Retailers who own or operate stores in multiple locations know the importance of having a high-level single view of their portfolio. Because the overall success hinges upon the performance of every location, it’s vital for retailers to have easy access to comprehensive data about each store. Some might attract great employees and loyal customers and produce outstanding sales numbers, while others may perform beneath expectations for reasons that could include an outdated store design, a deficit or surplus of inventory, insufficient or underperforming staff members, or a failure to anticipate or adapt to industry changes.
When analyzed and considered as part of the portfolio as a whole, these problems can represent an opportunity. Do you operate too many branches within the same region? Should those branches be remodeled, or perhaps closed? Should you reorganize or add staff?
These are the types of questions and challenges that an Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) was made to handle. It’s an IWMS that helps manage every facility and asset in your portfolio. The best retail IWMS software solution gives you the single view of all information and analysis you need to make the smartest data-driven decisions.
Every extra day it takes to open your store is measurable in lost potential revenue. Whether you’re remodeling or opening new locations, an IWMS can help you greatly reduce the time-to-market (TTM) by directing you toward ways to increase efficiency and reduce needless expenses. If you’re overseeing new construction, an IWMS helps you manage vendors and monitor every phase of construction with Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling.
