The term Retail is defined as the sale of goods and services from companies or individuals to the end-consumer. Retailers acquire goods from producers and then sell these goods in-store or on-line via the internet. Retail supply chain software can enhance supply chain efficiency and trading partner collaboration by better connecting product information, processes and trading partners. Retail companies become involved in supply chain management in order to control product quality, inventory levels, timing, and expenses. Retail supply chain software encompasses warehouse & transportation solutions, inventory control, and possibly additional strategic/planning modules, particularly for the larger/volume-based retailers.
