Your Consumables and Retail Business

Including E-commerce, retail, consumer service providers, apparel, food & beverage, consumer durables and packaged good (CPG)

Digital transformation has become a necessity for consumables and retail businesses. Historically reliant on physical stores and traditional marketing methods to reach their customers, businesses must adapt to the way customers shop and purchase products including e-commerce, web stores and online shipping.

Outgrowing siloed systems

Do you wait for your retail or web teams to report sales to the finance team? Many retailers use siloed systems for managing their inventory, transactions and customer relationships, leading to inconsistent data and a lack of visibility. To gain a complete view of the business operations, these information systems must be able to communicate with each other – seamlessly. By getting your web, sales, logistics and finance teams on the same page, you can focus on your customers and your growth and invest where the impact will be the greatest.

Competition is fierce

The retail and consumables industry is highly competitive, and businesses must innovate to stand out in a fluctuating market. Increasingly demanding customers are looking for convenience and a seamless shopping experience. Beat your competition when it comes to making decisions and optimize the customer experience by leveraging the best information available – in real-time and with accurate forecasting.

Visibility on inventory levels

Do you monitor your inventory levels? Without access to the right information to manage your inventory, struggles to keep up with the demands can be real. Manual errors, overstocking or stockouts can happen, resulting in financial loss. Stay ahead with better forecasting capabilities with streamlined and integrated inventory management systems.

E-commerce and omnichannel requirements

Do you provide a seamless and integrated customer experience across all your channels including in-store, web store, and on social media? Adapt your business strategies, product offers and customer service to nurture your customers’ needs and preferences through an omnichannel experience where consumers can shop in one channel and pick up or deliver from another without any extra stress added to your team. With the right integrated technology, create tangible value for your consumables and retail organizations.

For omni-channel retailers, streamlining your products, promotions and customer support on all your channels – stores, e-commerce platforms, websites, mobile apps and social media – helps to create a strong brand, drive customer satisfaction, and increase loyalty. Plus you won’t waste valuable marketing dollars promoting the wrong, or already purchased, product to a specific consumer.

Reduced operational costs and optimized processes

By using cloud software to automate tasks like data entry, inventory management, order processing, and customer service, your consumable and retail business can reduce errors caused by manual processes and improve operational efficiency. You can also rely on data and report analytics to reduce waste, identify inefficiencies and make data-driven decisions to optimize your business processes from the supply chain to the customer.

    “In my almost 30-year career, I have been involved with many implementation projects in so many various fields. Although I have worked with very skilled resources in the past, I can’t remember ever having such a professional and remarkable support as I did with your organization.”

    Stephane Paradis, General Manager,

    Morning Gentlemen, By first assessment your development has really appeared to make a huge difference, for the positive. The Web Services Usage would process 50 records, finish 14 and then timeout at 890s. Your new development has 50 for 50 and rare that it timed out. This is a HUGE step forward – congratulations and thank you. Like you we will continue to monitor its positive progress. Well done! Also I have just looked at the Scheduled Script queues, all 10, that appears to have seen a benefit as well. Really well done Gentlemen. Excited to see how the next few days progress. Thank you for all the effort. Prime Choice could not do this without you! Robert Munn Chief Information Officer | Prime Choice

    “I value Big Bang’s responsiveness in terms of support. I reached out to Big Bang’s emergency contact line last year over a long week-end with no hope of anyone getting back to me but they called back within very little time. I was highly impressed that they were so easily accessible over a Holiday week-end.”

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How can we help you?

    What is the best software for retail and consumable products?
    What is a retail system?
    What retail strategies should we consider?

    The best software is determined based on your needs and your retail strategy.

    A company that offers omni-channel or cross-channel retail experiences will have requirements that differ from a traditional or online-only strategy. For ecommerce businesses, the platform that runs your online store may be more, or less, compatible with various software. Having the expertise of working with many platforms is invaluable when making a product decision.

    A retail system is a software that allows a company to sell its products to consumers or businesses.

    It should offer real-time tracking and KPI metrics such as measuring inventory levels and aid in the planning for future demand. Fundamentally all the activities for a retail operation should be run through software to centralize data and streamline operations, including finance, production, to customer management, human resource management and even promotion of goods via marketing channels.

    We consider there to be four retail strategies.

    Any company can offer one or a hybrid. They are:

    • Single Channel
    • Multi-Channel with an independent web and in-store experiences
    • Cross-Channel with a complementary web and in-store experiences
    • Omni-Channel with simultaneous in-store and online experiences
