I’ve just recorded a webinar with the Support for Independent Retail campaign’s platinum sponsor, Brightpearl. They talk sense. Anyone who knows me, who knows about the 10-steps to retail success, will know I am a massive advocate of allowing the data in your business to guide your commercial decisions, to help back-up those instinctive, gut feel, decisions you may take and enable you to feel more confident about chasing higher margin fast selling lines or cutting out slow moving lines that end up costing you in markdown spend.
A retail solution built with the benefit of the independent retailer in mind…
So you can imagine my delight at hearing a software vendor talking about his passion for profitable retailing, the key principles of developing that profit and only at the last moment referencing how that is achieved with their software.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise though – the presenter, Chris Tanner, is founder of the business and his reasons for creating Brightpearl were not to create software to sell to retailers to make him rich (!) but to provide a solution that enabled small retail businesses to have access to the same kind of capabilities that would historically have only been available to massive companies with budgets that us smaller businesses can only dream of.
