Here are 10 ways that Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management
System (RMS) can equip you to compete in a demanding, constantly
changing retail marketplace.
1.You can make better use of your employees' time and energy.
Equipped with a familiar, Microsoft Office-like interface, a
host of automated operations, and integrated information, your
staff can focus on keeping pace with customer demand for
products, and delivering superb service, even if they're new to
their jobs. Associates can learn basic POS functions in minutes,
while managers can ensure smooth operations at both the store
level and at headquarters with real-time visibility into
inventory, purchasing, and sales performance and trends.
2. Fast, flexible transaction processing lets you keep pace with
retail giants. Today's customers simply expect checkout
processes to go without a hitch, even for complex requests and
transactions. With Microsoft Dynamics RMS, associates can check
prices, availability, and stock location instantly. They’ll be
able to access complete customer information, manage multiple
tenders and partial payments, and process debit and credit cards
without the need for expensive middleware and high transaction
fees. They can also quickly create and process returns, back
orders, sales quotes, work orders, and layaways.
3. Maintain tight control over products, shelf space, and
suppliers. Microsoft Dynamics RMS is designed to help retailers
respond rapidly to consumer demands, ensure efficient
replenishment, and build cost-effective relationships across the
entire supply chain. You can effortlessly track and manage
inventory using any stock and sales method and a wide range of
inventory types, and help reduce theft and shrinkage with system
security. Specialty retailers in particular will welcome
easy-to-use wizards that simplify management of complex,
multi-dimensional inventory. Just as important, automated,
customizable purchasing functionality gives you the control and
flexibility you need to keep pace with specialized ordering
4. Transform silos of information into a connected enterprise.
Integrate your head office, individual store offices, and POS
information and processes. Microsoft Dynamics RMS delivers a
complete POS solution that integrates with a number of
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and accounting applications
such as Microsoft Dynamics GP, providing retailers with an
end-to-end retail and financial management solution for managing
a multi-store network. Along with reducing data entry and
helping eliminate errors, your connected solution can help you
adapt smoothly to changing mid-market requirements and drive a
lower cost of ownership.
5. Focus on innovation and growth. Thousands of retailers are
using Microsoft Dynamics RMS to meet demanding small and
mid-market requirements. As you continue to grow your business
across stores and retail channels, Microsoft SQL Server database
technologies provide a flexible database for setting up new
stores, managing and storing virtually unlimited information,
and exchanging data across platforms to reach a global network
of customers, partners, and suppliers. You can also extend the
reach of your business and sales operations with add-on
solutions from independent software vendors (ISVs), including
e-commerce, mobility, business intelligence, and merchandising.
6. Simplify complexity with centralized control of store
information. Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System
Headquarters equips multi-store businesses or chains to roll up
and manage data for all stores from the head office. From one
central location, you can view, analyze, and share information
across your entire business, as well as manage purchasing and
inventory chain-wide, by region, or by store. Centralized
control over pricing helps ensure accuracy across all your
stores and enables you to set up and monitor flexible pricing
structures, discounts, promotions, and sales at both individual
stores and chain-wide.
7. Stay on top of performance with accurate, timely data about
sales, profitability, inventory, and customers. Put your
information to work with more than 100 standard reports and the
ability to analyse and share information in multiple formats.
You can know exactly what's selling best, who's buying, and
when—by department, category, or store—decide on a dime what to
buy or mark down, and track return on investment (ROI) for
8. Hardware requirements won't put you out of pocket. Microsoft
Dynamics RMS can work with your existing computers or OPOS (OLE
for POS) compatible peripherals. You can also purchase complete
software and hardware packages from leading providers, designed
to maximize affordability and quality for your total solution.
9. Gain peace of mind with a solution designed to drive down
ownership costs. Whether you want to simply install Microsoft
Dynamics RMS in a few stores or deploy a chain-wide enterprise
solution tailored to specific requirements, you can count on a
flexible platform designed for integration and growth, rapid
implementation, and expert assistance from your local Microsoft
Certified Partner. Just as important, you'll have the backing of
comprehensive maintenance and support that ensures you're
current with updated releases and provides you with fast
resolution of questions and problems.
10. Go ahead and take that holiday. Microsoft Dynamics RMS lets
you stay in control of your business even when you're out of the
office. Because your business processes are based on an
integrated, automated system, your operations can run smoothly
whether you're on site or away. Automated tracking for all
transactions and inventory movement helps reduce shrinkage,
false returns, credit card fraud, and unauthorised discounts.
Plus, built-in user security ensures employees have access only
to the data they need to do their jobs. The result? Freedom to
go home at the end of the day—or even to take the holiday you've
put on hold.
