, gain a foothold in a new market, or maintain or expand sales in an existing market. However, field inventory can be difficult to manage if you don’t have visibility to your inventory or if you don’t have accurate data on its movement or usage.
