Retail Merchandising


Retail Merchandising systems allow users to effectively manage inventory across the enterprise, helping them to buy smart and sell through efficiently. Retail Merchandising is highly effective for hard-line and soft-line retailers alike. Retailers benefit from features such as automated replenishment, native style-color-size-size2 item matrices, advanced allocation methods, and stock balancing. Total cost of ownership is further reduced by leveraging additional integrated modules within Retail Merchandising, such as distribution center management, loss prevention, sales audit, customer loyalty, data warehouse, gift card management, open-to-buy, e-commerce, and orders and fulfillment. The Retail Merchandising solution is one of the few completely integrated systems that allows users to manage business regardless of where the business comes from. Epicor's core merchandise management system can take care of "brick and mortar" stores (style and price maintenance, allocation, warehouse and distribution, purchasing, receiving, replenishment, sales audit, and accounting interface), while its fully integrated e-commerce and orders and fulfillment modules extend retailers' reach to serve Internet and catalog customers. The net result: one view of the customer.
