Ce qui vous apporte les visiteurs ?
Retailers have long known that in order to have customers, you have to have what customers want. But Détaillants spécialisés have a narrower, deeper niche in the market. This narrower, deeper niche means you have to have a more precise offering so the customer can find exactly what they are looking for.
Définition des problèmes dans la distribution spécialisée
Specialty Retail is different than regular retail because the focus is so specific. Pet stores are different than eyewear retailers. Electronics retailers encounter different issues than lifestyle retailers. Arts & crafts stores carry inventory that won’t be found in other places. That means each specialty retailer must be able to define exactly what the differences are in their unique business and clarify how those differences can be optimized.
Optimizing your offerings may mean handling multiple SKUs and work orders. It could involve special promotions that target smaller groups within your customer base. It might be providing exams and their results or repair services. Keeping track of warranties and insurance claims may be a factor. Inventory may need special categories or storage. Whatever the exact details of optimizing your specialty retail business are, defining those details and the problems that are encountered gives you a good idea of what to do next.
Manipulation de données fait la différence
All those details and problems are data. The way data is handled makes a direct difference in the way a business operates. ChainDrive’s Integrated Retail Management software is designed to handle data accurately, efficiently, and intuitively. The centralized database enables an integration of data in real time so that the multiple channels your business utilizes are also updated in real time. That means an online browser can see if an item is carried in your store or whether an appointment is available on a certain day. The item can be ordered or held at the store because everybody is using the same inventory updates and the appointment can be made online because everybody is using the same calendar. There’s none of the siloed information that has to wait for manual updates at the end of the day.
Solving the unique problems in specialty retail requires a flexible software platform that is integrated across all channels and can act as data-handling infrastructure. Commerce de détail spécialisé are equips you to handle data effectively so your customers find what they are looking for and that is what brings them to you.
