Are you a multi-store business owner looking for some tips on managing all of your stores? We are here to help! Technology is a key player in managing your stores, so it is essential that you are equipped with the right tools that will help your business grow. Having an inventory management system that tracks all of your stores’ inventory and ROI in real time will give you a huge advantage. Examining your stores as a whole is only possible with technology that allows you to access all of your stores’ data at once. If your retail technology is cloud-based, you can analyze your stores’ data anytime, compare data between stores easily, and update data from anywhere to all stores instantly.
Ensuring that you have standardized procedures in place will help your stores operate at optimal levels. You can start by organizing your stores similarly, both on the sales floor and in the stock room. Being able to transfer your inventory between stores is a huge benefit to being a multi-store owner. Instead of having to reorder products, you can look to your other stores and exhaust your own resources first.
If you have an inventory management software that you can use across all of your stores, you should make sure that you are analyzing inventory performance at least once a month. By keeping an eye on this, you will have a good idea of what inventory sells best at each store. This will be very helpful when it comes time to buy for your stores. Being able to pull reports from each store and map inventory sales across all of your stores helps forecast demand.
Another important aspect of owning multiple stores is keeping in close contact with each manager. You should check-in on your stores yourself at least once a month and spend time evaluating processes and procedures. This will ensure that your stores are standardized and will help you get a better idea of how each store is functioning.
