Do you have the right solution to manage multiple stores?

The challenges of managing a multiple store operation
 
  • The local retail sector has seen the emergence of a number of smaller groups with multiple stores
  • Potential growth in such groups is often curtailed by a fear of losing management control
  • Additionally, a small difference in a store’s gross profit margin can have a material effect on its bottom line, with potential impact more pronounced in multiple stores
  • Maintaining and optimising efficiency in a multi-store enterprise is challenging, even more so for a business seeking to expand its footprint
  • In a multi store environment it is therefore advisable to centrally manage strategic functions that drives profitability
  • Accurate, timely business intelligence across stores not only eases the management burden, but also plays an important role in making strategic business decisions
