Manage department stores the right way with ChainDrive
Department stores are some of the most popular and long-standing types of retail businesses because they are able to offer customers a wide range of necessities. Much like “general stores” were a staple in earlier towns, you’ll now be able to find a department store of some sort in nearly any area you look. Though they may range in size, they are generally very large operations involving a high number of employees and a steady customer base. That’s why retailers dealing with department stores need to find a strong system to support the continued success of the business. ChainDrive’s retail management software package has tools specifically designed for department store retail management and it’s the best system around for reaching new heights of success.
With the software’s ability to support split-commission, your employees can benefit from making big sales as a team. Inter-department collaboration can be accounted for to ensure that all responsible parties are compensated appropriately. ChainDrive also supports multiple cost centers, meaning that you can have registers in each of your various departments and have sales data and customer information fed into the same integrated database for future analysis and reporting.
Using the Store Performance module found in Operations Management will give you a clear view of the successes and struggles of each of your department store locations. Doing so will help you begin the process of making the appropriate changes to get back on top.
The CRM software component also supports gift cards and registries, which are hugely popular for department stores. They give people a reason to shop at YOUR retail location – and with multiple departments, they can meet a wide range of needs.
