Established home counties retailer benefits from smoother stock flow with state of the art retail management system
Phillips Man’s shops, a family run business established over 25 years ago and based in Kent and Sussex, has invested in Eurostop’s retail management system to manage stock across its three stores and school shop. Phillips provide quality Menswear, Womenswear, Childrenswear clothing, Scout and Guide uniforms and is uniform supplier to over 19 schools locally. It has installed WinPOS at till point to capture sales and WinRMIS to manage stock at its head office and warehouse. Since implementing Eurostop the retailer claims faster, improved stock control.
Eurostop’s systems were selected for the company’s proven expertise in the retail industry, following a review of competitive market products. The new solution replaces a computerised stock system that Phillips had in place for over ten years. Sales staff in the stores can now check for stock across the stores and central warehouse and place orders and requests by email on a broadband network. This saves time and money from the previous method of ringing around the stores.
Steven Mummery, Director of Phillips Man’s Shops commented: “Although we have had a computerised stock control system in place for many years, we wanted a solution that was more functional and that uses the latest technology.
“Eurostop’s offering stood out among the rest for its ease of use and performance, at a competitive price. It gives us all of the controls and reporting that we need to manage stock levels, particularly at peak times, such as just before the school year.”
Phillip Moylan, Sales and Marketing Manager at Eurostop said, “Companies like Phillips Man’s shops have built up a solid reputation amongst their customers for providing the right items throughout the year, as well as at busy “Back to School” and holiday periods.
“Eurostop’s systems have been designed to enable such retailers to closely manage stock flows across the stores, maximising stock levels and ensuring that they meet customer demand.”
