Location, location, location! Your inventory's location shouldn't matter if you want to sell it online. All your inventory available online, all the time! Imagine the power of just concerning yourself with getting your locations stocked, that's it. This multiplies your ability to sell by how much? Two times? Five times? Ten times?
Even better, display a location's specific available stock so your customers can choose to buy in person. If you've got it somewhere, you can sell it – no worrying about store transfers.
We think of Lightspeed Retail as a very powerful launching pad. From its fantastic base in retail operations we build customized management admin screens and functionality for a wide array of operational requirements.
Having the x,000 product skus from one of your stores online is pretty great. But having ALL your inventory from ALL your stores is HUGE! This is an order of magnitude difference in operational and marketing scale giving you a Google-facing footprint your competitors cannot compete with.
We think that's way better than pretty great.
As your business grows in complexity, those bottlenecks start to get in the way of reaching your goals.
Human error, long and overly complex processing times, too much manual work required to make things happen, too much double data entry. This comes down to segregated systems, people, departments and channel partners. Integrating your systems can eliminate most, if not all of your operational sluggishness that is standing in the way of the leaps in productivity and profitability you have been looking for.
A centralized inventory management system helps you keep track of stock across all channels. Inventory is added and removed automatically based on what you’re selling in-store, moving from warehouses, or online, ensuring that you know exactly what you have available and don’t oversell.
Who ever said you had to actually have your inventory on hand to be able to sell it? We enable you to partner with both your suppliers and vendors to seamlessly ship orders from suppliers and get product information from your vendors. Quickly, efficiently and seamlessly but most of all – automatically! Now all you have to do is sell. No shipping. No product data entry. That's efficient and Thin.
Get your product to market as fast as possible as soon as – or even before – inventory arrives at your stores or warehouses. The moment product is ready it can be available in-store, online, other stores, in affiliate channels such as Amazon, Google and eBay. All in mere moments.
Present a customer experience that your customers can rely on no matter where they are in the world; what device or time of day. Centralized customer data will show products available in the store nearest them, their personal purchase history, shopping cart contents and online shopping behaviour. All precise, to the miniute to ensure that when your customer's next buying decision happens you are ready and top of mind. When you market your optimized and consistently branded messages, across all sales channels, you will connect and resonate more completely with your customers online and in all your stores.
Present the biggest marketing footprint you can. Your competitive edge starts with the sheer size of your offering. By showing all your product inventory, knowledge, quality and available locations where you customers can interact with you, your online market ranking starts to soar! The Big Marketing scale of your heft puts you into a whole new level of SEO.
Your brand is how you make your customers feel. Your brand is what others say about you when you're not around.
When you streamline your business operations and give your team the tools to effortlessly get your offerings, service to market, you're providing them the freedom to present the best you have to offer because it's easy for your staff, easy for your customers, and at everyone's fingertips regardless of location or device. It's to the minute, it's real time, no waiting. Think of the joyful customer service experience you could be offering. Think of the fast and efficient workplace experience you're providing your staff. Think of the brand experience you're providing your customers.
That's what builds brand loyalty.
