Fashion retailer installs new state of the art till system in ‘arty’ designer store
Eurostop, a leading supplier of retail systems to the fashion, footwear and general merchandise sector, has supplied its windows-based EPOS system for shops to Intense & Funky, an independent stockist of designer fashion wear for men and women. Intense & Funky is using Eurostop’s solution in its flagship department store. The store, known for its unusual abstract art-gallery style design in its displays of designer collections, is using Eurostop’s system to track all till sales. The store stocks a range of well known, individual designer clothing including collections from Juicy Couture, Diesel, Cavalli, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Kenzo and Vivienne Westwood.
Eurostop’s windows software was chosen for its proven record in the fashion retail industry and is a move away from the traditional tills used in other parts of the group that also owns Silver Rivet. Intense & Funky is using Eurostop’s system to manage stock in its store, enabling it to meet customer demand while minimising stock levels for different designers. Sales information is reviewed daily by its chief buyer and manager, providing an accurate picture of its stock and sales position. Easy access to stock enables the store to provide an improved customer service, by obtaining specific colours and sizes from its ranges on request. The reports also provide information that enable the buyer to ascertain which ranges are selling and to review seasonal collections.
“With Eurostop’s solution I now have information at my fingertips to help me with the buying of collections. I can quickly identify bestsellers and pick out ranges that are not selling to bring in new lines. Fashion is fast moving and so it is important that I can quickly identify which brands are not turning over as fast so that I do not have large amounts of capital and shelf space tied up in non-selling stock,” explained Nachau Kirwan, Buyer and Manager at Intense & Funky.
“Since we implemented Eurostop’s system the store is better managed and we have already realised an improved turnover.”
Denise Basquil, Sales Executive commented, “All retailers need to keep a watchful eye on the movement of stock on the shelves. In fashion this is particularly true since customer tastes can change very quickly – it is important to identify popular brands and ensure that customers can find what they want. Eurostop’s solutions ensure retailers can keep on top of stock movements and customer demands.”
