Do Specialty Retailers Need Specialty Software?
All specialty retailers are in the business because they have found a niche market that holds the promise of profit. That niche might be eyewear, or pet supplies, or anything else that consumers are looking for. Because it is more difficult to find this specialty product, the business has been developed to meet that demand. But do specialty retailers really need specialty retail software?
How Specific Is Your Business?
You are dealing with specific products for a specific market and have specific customers in mind. That means your product assortment is unique and diverse in ways that address the specific niche your business is in. Many of the standard features of ChainDrive’s Integrated Retail Management Software solution will be perfect for your needs just as many types of retailers share some similarities. But because specialty retail is focused on a particular niche, there will be some specific challenges related to that particular market.
Maybe you offer customized services, like eyewear, that involve exams, prescriptions, and individualized products. Or perhaps you have to keep up with a changing market, like hobbies and crafts, where the demand for supplies is determined by the seasons or trends. Other specialty retailers may need to keep track of repairs or warranties or insurance claims. The specific details of a particular specialty retail business automatically entail some specific challenges.
Which Processes Need Streamlining?
Only the people dealing with the specific challenges of a business know where the pain points are. That’s why ChainDrive offers a free live demo that can be customized so that the demonstration addresses the frustrations being currently felt. There is a list of questions to help retailers clarify what may not have been in focus.
Processes can be cumbersome because they involve too much manual data entry. They can be prone to error because there is not enough transparency. There are many places in the process of retail management that need to be streamlined so that things move smoothly.
