Take the unknowns out of store management

The challenges faced in managing a retail store
 
  • The best way to increase operational efficiency is to integrate in-store business processes into a single centralised system
  • To manage a store successfully you require versatile management modules which offer multiple functionality
  • An in-store system must not only provide operational order and discipline, but also ensure customer shopping expectations are met
  • A successful store solution provides you with more than a speedy check-out process
  • You must carry optimal stock of the right products, sell these at the correct prices and know which products to order when, and at what prices
  • Accurate, timely store performance reports are critical in making sound business decisions
 
The solution to increase operational efficiency & profitability

Arch Retail

  • Arch Retail (AR) integrates in-store business processes into a single centralised system
  • The solution incorporates versatile management modules with multiple functionalities
  • The two main areas of application are the Back-office and the Point-of-Sale (POS)
  • At the POS a number of Value-adds are fully integrated with AR, enhancing customer convenience
  • AR is a real-time system offering accurate operational data at any time
  • POS has safe-mode functionality, ensuring continued trading in the event of server or network failure – once restored, stored data at POS is downloaded to the server
  • AR is designed to increase profit and sales, whilst maintaining optimal stock levels when operated according to Arch best practises
  • It also reduces time spent on admin tasks and increases time available for strategic planning
  • Class leading functionality enables strategic functions such as stock replenishment and selling price management
  • A Stock Plan and Margin Plan are at the heart of AR:
    Stock Plan: aims to ensure optimum stock levels (avoiding over- or under-stock). Under-stock can result in loss of income and potentially customers, while over-stock will have an impact on cash flow (cash tied up in stock), and also increases the opportunity for theft, breakage and expired stock
    Margin Plan: aims to maximise profits through strategic and timeous management of sales prices
  • AR provides store management with a variety of accurate, timeous management reports
