When Do Operations Managers Need To Know?
Operations Management is an essential part of the retail equation. Without the overall perspective of the entire operation and detailed data analysis of specific functions this essential part is hindered. Operations Managers need to know exactly what is going on in every aspect of the business that their responsibility covers. Store performance, employee productivity, sales analysis, inventory control, and loss prevention are constantly changing. Operations Managers need to know what is happening in these areas and more, and they need to know it when it happens, not after a report has been compiled and submitted in a business meeting.
ChainDrive’s Integrated Retail Management Solution has been designed by experienced retailers who understand the vital importance of real-time information in making decisions. The centralized database allows access of both historical and real-time data in a multitude of formats for analysis.
This provides an accurate picture of what is happening in the business, when it happens. Teams are able to access key operational data and act on it immediately. Loss prevention, for example, is always to be monitored. ChainDrive’s exception-based logic recognizes abnormalities at store level and alerts you so action can be taken. Drillable data views, pivots, reports, and more enable a closer look at exactly what is happening.
The instant access to data and the tools to act upon discrepancies or policy breaches can happen quickly, preventing further damage. Without that immediate information, loss prevention tactics are similar to the proverbial barn door being locked after the horse is stolen.

Software that has been designed to provide this information is integrated, providing the comprehensive overview and the detailed specifics from one end of the business to the other, across all channels with no time lags to slow response.
