— INVENTORY MANAGEMENT —
"Retailers are in the business of turning inventory. Creating profit requires acting on the winners and the losers.” ~ Marc Weiss, Management One
Disappointing customers by missing trends or not meeting their needs puts retailers in a serious deficit. With ecommerce changing customer expectations, we’ve moved unequivocally toward an age of instant gratification that leaves very little margin for error. Consumers have high expectations, they demand inventory visibility in real-time across all channels and want to shop seamlessly whenever they want. Independent retailers are understandably worried, left wondering how to compete.
Shifting to a proactive mindset.
Yet, they can! And, the new breed of retailer is leading the way by not by sticking to the status quo. More than ever, retailers have access to technology that allows them to improve efficiency, productivity and most importantly agility. Now, retailers can understand customer preferences at a granular level — what they love, why they buy, when they buy, what motivates them and so on. By using POS software as the engine and harnessing data to provide valuable insight, you can begin to make decisions that are based on fact, becoming more agile, creative and strategic in the process.
