Sunday small business retailer management advice: blame your computer system for saying no to a supplier

Small business retailers often find it hard to say no to a representative in their shop asking for an order. Even though they want to say no to an offer they find it too hard and end up spending money they should not have spent.

One way retailers can avoid feeling bad is to blame their computer. By saying sorry all orders are generated by the computer now and it says I don’t need additional stock.

A retailer we started working with just over a year ago has reduced inventory value by $15,000 while increasing sales by 8%. They achieved this by ordering based on what the Tower Point of Sale software advises rather than gut feel or emotional decisions by team members.

It’s easy to transition from ordering manually to using your Tower software. We can help.
