Don’t Forsake Your Retail Supply Chain
There is more to managing retail supply chains than looking after warehouses and inventory. You also have receipts, invoices, work orders, transfers, replenishments, allocations, and other fine details related to warehouse layout and even transportation issues. That last one is particularly important if you manage your own truck fleet or transportation initiatives.
Integrating your accounting processes is also important to the big picture.
To be sure, your supply chain touches on almost every aspect of your retail business. It starts with product purchasing and ordering. How much do you order, which products do you stock, and when should you order are three very important questions you have to ask about each store in your chain and each product in your inventory.
After you get your product in the door, then it’s time to manage your inventory. How do you ensure that each store in your chain is adequately stocked with the right product and the right amounts for each product?
And don’t think that your supply chain ends when product reaches the store. Managing your inventory inside each store is also important. ChainDrive connects your point of sale system with the rest of your inventory and warehouse management. You can complete your supply chain with proper inventory and organizational management – from the top down and from the bottom up.
