A happy customer is one receiving what he needs on time. Your main goal is to ensure the shelves of your shop are always filled with a workable assortment. At first glance, this task may seem quite complex, as you imagine the painstaking process of checking each unit presented both in the shopping area and in the storeroom. In fact, assuming digital transformation has come to almost all SMBs, things are much easier and more convenient.
Nowadays, there is no need to manually synchronize the current range of items with delivery reports. The majority of modern commerce programs provide the feature of electronic selling registration, using which, managers are able to analyze how many products have been sold and are available at the moment. Recording the actual assortment balance is an integral part of effective product ordering and sale, especially in the case of goods with a short shelf life (food, some pharmaceuticals, etc). That is where the advanced OSA DC ecosystem has no analogues.
The OSA Data Science team has prepared a new development aimed at improving trading processes, including maintenance of product balances in retail businesses from the Asia-Pacific region. The ingenious developers have implemented an innovative notification model for hourly monitoring and reconstructing the remainder of products in a store allowing timely information about goods that have run out on the shelves or have become less than zero.
The balance reconstruction occurs in real time, based on the assessment of the balance on the closing of the cashier’s day the previous day, adding goods to the store and subtracting data on sales, corrections, and write-offs. An hour after the last piece of a certain product is sold, the shop owner receives an alert message informing him about this shortage. This mechanism helps take urgent measures aimed at the subsequent replenishment of out-of-stock goods.
When the balance of goods becomes negative, store employees are warned about the necessity of conducting the procedure of local inventory of the problematic position to correct the balance in the store information system and make proper subsequent orders of required products.
Of course, you are able to generate important reports in your own information system, but practice shows, without well-built software, this process occurs irregularly and less effectively due to manual reporting and the absence of specialized employees.
With the OSA DC notification solution, there is no room for worries regarding empty shelves and disappointed buyers, because both you and your staff are always aware of any product imbalance and deficit!
