Optimize processes throughout the value chain
Process management for retailers
You believe that more intelligent processes can save you time and money? So do we. Together, we will find a solution for all your requirements.
Connect your suppliers with our EDI software
The fast and straightforward sharing of information between companies is a key requirement for ideal process management in retail.
One cost-effective solution to this challenge is electronic data interchange (EDI), which allows you to automatically handle orders, shipping notifications, invoices, and other processes with no media incompatibilities.
Having recognized this benefit, we developed software solutions that help you to
- connect suppliers
- optimize transport
- manage each retail store more efficiently
- improve your management of processes
Connect your suppliers with our EDI software
When you connect your suppliers, you create many opportunities for automating your processes and reducing your costs. EDI is therefore one of our most popular solutions. We can implement our software based entirely on processes and rules in your IT environment. As a result, you can convert messages, check rules, and integrate existing applications.
It’s not a problem if your suppliers don’t want to set up their own EDI infrastructure. Your partners and suppliers can interchange data online by using our cost-effective WebEDI solution.
In addition, you can use our supplier portal to involve external partners or in-house expert users in your processes. In turn, you can optimize the interchange of messages and documents as well as more efficiently manage checking and approval processes – to name just a few examples.
You can rely on Visual Rules, our BRM software, to simplify cooperation with suppliers and the optimization of your conditions of purchase. Visual Rules also lets you design different types of price or discount lists. Moreover, your specialists need no programming skills to handle price models, customer and logistics structures, scoring, and supplier evaluations with ease.
Track your products to assure their quality
Your merchandise and transport equipment are valuable – we want to help you optimize transport and ensure that product quality does not suffer en route.
For instance, many goods must remain refrigerated during transport. That is why we developed application-specific solutions that aid you in ensuring product quality. These can handle the following functions for you:
- Detection of in-transit events that affect quality – such as a change in temperature, humidity, or motion
- Tracking and tracing of freight and payload
- Customer-specific alerts that, for example, trigger additional quality checks
- Documentation of quality-related data for recourse claims
- Analytics (increased transparency of risks regarding products, routes, and suppliers; root cause analysis for exceptions)
- Assistance in managing reusable goods
It is also important to optimize transport so that items do not disappear – or are written off as losses for no reason. We therefore fully integrated our shipment-tracking solution into the process chain for maximum efficiency.
Optimize the design and capacity utilization of your retail stores
As indoor geolocation is a diverse field, we use various technologies.
You can use heat maps to closely monitor customer behavior and sales in your retail locations:
- How many customers are in line?
- How many customers are in a given store?
- Which routes do customers tend to take within your store?
- Which products do customers take a close look at?
- How much time do customers spend in retail stores?
- How much revenue does a given retail store generate (conversion tracking)?
You can also let rule-based software agents automatically detect out-of-stock products and order more. This automated approach helps you respond faster for fewer missed sales opportunities.
You can optimize your product inventory and more with another of our solutions: Asset Tracking will monitor the location of your merchandise and transactions. An integral part of the primary inventory control system, our mobile application for inventory helps maximize your performance – online and offline.
