Support a footwear retail business with ChainDrive
Much like the constant need for clothing year-round, shoes and other footwear are a surefire product for a retailer to sell. Our feet need protection every day of the year, and we want to be able to support ourselves comfortably in a variety of ways. Most people have multiple pairs of footwear for different occasions – flip-flops for the beach, dress shoes for work, sneakers for exercising, casual wear, slippers, and plenty of other options for both men and women are all popular purchases year-round. The footwear retail business world involves some very precise planning and implementation; that’s why you should consider investing in highly customized and effective software to support your business. ChainDrive’s retail management software package includes a whole host of features designed with the footwear retailer in mind. Use it to reach new levels of success!
When you’re getting shipments of products in and beginning to stock your store floors, it is essential to keep products in the proper organization. Otherwise, you’ll be wasting countless hours trying to find the right boxes to go with one another. ChainDrive supports the ability to distribute in pre-pack so that none of your products get mixed up. This means that shoes of the same style stay with one another. Your stores will have a much easier time preparing their products when they receive them in proper organization. The software also includes a Mismatch Management component designed to minimize losses.
ChainDrive also supports the need to determine how you want to stock sizes of shoes. The Size Analysis feature uses intelligent business formulas to determine the most effective ratio of sizes to stock. This is important – you need to find a balance between a wide range of sizes and a suitable amount of the most popular sizes. Having the right size ratio will increase turnover and customer satisfaction.
These are just a few examples of how ChainDrive can improve a footwear retail business. If you think you might be interested, ask for a demo today!
