A day in the life

A day in the life of a Connect retailer

Not sure how a retail management system can transform your business? Take a look at a day in the life of one of our Connected retailers.

The Connect experience

Nine-thirty and you have arrived in the shop to open up. Feeling a bit groggy, sipping a coffee picked up on the way in, the previous evening had been lovely, celebrating a record month of profit at your favourite restaurant, the coffee helps.

You open the doors ready for business.

It’s midday and you take the parcels with web orders over to the post office and grab some lunch.

The shop is busy in the afternoon and a supplier is due at 1:30pm. In two minutes you have run a report off Connect to show a league table of your most profitable accessories suppliers over the last 6 months. You notice the supplier coming to visit you are are 15th on the list! They have some explaining to do!

Nowadays you are expertly informed for each supplier meeting and the good supplier get better, and the bad ones don’t get any orders.

You now have the edge over your suppliers and makes you feel great!

3pm and you send your fortnightly email to the customers on your database. You know that a number will click and buy the product you are promoting and so expect a larger than normal batch of web orders on the till in the morning – so you ask Sally to come in early to help pick and pack.

Before going home, you send 3 product lines that are not selling too fast in store, on to eBay to sell them quickly. This takes a couple of clicks. The money you get will be invested in some new lines you had your eye on for the shop window, they are right in vogue and you look forward with anticipation at placing new items in the window to attract new customers.

Cashing up is a breeze and all the GST is taken care of in a click. Another great day for takings, combining shop and website sales, as well as some on eBay, has really made the difference! This evening you plan to spend half an hour placing some more orders from your computer at home. This is wonderful, it’s 10 times quicker than it used to be and you don’t need to travel to the shop to do it.
