5 Things Footwear Retailers Need
Footwear retailers face a challenging task. How do you provide comfortable, stylish footwear suitable for the season in the sizes your customer hopes to find? That requires a lot of information and the ability to intelligently analyze size needs. You also must manage performance, inventory, and products in a way that keeps the season in mind. Additionally, the product needs to be replenished and allocated appropriately.
ChainDrive Footwear has the things you need: dynamic tools that have been specifically designed to handle the complexities of the challenge you face.
Intelligent Size Analysis
Footwear retailers have a size-sensitive business. When shoppers look at your stock, one of the first questions will be, “does this come in my size?” If you do not have the size they need, what happens next? The intelligent size analysis tool gives you the ability to avoid stocking too much of the less popular sizes and too little of the size most people need. Because all ChainDrive components are integrated, you can do much more.
See what is happening all over your enterprise and take appropriate action to maintain profitability. ChainDrive gives you the comprehensive views you need to manage the performance of the things that matter to you.
Advanced Replenishment & Allocation
ChainDrive offers a distinct functionality that allows style, color, and size accuracy throughout your allocation process. You can purchase by pre-pack and distribute by pre-pack if you need to. Mismatch management resolves the issue of single shoes or size variance per pair, so your losses are reduced and profit is increased.
Inventory & Product Management
What happens when a customer needs an item that you know you have in another location? Because ChainDrive has a centralized database, you can see exactly where all your inventory is in real time. You can find it, automatically transfer it and update the status, and fulfill orders quickly so your customer is satisfied. Since updates happen in real time, nobody sells the same item twice.
Seasonal Assortment Management
When seasons change, people need different types of footwear. You can manage the various seasonal assortments easily with ChainDrive so you can focus on providing your customers with the footwear they need when they need it.
ChainDrive Footwear equips footwear retailers to manage their complex business and stay ahead of the competition.
