The introduction of a new labelling module by Pen Mobile Solutions sees Phased Consultancy benefit from increases in productivity and accuracy in retail environments.
The Netherlands (Utrecht)
It is a common directive of Phazed Consultancy to enter distressed retail environments, or retailers under administration, in order to quickly and accurately mark down stock for clearance. This task has traditionally taken the format of noting the current price direct from the shelf, then manually calculating and handwriting discount tickets to affix to the stock.
“We contacted Pen Mobile Solutions to see if they could help us reduce the time involved in mark downs, and to help us eradicate errors arising from the hand written method”. Explains Alex Linnell, Managing Director at Phazed Consulting. “We were particularly interested in automation from a tailored software application for use with mobile devices and printers”.
Pen Mobile was able to offer Phazed our newly developed ticketing module, part of our Stock Inventory software suite, which had the capacity to fulfil their ‘clear down’ requirement. The software was piloted at first opportunity with some rather extraordinary results.
“We found that we had a significant increase in productivity, probably as much as 50%!” Alex continued. “Our staff found the system easy to use with very little training required. We also achieved a significant reduction in errors.”
Phazed, as well as several other customers, have already expressed an interest in additional modifications of this product in order to tailor it to their specific business requirements. These variations include currency conversion re-pricing and re-pricing driven by predetermined data inputs.
Phazed Consultancy is looking to use a bespoke extension to our software in the immediate future. Pen Mobile Solutions offer a range of software solutions that are all fully supported. Speak to us to find out how our software solutions can improve your business.
