Nisa-Today's is the UK's largest independent buying group for retail and wholesale companies and the store was launched by distributor Dee Bee, one of the Todays Groups leading members. It is the very first store of its kind in the UK, boasting the latest high standard in-store fittings and Todays Local imagery. The stock control and management system designed by LTS is proving to be a hit with the Group and with store owner Derek Hallett. The system was installed as part of the total refit of the shop and the more we use it, the more we realise its potential, explains Derek. I am certainly not an expert computer user but Ive found the system easy to use and extremely useful for recording all aspects of the stores operations.
The compact touchscreen system records a range of information including the shops takings and stock levels. Derek can amend information and monitor profitability instantly and even use the system to place orders with Dee Bee and Nisa electronically.
Since we opened for business under the new Todays Local banner, the increase in trade has been terrific and there has certainly been a noticeable increase in footfall, says Derek. We have expanded what was primarily a fruit and vegetable shop into a fully fledged convenience store that also includes off license sales, newspapers, magazines, general groceries, chilled and frozen foods. The LTS system is a great help in managing this diverse range of products and Im sure I will soon wonder how we managed without it.
Craig OConnor, sales director at Dee Bee commented, The store has been re-worked and carefully revitalised and the LTS stock control and management system is an integral part of this. The team at LTS listened to our requirements and liaised with us and Halletts staff as they developed the system, I am delighted with the result.
Dave Darn, MD of LTS says the bespoke system is performing well, The aim was to design a comprehensive, easy to use system that took up very little space and I think we have achieved that. The feedback so far is very positive and we are working with Dee Bee to look at rolling the system out across the Nisa-Today network.
