Who needs this information?

This information is useful to shareholders and business analysts, because the turnover ratio indicates the company's ability to sell its products. Inventory is any store's greatest asset and is often put up as collateral for loans, so creditors and banks are also very interested in knowing how easily the goods can be sold.
