Are you making the most out of your multiple retail locations? While expansion is an optimistic sign of increased growth and market demand, running a business with more than one site can present a number of logistical challenges. Providing your employees with software that streamlines the workflow and improves customer service is vital to your business success.
According to The Guardian, an omnichannel approach "provide[s] new opportunities for retailers by enabling each channel to serve consumers at any point of their shopping journey." Connected Business is a fully integrated business solution that embraces an omnichannel philosophy. It offers a great deal of flexibility by automating a wide range of process, including e-commerce, warehousing, inventory, and more.
More than One Physical Store
The challenges faced by a business with two or more physical stores include the coordination of inventory stock and the efficient processing of back orders to suppliers, among others. Connected Business automates these tasks through a fully integrated database system that updates in real time.
Having one dedicated inventory for all your sales channels allows you to automatically allocate products as soon as an order is made. You can also automatically create a back order to your supplier, reserve incoming stock based on purchase orders, and more.
Physical stores with additional warehousing location
If your secondary location is designed to be a large storage of your current inventory, having an automated warehousing program is essential in keeping your system organized and efficient.
Connected Warehouse is a free app for the iOS that converts your smartphone or tablet into a fully functional warehousing and labeling device. You can also incorporate Bluetooth scanning technology to expedite your processes and further improve your bottom line.
