ChainDrive’s design helps run sporting goods stores
Sports are some of the world’s most widespread and popular pastimes and hobbies. Sporting goods retail is always going to be a strong business, whether you’re in an urban area or a less populated one. Kids and adults alike are always looking for new things to play, jerseys from their favorite teams, and other sporting equipment to have fun and stay in shape. It’s a very specific kind of business, however – sporting goods retail requires unique planning and product organization. ChainDrive’s retail management software is specifically designed to handle seasonal products and other concerns related to sporting goods retail management.
With the Seasonal Planning tool, you can map out things like stock levels and prices for various times of year. Some sports are played only in warm weather, while others are designated for the winter. You’re not going to be selling a great many snowboards in the summertime, so you want to be sure that your product placement, stock levels, and prices are appropriate to the sports that are “in season”. The same goes for if you sell jerseys of local teams – you want to have the popular football jerseys out during the fall and winter when the game is being played, and you can set the prices more competitively during this time to make more profit. ChainDrive’s software lets you plan it all out.
Additionally, the software supports the ability to create customized categorizations and groupings. Use the user-definable attributes to tag items as being related to a specific sport or team. This makes product look-up easy and allows you to take mass action on a certain group of items, saving time and effort.
