Requirement and challenges
Number Six was a new business opening their first store. It was important to find an EPOS system that was fashion-specific and already tried and proven with other leading independent fashion retailers.
The ability for the system and the supplier to provide a flexible and scalable system was also important as Number Six had a business growth strategy for additional stores, customer loyalty and e-commerce. With a busy store opening schedule the EPOS and stock control just had to work ‘out of the box’.
The TRIMS back office was set up and staff training provided a few weeks prior to the store opening date so that all deliveries could be entered, barcode labels printed and attached to the stock prior to taking to the new store once the builders and shopfitters were finished. The EPOS tills were then installed a couple of days prior to opening so everything was in place for the big day.
Software & Services
An incredible amount of planning and investment goes into launching a new retail business, and you only get one chance to make the right impression with the store opening. We worked hard to select the right companies to work with from the outset, and we are very pleased with our choice of Touchretail as our EPOS system provider.
From pre-installation guidance to system training and go-live support on our opening day, Touchretail’s professionalism meant that we could focus better on the other aspects of the store opening. We are already planning our next store and e-commerce website and we see Touchretail as an important partner in our business development. We would certainly recommend Touchretail to any forward-thinking fashion retail business.
