Distribution Importance in Retail Business.

Distribution RetailImagine having all of your products in four or five separate locations. Now imagine trying to get a product from each of those distribution centers to one location. Therefore in the highly competitive retail sales businesses, getting the right goods, to the right stores, at the right time, and in the right amount is critical to the profitability of each store location and the Chain.

In most retail stores, the amount of space available for receiving, checking, and display of merchandise is limited and it is important that the goods be efficiently and expeditiously moved to the selling floor in an efficient manner by store personnel. Retailers, in order to be successful in the competitive market, should work towards maintaining an unhindered merchandise flow on the sales floor.

One of the functions of a distribution channel is to optimize your sales volume. Even though you might have several opportunities to distribute your product, you might have limited capacity to make your product, so you must look at which will help you generate the most sales.

Charge VAT Separately on Promo Items using Ginesys

A trend has begun recently, that retailers putting items on promotion at X% discount and adding back the VAT . This leads to complexity in billing of adding the tax separately on an item which was earlier on a tax inclusive basis.

In Ginesys now we have incorporated this aspect and we can mark during creation of promotion whether billing is to happen on a tax inclusive or on a exclusive basis.This will lead to the correct calculation.

MRP 500
VAT 5%
Discount: 30%
Price after disc: 350
Price to be paid: 350+ 17.5 = 367.5

This will work under all types of promotions like Flat Discount, Flat Price etc. Using this feature retailers can better protect their bottom-line even when putting up items on discount.


Use Credit Sales in Ginesys as a tool to grow

Credit sales now a days is a normal practice  in Designer wear and Jewelry Industry and sometimes in other businesses too. But many businesses cannot readily adopt this  as most ready retail software does not handle credit sales and advance tracking at all. Even if some software does then the implementation is not correct from an accounts point of view. This forces the retailer to go in for manual accounting.

Credit sales can be of two types.

1.Some part of the payment is paid immediately at Point of Purchase and remaining after some time.

2.Entire amount paid within some specified time after the purchase.

Ginesys has now come up with this option inside the software only with accounting implementation, where the retailer can easily handle any of the cases mentioned above. This will enable him to leverage on  credit sales to increase the top-line without any complex monitoring. So,with Ginesys, just forget about the complexity of credit sales and use it as a tool to grow even further.
