Control Store Budgeting With ChainDrive
News reports of major retailers closing stores can make anybody a little nervous. But those reports make retailers particularly aware of the need to be aware of all that is happening in their industry and control the factors they can. One of the many ways that ChainDrive’s integrated retail management software solution empowers retailers is in providing the tools that control store budgeting.
Tools Beyond The Basics
The retailer who competes in today’s market has to be able to analyze extensive amounts of data, both historic and real-time. Configurable views enable you to define, save, recall, and display the exact information required for discussion and analysis. ChainDrive Budgeting provides flexibility and full control over who can see what and how much they can access. This allows store groups, district teams, and other configurations to see how their role fits in the overall budget.
Other tools include:
- The convenience of dashboards
- The ability to set targets for any timeline
- The flexibility to choose up to seven levels of views
- The integration of budget planning to POS
- The capability of graphing any selected data
- The use of historical data in budget settings
- The security of monitoring budgeted KPIs for performance
- The confidence of full copy/paste and undo/redo functionality
- The list goes on…what do you need in your particular budgeting module?
If the “off the shelf” version of ChainDrive Budgeting doesn’t quite fit, it can be tweaked until it is exactly what you need. Since we developed it, we know what it can do and we know how it can be adapted. That customization means you get the software that simplifies your processes, increases sales and performance, has multi-level end-to-end visibility, and variance reporting & analysis. It equips your team to create and control a budget that keeps you in business because you have greater cost reductions.
You need a budget that works with the least amount of hassle and the greatest amount of control. ChainDrive Store Budgeting software keeps the head office in control of the big picture without depriving stores and managers of their individual responsibilities. The ability to tailor each member’s screen view means individual store information is secure and each team member can control their part of the budget, too.
