iVend Retail


iVend Retail is an end-to-end retail management solution for mid-market retail store chain companies. The solution covers all aspects of retail business, ranging from head-office functions to back-office store and point-of-sale (POS) operations. The application is designed to scale from a single-store specialty retail operation to retail operations having hundreds of stores spanning multiple geographies. iVend Retail is integrated with SAP Business One, and provides features including loyalty and gift card management. Pricing and promotions management functionality allows a head office to run targeted campaigns for specific stores, with period and volume discounts. Promotions can also be based on "buy-some-get-some," sales totals, and "happy hours." The integrated loyalty management module enables the setup and management of multiple loyalty schemes that allow assigning of points on customer purchases. With the added ability to define ageing criteria for loyalty points, customers can redeem loyalty points across the entire network of stores. Information availability and hence decision-making can be improved with numerous reports and enquiries in different categories of business operations-including sales, collections, inventory, and fulfillment-which can be exported to Excel and Word. iVend Retail is architected in a way that does not require stores to always be connected to head office over the Internet.

How to Build Pricing Muscle in Retail


Organizations usually rely on historical data and transactions to determine their pricing strategy. However, this data is typically insufficient to arrive at a competitive price. Moreover, customers these days are well informed about the value of products they want to purchase. That's why organizations need to arrive at their pricing strategy only after taking into consideration external intelligence and competitive data. E-procurement systems and price comparison websites have put customers in the bargaining position with the availability of real-time information. This is the type and speed of data organizations need to obtain. Leveraging such information can help an organization counter the threats of new entrants, competitive rivalry, and substitutes with a strong pricing strategy.
