Stock management challenges in today’s retail store
 
  • The most effective way to improve efficiency and keep labour costs under control is to minimise time required to accurately capture and process information/data
  • A successful manager is hands-on and actively moves around the store to stay in touch with operational issues
  • He or she must have access to accurate and timely information to make informed operational decisions on-the-go
  • Over and above POS, barcode scanning has become an integral part of product/stock management at a number of locations in-store
  • Mobile (hand-held) technology has grown in importance and applications in a modern store environment
  • Accurate stock receiving and other stock management actions are pivotal in minimising shrinkage and ultimately increasing operational profitability
  • Control measures at store exit are critical in curbing fraudulent sales transactions, thus reducing shrinkage
 
The solution

Arch Mobile

 

  • Arch Mobile (AM) is an extension of Arch Retail (in-store solution) and provides the retailer with mobility whilst accessing required operational information on-the-fly
  • AM is installed on a sturdy handheld scanning device and guides the user through the relevant processes – the interface is intuitive so minimal training is required
  • Barcode scanning is integral to the solution and utilised to ensure maximum speed and accuracy
  • AM is applied on-the-floor in the following locations:- Stock receiving, where it facilitates ‘blind receiving’ (receive delivery on order/no order at point of entry; validate invoice against order; ensure quantities and variants delivered are correct – all discrepancies and rejections are handled on the spot)- Stock functions in the shelves (stock enquiries; sales enquiries; shelf label printing; price changes; stock picking on daily rounds)- Security checks at store exit (gauge security effectiveness and prevent the use of fraudulent invoices)
  • Transactions are committed to the server for real-time processing via wireless networking
