Remember when we all thought 2021 would be the year we finally escaped the pandemic?
Well, it didn’t quite turn out that way. Most of us got our main culture fix from inside, watching Squid Games, the billionaire space race and doing the Baby Shark Dance in the comfort of our own homes. We made remote living work in our personal lives. And the same was said for businesses everywhere.
Empty supermarket shelves weren’t uncommon as supply chain challenges continued into this year. Due to increased demand and restricted supply, prices rose at their fastest rate since 1982.
E-tailers felt the consequences of being out of stock keenly. A study from Profitero found that it took 3-4 days to recover their position in Amazon search results when out of stock for just one day.
Side note: Brikl’s supplier integrations allow merchants to avoid these inventory complications by notifying customers when product levels are low.
