Accessible and on trend fashion footwear and accessories retailer ALDO UK launches Eurostop POS and Stock Control Systems to manage retail operations as non-essential retail emerges post-pandemic
ALDO UK, the established high street retailer offering a wide range of on trend and stylish footwear and accessories, has selected to use Eurostop’s Stock Control, POS, Warehousing and Business Intelligence solutions with integration to their online offering. They needed a robust solution that could support a store portfolio and secure their multichannel offering, giving rich reporting, replenishment and fulfilment. Business efficiency was key in order to power a customer centric service.
Nicki Gwynne, Retail Merchandise Manager for parent company Bushell Investment Group (BIG) said
“We really needed a system that is going to offer us time savings. Stock management is key for the footwear industry and Eurostop was the best fit to provide our technology solution to carry us forward.”
Eurostop’s systems power retail operations to offer a single view of stock for multichannel operations; enabling retailers to manage their product and stock inventory with ease across their POS estate – keeping costs down, while reacting quickly to demand. The connected in store technology, fulfilment and business intelligence solutions allow retailers to optimise their stock position with the ability to fulfil orders and replenish stores flexibly and efficiently. This is essential; especially in the current COVID conditions where the situation is evolving and retailers face additional challenges.
“Compared to other systems that didn’t have the depth of functionality, we envisage that Eurostop will provide us the most benefit in the short and long term as the business grows.”
ALDO UK are looking to increase time savings with the new systems and enjoy richer reporting with the ability to drill down to SKU level data to really analyse and predict which shoe and accessory lines are best sellers to react quickly to consumer demand across different demographics, locations and channels. Having a clear and reliable inventory will mean that stock can be placed effectively throughout the value chain for quick order fulfilment and to meet demand.
Stuart Ward, Business Development Manager at Eurostop, said
“We are really pleased to be working with ALDO UK. It’s such a well-known name on the high street, and we are delighted to be powering the new acquisition by BIG. Our retail technology is specifically designed to ensure that ALDO will have robust stock control so that they have the right stock in the right place at the right time and at the right price. It’s so important that retailers have the right systems in place to assist their operations, especially in a challenging and competitive environment as we emerge from this third national lockdown.”
