RMS – Retail ERP system
What is it?
Our Retail Management System (RMS) centrally handles all stock transactions while monitoring and controlling practically all aspects of a retail enterprise. Because it’s at the heart of the Retail Directions software platform, RMS enables retailers to drive a unified customer experience across all store locations, including their web stores.
What does it do?
RMS tracks and manages items, prices, promotions, stores, warehouses, stock levels, customers, employees, sales and profits. It collects all the accounting information and feeds it directly into the retailer’s General Ledger and other financial systems. It also detects fraud and helps in loss prevention. RMS also provides centralised control over store systems, including POS and mobile store devices.
What advantages does it offer your business?
Because RMS has been developed specifically for retail, it can be implemented without business blueprinting or extensive software configurations. In the key areas of your business, RMS natively supports alternative rules for retail business processes. This makes it easy to reconfigure for specific business requirements. This flexible approach allows for rapid implementation and easy changes at later stages, when business requirements evolve.
RMS has proven scalability. It allows retailers to operate multiple retail brands using a single RMS database, running thousands of stores with hundreds of thousands of SKUs and multiple barcodes. Core functional areas within RMS include: product management, procurement, stock management including auto replenishment and computer-aided stock redistribution, prices and promotions management, customer management, warehousing, merchandise budgeting, and loss prevention.
RMS also operates as an integral part of the omni-channel solution available within the Retail Directions platform, supporting order acceptance online or within stores, with fulfilment from integrated warehouse or bricks and mortar stores.
Warehouses in RMS operate in real time, using RF technology. The system supports advanced warehouse management functionality, with the entire supply chain being SSCC enabled. Stock can be delivered directly to your stores or to warehouses for storage, cross-dock, or break-bulk distribution.
