So the company has come up with a comprehensive ‘business agility plan’ to protect and serve the interests of its customers, dealers and suppliers. It is calibrating and matching supplies with retail demand in a bid to ensure that optimal levels of inventory are maintained with dealers to meet the customer demands whenever they arise and also be prepared for a rebound in demand once the situation returns to normalcy. It is also reviewing and planning to maintain the supply of raw materials to cater to this volatile demand outlook and work closely with the vendors to keep up with the inventory levels.
