The family-run business had witnessed a steep growth curve by the time it contacted Milner Browne. The company was trying to manage some 24,000 product lines across its 21 stores on a basic solution that was nearly a decade old. Pulse Accessories sources the majority of its products from the Far East and required a solution that would track goods in its supply and distribution chains. Additionally, with more than 30 different outlets across Ireland, company directors required a solution that would not only provide accurate insight into stock levels but also into overall and individual store performance.
How we helped Pulse Accessories
When Milner Browne first visited Pulse Accessories back in 2005, the company required a solution to integrate accounting, credit control, sales reporting and front-end retail activities across its different stores.
By integrating a popular EPoS with SAP Business One, they were equipped with a flexible solution that would grow alongside the organisation.
Comprehensive reporting and data mining tools
Improved company visibility and performance reporting
Improved stock traceability
Better customer demand forecasting
The introduction of an integrated SAP Business One EPoS solution saw Pulse Accessories empowered with comprehensive reporting and data mining tools, leading to effective cost control.
With an efficient EPoS system in retail outlets and an integrated solution for financial management, stock control and sales administration and retail, managers and decision-makers were able to access performance metrics across all of its stores centrally.
Importantly for the company, it was also able to gain access to the traceability of stock. This allowed it to forecast customer demand for season products and ensure popular items were in stock to meet consumer demand.
