3 things you need to know to get started with KC Smart Stock

There’s a crisis in the retail sector; a crisis of technology. We have an abundance of tech surrounding us in our day to day lives, all of which is geared around making our work and our leisure time easier – but still, with all these life-improving developments around us, retailers seem all too reluctant to embrace new technologies.

This week at the Sage Summit in London, we announced the introduction of our latest retail tech development – KC Smart Stock. We’re incredibly proud of the system and we’re confident the progress we’re making with EPOS systems and retail management technology will serve to benefit the retail industry in a huge variety of ways.

But for everyone who didn’t meet the team in London, consider this your formal introduction to the latest in retail stock management solutions – KC Smart Stock.

No matter how reluctant you feel to pick up something new for your business, the simplicity and functionality of Smart Stock will let you seamlessly transition into being a contemporary force in the industry.

Any retailer will know that managing your inventory can be tricky – if you’ve got a huge site (or multiple sites) with a range of products it’s easy to lose track of what you’ve got in and where it even is! With Smart Stock, we’ve streamlined the stock management process and given the user real-time data reporting on their stock to paint a complete picture of their businesses inventory so they can make informed decisions based on accurate data.

Take a look at the three main Smart Stock features you need to know about to get started:

 


1) Mobile Stock control

First and foremost, handheld scanners and tablet integration are the epitome of mobile working in the stock environment. Regardless of the size of your warehouse Smart Stock can manage and collate your stock data from anywhere on your premises with little to no limitations.

Smart Stock also allows you to collate your stock across multiple sites. So whether you own a few of stores, or if you’re a national chain retailer – Smart Stock can handle your operation and seamlessly catalogue your inventory to one collective platform.

Real time synchronisation also means that this collated data will be updated instantly to your management platform for accurate and timely analytics.


2) Stock analysis & reporting

Smart Stock reporting gives you an extensive, well-rounded platform that provides full insight into your inventory using the stock dashboard features and gives you an overview of current stock levels across your sites.

The stock control centre is a feature that complements the dashboard allows you to make informed decisions about your business based on the data that has been captured and analysed by your Smart Stock scanner.

The upshot of these analytical tools is that purchasing and planning your future stock levels to ensure you never overstock your inventory can be efficiently managed and cultivated to perfection with Smart Stock.


3) Centralised stock management

On top of the fantastic capabilities of the handheld scanner and its integration with tablet technology, KC Smart Stock opens up all manner of avenues in physical ordering and stock management within the warehouse itself.

Smart Stock can allow you to print out stock labels and barcodes for all of your inventory to physically mark and collate the items in your warehouses with a referenceable code that gives you complete control and simple access to the cataloguing process in Smart Stock.

But our favourite thing about KC Smart Stock isn’t so much one of the features, it’s more about the platform itself. By condensing the stock management platform and refining it to a single solution, Smart Stock has centralised the user experience and made it easier than ever to align all your data collectively from multiple sources in one integrated system.
