Washington, D.C. -- POS solution-provider POSitive Technology said Thursday that It'Sugar has selected them as their POS partner to implement the Microsoft Dymanics RMS and OpSuite solutions to meet the company’s growth needs.
Candy retailer It'Sugar plans to open as many as 10 new stores in 2012, in addition to continuous updating and refreshing of inventory to keep pace with sales and customer preferences, said the company.
With 20 It'Sugar stores, It'Sugar manages some 9,728 SKUs of confectionery, gifts and other merchandise. To meet its goals, It'Sugar needed a reliable, responsive retail management system that could translate POS transactions into actionable business information for corporate management.
OpSuite's real time sales reports allow the corporate office to see every sale within three to five seconds of the transaction.
"We track and manage inventory from our corporate offices in Florida on a daily basis," said Butch Smith, It'Sugar IT manager. "But we don't work from warehouses. Everything is drop-shipped directly to the stores, so having a system that gives us instantaneous access to sales data lets our buyers make accurate decisions based on facts rather than gut feelings.”
