In the fast-moving retail industry, operational efficiency, speed-to-market and reliability determine success. No matter how great your brands are, how favorable the prices you have negotiated or how fantastic your distribution, it may all be wasted through inefficient administration. Issues like doubling the number of your suppliers, or your number of outlets add significantly to your administrative load and present competitive challenges. Opening new outlets — or closing down underperforming ones — also poses major administrative challenges. In addition, costly errors can occur during the stress of your busy season.
