About Intelligent Retail
Intelligent Retail started out by creating a system that answered the needs of independent retailers looking for a multichannel solution. The team developed Connect; a retail system that combined in-store POS, eCommerce, online marketplaces and mail or phone orders into one central location. Not only did Connect provide one place for retailers to control stock, orders, customers and suppliers, it was also designed to be easy-to-use.
They are now an award winning company that continues to focus on family business ethics and delivering high quality retail solutions.
The Connect EPoS system has innovative central stock control that will automatically update as orders from various channels are processed. This means that retailers’ websites, stores and other online channels stay up to date with the latest stock quantities – avoiding overselling items.
Smart reporting and purchase ordering means retailers can stock more of the right products at the right times. Therefore, saving money that might normally be tied up in excess stock and avoiding running out of stock when it’s most needed.
Staff can also use Connect to help them provide an even better customer service. The easy to use system has a visual stock tree that stores all the product details including image, description, stock and more. This can be filtered and searched so staff can find products and similar items easily – helping them to sell more.
The valuable customer database give retailers the opportunity to run promotions, email marketing and loyalty schemes to improve repeat business and increase sales. It also make customer management simpler as all the customers are in one place and you can easily filter, search and make lists.
The Intelligent Retail’s eCommerce websites are designed using current best practice and integrated with the Connect retail system. Incorporating industry strength security, professional design, search engine friendly techniques and a host of features, the eCommerce websites provide a rich shopping experience.
It is easy to manage the eCommerce platform via Connect. Products are quickly uploaded to the website by simply dragging and dropping them from the main stock tree into the web shop stock tree. Orders are automatically downloaded to Connect, so they can be picked, packed and dispatched at the touch a button.
Alongside EPoS and eCommerce, Connect can link into online marketplaces and other sales channels such as eBay, Amazon, Google Shopping and more. Stock is updated to the channels and orders are downloaded, saving retailers’ time of logging into separate channels. Connect centralised shop, web and more - all combined in one easy to use retail solution.
