Shape - supply chain management, SCM. The application to control commodities at the shops (markets).

The application for the management of trading (commodity) stocks. Calculation of turnover (consumer demand). Impressive economic effect!

In summary, the main goal of the application is an analysis of consumer demand for efficient commodity management, speeding up of commodity sales, reducing the glut of retail stocks (surplus of commodity), forming the optimal bid for the commodity supply from the supplier. In the course of daily calculations and optimal movement of commodities between shops, poorly sold commodities gradually "washed" out of circulation (sale).

description:

What do you need?  To sell commodities faster and make a profit. The Shape application does just that.
How? Performs the calculation of consumer (buyer) demand for commodities that are placed in retail outlets or shops.
Demand calculated, and then what? Next, the minimum balance of commodities  in the shops is automatically optimized.
The application also offers to move the commodities to the shops, where it will be quickly sold.
In the process of daily calculations and optimal movement of commodities  between shops, poorly sold commodities  are gradually “washed out” from circulation.
If you regularly use this application, you will considerably optimize your commodities at the shops (warehouses). Moving commodity takes place to those shops (markets) where customers' demand (sales) is the highest. The application analyzes the rate of commodities' sales and, on this basis, offers a minimum balance of commodity at the point of sale (at shop/market/warehouse).

When the amount of commodities at shops reduced, taking into account the minimum quantity of commodities at warehouse, the provider's order is formed for the commodities from the provider.

The application can gradually increase or decrease the minimum balance of commodities in a shop, depending on consumer (buyer) demand for commodities.

The application is not the main application of inventory control. The application works as a "superstructure" above the main application  of inventory control.
IF BRIEFly, THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE application are:
  • Calculation of indicators of turnover for the analysis of consumer (buyer) demand for commodities (sales rate) in the shops of the enterprise for the effective management of commodities. The calculation of sale and economic indicators for each commodity (commodity's turnover in days or %, minimum commodity balance, etc.).
  • Acceleration of sales of commodities  in time, increase in sales of commodities by quantity.
  • Reducing the glut of retail shops (the achievement of optimal inventory/assortment in the shop).
  • Formation of the optimal order for the supply of commodities from the supplier, taking into account all the surplus commodities and the need for commodities in the retail network of the enterprise
ACHIEVING THE IMPRESSIVE ECONOMIC EFFECT IS POSSIBLE IF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE SUBJECTED:
  • The movement of commodities  in the retail network of the enterprise is carried out taking into account consumer (buyer) demand (characterized by an indicator of commodity turnover in percent or days) in shops and by waybills, formed by this application. Accordingly, there is no overstocking of shops with unnecessary commodities and more efficient use of storage space.
  • Poorly sold commodities are constantly being detected (commodities  turnover rate is higher than the norm in days, for example, 50 days) for their devaluation, for optimal placement in the retail network, for performing other useful actions. It is possible that such products should not be ordered from suppliers.
  • Due to the optimal movement of commodities between shops, the total number of items of commodities with a turnover rate in days above the norm is constantly decreasing, which ultimately leads to the most optimal commodities in shops.

Under these conditions, the range of products in the retail network of the enterprise will be most optimal for the most complete satisfaction of consumer (buyer) demand, as well as to increase the profit of the trade enterprise.

THE MAIN FEATURES INCLUDE:

CALCULATION OF commodity turnover  AND COMMODITY MOVEMENTs:
  • The calculation of sale and economic indicators for each commodity (commodity's turnover in days or %, minimum commodity balance, etc.).
  • Calculation of the minimum quantity of commodity in the shop (in market).
  • The calculation of stock of commodity.
  • Calculation (identification) commodity surpluses at the shops.
  • Calculate commodity needs for the retail (shops).
  • The automatic distribution of commodities' surplus to commodities' need.
  • Formation of the report for optimal moving of commodities between shops (warehouses) with taking into account of the consumer demand for commodities for this shop.
  • Calculation of the required quantity of goods for ordering from the supplier. 
  • Identification of slow saling goods (low commodity's turnover rate in % or days).
  • Taking into account of seasonal sales during calculation. Excluding max sales in selebration days.
  • Taking into account of holidays during calculation. To calculate the optimal minimum balance of commodities in the point of sale, it is better not to take into account the extremes of sales on holidays.
  • A set of business logic rules to automatically set a minimum balance of commodities in the shops.
  • Smooth increase or decrease in the minimum balance of commodities in a shop or outlet, depending on customer demand for commodities .
