A few years ago, it was a dream for every businessman to run his business smoothly and efficiently. But now, it has become a reality. To start a business or upgrade an existing business, you need an accurate plan to sell your product well in the market. Also, you are required to plan the retail structure of your business.
Retail sales are the fastest growing business idea in the economy. If you are looking to run your business independently, the retailer should be able to meet all the needs of the store, including inventory management, billing, staffing, marketing, sales, merchandising, etc. Retail software is a mature solution that enhances the processes involved in the retail business. It keeps data up-to-date and opens up future growth opportunities.
In this blog, I am going to share my thoughts on the fact that many retail stores still faces several business problems, to which we at SWIL, offer businesses a solution for their day-to-day activity.
Also, we will be sharing how to make your retail store independent that generates revenue in minimal resources.
Responsibilities that a Retail Store contains
If we consider retail stores they are a lot dependent on various people and factors in the supply chain and include:
- Suppliers & Logistics Management for in time Delivery of goods at best rates
- Inventory Management and Control
- Expiry Management
- In-store management of perishable and non-perishable goods, based on the properties and attributes of the products
- Handling Sales, promotions, discount and customer engagement
- Keeping track of offers from parent company
- Handling breakages and expired items
- Control over near expiry items
- Handling multiple locations for sales and billing
- Accounting and Closing
- Handling customer advances
- Billing and cash handing rights
- Handling employee’s salary and commission based on sales made by them and much more.
All these responsibilities are being divided within the store as it is almost impossible for a single person to manage all these activities, and hence the Retail Store Suffers.
Since these jobs are regular and monotonous, whoever is handling them day by day tends to make errors and thus loss of resources. Those primarily involved in retail stores include the owner, salesman, seller (supplier), accountant, and point of sale operator or customer bill and cash taker.
