A 16 chain specialty retail store (now expanding to 80 locations) needed to integrate their operations with their Cloud Point of Sale devices and enable the automation of their replenishment and supply chain model. They approached LINK for solution architecture and building out the necessary integrations.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ el_class=”order-xs-1″][vc_single_image image=”273″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class=”custom-new-columns-category-section” css=”.vc_custom_1686836101134{margin-top: 40px !important;margin-bottom: 40px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”274″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

The Challenge

They had a complex supply chain process with two central warehouses and a large number of SKUs being ordered by the stores. The manual process of ordering was time consuming and the fulfillment process was subject to human errors as there was no systematic tracking process in place.

From the store managers’ perspective, the time spent on the manual ordering/receiving process, trying to track discrepancies, and account for missing stock was taking away from their primary responsibility of providing their customers a great in-store experience.

The Solution

LINK built an automated fulfillment system that automatically created the order for the store managers based on the in-store sales and current inventory. The app also tracks the orders from the stores to the warehouses where the person can use the app to record their shipments.

The app makes the entire process easier and trackable and seamlessly syncs with the Point of Sale system so all inventory changes are up to date.

The Result

LINK enabled the client to plan, document, implement, and optimize the operational process and customized it to provide the client with a flow that mirrors their physical process. The alternate options that the clients had considered ranged between $80,000 and $120,000 per year. The homegrown solution built via integrations was accomplished for $45,000 in Year 1 with running costs of $6000 from Year 2 on. LINK also provides ongoing technical support and hosting to client.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
