LABEST IN THE MARKET—A USE CASE
In November 2018 ERSTE Bank in Austria joined its customers MediaShop GmbH and LABEST to introduce the new inventory financing product and joint partnership to a select audience at the FINANCE trade show in Stuttgart and at a workshop, before inviting questions from the guests. MediaShop GmbH, with its website www.mediashop.tv and several TV channels, is a dynamically growing omnichannel retailer in Europe, with annual revenue in the three-digit million euros and thousands of products, including seasonally changing offers, for B2C retail.
Stocks are “hidden” to banks
Goods worth billions are “hidden” to banks behind warehouse doors and reappear only when they are sold. What happens in the warehouse remains unknown to banks.
- Stock turnover
- Storage locations
- Stock changes
- Market values
Information is late and out of date
Inventory lists, business assessments and other analyses are out of date almost as soon as they are drawn up, made worse by the fact that they tend to be forwarded only at the end of a month, if not once a quarter or less frequently. In other words, necessary real-time information is not readily available. This eliminates any hope of reacting promptly to any change in the risk situation that may arise as a result, for example, of changes in the purchase or market value or inventory discrepancies. Worse still, slow- or non-selling stock (“shelf-warmers”) is often identified too late.
Data made available through inventory lists and business analyses is
- Excel- or CSV-based
- out of date
- misleading, as risks are not transparently disclosed
and therefore does not correspond to the requirements of modern logistics processes
