You’ve benefited. Maybe even tremendously. But the ROI is hard to quantify because of all the extra work you’ve put in. We get it. Because we heard it from peers who’ve moved their Inventory Management to Magic™.
We aren’t here to bash or belittle any other solution, but rather to offer an alternative to what might just possibly be keeping you up at night…literally.
Itasca’s CGO system is different. Why? It comes down to fundamental architecture, the building blocks of any solution. Because they are “fundamental,” those blocks are hard to change once decided-upon.
Itasca’s technical foundation is based upon REAL-TIME functionality. What this means is REAL-TIME gathering of ALL data including POS transactions (sales and returns); incoming invoices from vendors; actual vendor receipts at the back-door; department and store transfers; adjustments to inventory for damage, reclaim, etc.; and others.
Others gather information REAL-TIME as well, but the difference is in the data’s processing. Magic also PROCESSES the data in REAL-TIME. The alternative, as you know, is to batch-process the data overnight or during store closing time. Nothing at all wrong with batch processes, because they are the right way to do things for some applications. Our founders knew, after studying inventory processes with major retailers, that the data not only had to be gathered, but processed in REAL-TIME so it could be used at ANY MOMENT IN TIME.
Processing in REAL-TIME means perpetual inventory is always up-to-date, not as of last night minus “we sold SOMETHING” today. Check it anytime to see how much Product X is in the store.
What does this mean? No more arbitrarily changing order quantities AFTER doing inventory maintenance tasks like adjustments, transfers, or cycle counts. You NEVER have to do both with Magic™. Think how that could change your peoples’ outlook on CGO.
Let’s talk now about how Itasca can help.
