Run your footwear business with ChainDrive
Retail businesses that specialize in particular products are often able to experience success when they focus on items that are a universal and frequent need. Footwear retail businesses have been one of these long-standing types of businesses for hundreds of years. Because everybody needs to buy shoes on a somewhat regular basis throughout their lives, these businesses can afford to specialize in what seems like a very narrow product scope. With that being said, just because shoes and other footwear are a business’s only product, it doesn’t mean that management is easy business. Shoe sales are very particular and must be handled with great care. Thankfully, there are solutions that can help. ChainDrive’s retail management software package has tools specifically designed for footwear retail management. Use it to increase profits and improve relationships with your customers.
One of the most important things that a customer will look for in a pair of shoes is the size. You need to be able to provide the widest possible range of sizes to your customers day in and day out so that they can find what they need with minimal effort. Having to check in the back for more sizes is one thing, but if you don’t carry the right size at all, customers may be upset and choose to take their business elsewhere. The ChainDrive Size Analysis tool is built to help you determine the optimal ratio of sizes to stock on your store floors. It can pull information from purchase histories and use that to determine the popularity of a given size. You could also enter in data regarding the most common sizes to facilitate the process. This will increase turnover and make your customers happy.
With the ability to both purchase and distribute in pre-pack, you can be sure that no pairs of shoes get separated from their groups. There is also a Mismatch Management module that can handle any problems that may come up. Keeping your products in the correct groupings will make stocking and replenishing much easier.
