“Immediately following the application’s deployment, GEM Merchandising experienced quantifiable benefits and improvements to its business productivity.”
London, UK (PRWeb UK) January 5, 2011
Global Bay Mobile Technologies, a leading provider of next-generation mobile retail software, today announced the successful deployment of a mobile merchandise management application implemented by GEM Merchandising, a UK-based retail merchandising company. This customized business process enforcement tool built on the Global Bay Mobile platform provides GEM with the flexibility to match the needs of its customers on a project basis and tailor the process to the way their end retail customers require it to be implemented. By implementing a mobile application on the Global Bay software platform, GEM Merchandising has the flexibility to deploy its merchandising management tool across multiple devices.
Prior to implementing the Global Bay Mobile application, GEM used an entirely paper-based system. GEM associates would conduct in-store projects on a paper job sheet and return them to the office for manual data entry, which became increasingly untenable as the GEM client base continued to grow.
With the Global Bay solution, GEM staff now input its retail customers’ job requirements directly into a mobile device, allowing GEM project managers to record activity progress and wirelessly transfer the data to the backend reporting systems in GEM’s head office. With the real-time capabilities of the system, GEM’s clients now have the opportunity to change a product display while GEM’s merchandiser teams are still in the store.
“Before we implemented our mobile solution, we engaged in the cumbersome process of manually transcribing written data into our reporting system,” said Tony Duggan, GEM Merchandising Operations Director. “Since deploying our new mobile software built by Global Bay, we’ve seen business productivity increase by approximately 25%, and our clients are thrilled to be receiving more accurate project information in a more timely manner.”
“The business process enforcement tool we developed for GEM Merchandising is a great example of a customized implementation on the GB Mobile retail platform,” said Global Bay Managing Director Justin Coward. “Immediately following the application’s deployment, GEM Merchandising experienced quantifiable benefits and improvements to its business productivity.”
