Intelligent Retail Nominated for Two Awards for Stock Control Solution

Share Article

Intelligent Retail’s stock control solution, along with the independent card retailer RSVP, has recently been nominated for two awards In the Retail Systems Awards 2011. They are ‘Supply chain solution of the year’ and ‘SME retailer of the year’. This recognition comes from 'Greetings Connect' solution built by Intelligent Retail with extensive input from RSVP.

Greetings Connect is a complete stock control solution that is integrated from the EPoS tills through to the supply chain, entirely developed for retailers of greetings cards. It’s a difficult and very fast-paced trading area, where keeping up-to-date with constantly changing stock is paramount.

Greetings Connect uses quick and intelligent technology; when a new card is sent to the retailer, the barcode is automatically received in the stock control solution. Cloud technology keeps the system lightweight and fast, so all the retailer needs to do is scan the product and it’s there on the system. Greetings Connect also includes a Price Lookup Table, so when that new product is sent from RSVP, the Price Lookup Table will auto set the price of the card based on the store price. So even the pricing is set automatically. This innovation has led to two nominations at the Retail Systems Awards; ‘Supply chain solution of the year’ and ‘SME retailer of the year’.

Both companies involved are extremely proud to be recognised for this achievement. David Mackley, Managing Director at Intelligent Retail says: "Greetings card retailers have very specific issues with fast moving stock and need to stay on top of trends and stock availability to be successful. The team at RSVP have been instrumental in helping us deliver a stock control solution that has resulted in real improvements to the bottom line. We are thrilled to be shortlisted at the Retail Systems Awards in recognition of the benefits an independent retailer has derived from this integrated supply chain solution and it is exciting to be selected alongside the likes of Argos and Tesco."

Intelligent Retail was established in 2004, and now helps hundreds of shops across the UK reap the rewards of improved profitability from increased revenue and reduced costs. They have won many awards over the years including innovation awards over several years, and Best Multichannel System in 2009.
