Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
One Step Retail Solutions (onestepretail.com) announced today a free educational series of webinars that will review the basics of Retail Key Performance Indicators for retailers both new and old. The series, “Retail Metrics” will be presented every Tuesday for six weeks beginning September 25, 2012.
In a survey conducted this past Spring, One Step Retail Solutions found that a majority of retailers wanted more education on the use of key performance indicators for their businesses. The retail technology available to retailers today gives them a large capacity for reporting, but learning to use these reports without a resulting “information overload” is something that many retailers lack. As a major provider of retail management technology, One Step has created a series of free webinars to educate retailers on the five most important retail metrics for their business and how they fit together.
One Step Retail Solutions has, for 27 years, provided retailers with technology systems to better run their businesses. Their stated purpose is to “improve how retailers run their business by using technology to boost efficiencies and collect valuable information that can help them make the right business decisions”. The company believes that educating retailers in the use of this valuable information is consistent with this mission statement.
The presenter that One Step has chosen for this series is Dan Jablons, President of Retail Smart Guys, an affiliate of Management One, and a long-time Retail Consultant. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Production, over the years Dan has worked with retailers such as Walmart, Target, JC Penny, American Apparel, Betsy Johnson, Donna Karen, Jimmy Choo, Diesel, Oakley and the Hollywood Bowl. As a popular speaker, he has been a featured speaker at major retail trade shows and retail technology events.
The 6-part webinar series includes “Introduction to Retail Metrics”, “Days of Supply and Inventory Turn”, “Stock to Sales Ratio”, “Sell Through Percentage”, “Gross Margin Return on Investment” and “Putting It All Together”. Retailers can register for the free webinars on the home page of onestepretail.com.
