Diana Wagner, General Manager at Al Qurashi commented:”We wanted an efficient retail system that could support the store and sales from the start. We were already familiar with Eurostop’s systems and knew that their solutions were ideal for an independent specialist retailer like us. They enable us to keep a tight watch on what is selling and what is not to determine promotions and customer preferences.” Philip Moylan, sales and marketing manager at Eurostop said, “Eurostop has proven experience and expertise in providing retail systems that support niche independent stores. Such businesses rely upon accurate, daily sales figures in order to be able to stock to meet seasonal and fluctuating demands with minimum wastage.
