3 Failures That Affect Operations Management
Operations management for retail can be like a smoothly running engine that powers the effectiveness of the entire operation. Or that same engine can be the sputtering machine that keeps causing problems by its inadequacy for the job. ChainDrive’s operation management system provides the tools that your management team needs to avoid the problems that a failure to automate, analyze, and/or act can cause.
Failure To Automate
Automatic data collection avoids human error and provides the potential of real-time status updates when the information is immediately accessible to authorized users. Setting up automatic functions with ChainDrive frees staff to do a more effective job.
ChainDrive is an integrated retail management platform that automates the slow manual data entry of the past and stores all information in a centralized database. That means your point of sale can be a collection point for all the data that transaction holds: inventory updates, sales commissions, productivity factors, customer relationship management, and more.
Failure To Analyze
It isn’t enough to have all the information about sales, inventory status, and the rest of the details your business entails. There must be an ability to analyze that information so you can evaluate what happened in the past, understand what is happening now, and can accurately assess what could happen in the future.
ChainDrive provides analytics tools that retailers have requested so that store performance, employee productivity, sales analysis, and much more can be accurately accomplished for maximum effectiveness. You see what is going on and understand why it is happening.
Failure To Act
Someone once said that knowledge is having a grasp of the situation and wisdom is actually doing what should be done about it. Failure to make the appropriate decisions will negatively affect operations management every time.
ChainDrive gives you both the data and the tools to act upon situations like irregularities at a specific store, vendor management, inventory counts, and other instances where a failure to act will cause problems.
The ChainDrive Operations Management component is professionally developed software. Experienced retailers and professional software developers worked together to create tools that automate, analyze, and act exactly the way your particular retail enterprise demands. Those tools have been further refined by decades of retailer input and this level of expertise enables you to avoid failure and manage your operation effectively.
