Inventory Control Software Solutions

Retail Inventory Problems Fellow's solves

The Fellow Retail Inventory Control Software solution is an integrated data collection offering from Fellow's that provides in-store automated data collection, retailer enterprise system data feeds and advanced cloud-based analytics using the Microsoft Azure Cloud to control inventory sales and profit for retailers.

Lost Sales - Top line impact:

Fast moving items often are empty on the store sales floor but located in the back room or on a display elsewhere in the store.  Displays are designed for impulse sales.  Customers looking for an item where it belongs are usually not going to wander around a two hundred thousand square foot store in search of an item that might be on the sales floor elsewhere.

ReStore Provides:

Directed actions to the ahem handheld devices that pricing errors are sent to.  These actions send a clerk to the shelf section that is empty but where the product is to be found elsewhere in the store.  Actions are routed on the most efficient and most effective schedule and workflow to get key items back in stock quickly.

Similarly to pricing errors, Fellow Robots tallies the lost sales and lost profit impact by taking product movement, the cost and retail of the product and the number of days out of stock to calculate lost sales and lost profit.

Management Efficiency - Store Reviews

Retailers are constantly striving to find more efficient ways of dealing with the reality of the complications of running multiple business locations.

The ever-increasing cost of having regional and district people on the road and the desire to be able to actually see the store conditions on any store in the operational manager's span of control leaves them feeling frustrated and out of touch.

StoreView provides:

The ability of the operations manager whether itis the SVP of operations or the newest district manager to select any store in their hierarchy and see the conditions of the store as it appeared in the latest scan from overnight. This makes a virtual near real-time review of the store a reality.

Customer Service Redefined by Fellow Robots

NAVii Inventory Control Software Improvements

Ensuring the item on the shelf is where it should be, is priced right and is in stock if it is in the store is perhaps the best way of improving customer service.

By providing actionable information to the store manager and workforce every day we help ensure the highest service level possible.

But we do not stop there, we provide the reporting needed for operation's management to drill down into the problem stores that are not self-managing their customer service and we can help direct actions to improve price accuracy and in-stock positions.

Where can I find this item?

People - especially adults do not like to look stupid.  Perhaps that is why 74% of consumers want to be left alone.  But if they can not find it they can not buy it.

NAVii, as we call our robot, can help consumers find an item.  The consumer can show our robot the item picture from their smartphone or the item itself, and be directed to the item on the shelf or escorted as the consumer prefers.
