R3 Global automates Retail Process with iVend Retail

Company: R3 Global

Country: United States of America

Industry: Relational Marketing through brick-&-mortar and mobile stores

The mission of R3Global is to be the most superior Total Support System in the relational marketing industry by providing a complete range of Teaching, Training, Motivation, Inspiration, Communications, Calendar & Events, and Promotional Items.

With the passion to influence “Personal Development for Prosperity in the 21st Century” for each and every one of our customers, R3 Global reaches out to its customers through a well established network of distributors and members of its Relational Marketing Program.

Challenge

  • Ability to quickly and easily setup mobile stores and kiosks
  • Transaction processing speed with minimal clicks to a sale
  • Seamless and deep integration with SAP Business One
  • Ability to capture Debit Card sale – in offline mode

As the business grew, with it grew the complexities and challenges of running a successful multi level membership business.

Even after replacing their aging QuickBooks application with SAP Business One, their existing POS system was not able to match to the pace at which transactions were conducted. Added to this was the unique business process where substantial portion of their sale was done in conferences and meetings.

The challenge was to have an application that could allow R3 Global quickly and easily set up mobile stores and kiosks to manage the transactional volumes. It was challenging to increase sales, reduce transaction processing time and reduce stock out & overstock situations. It was imperative to have flexibility in setting up promotions with inventory visibility across stores.

One of the other challenges was the ability to process debit cards – quickly and in off-line mode.

Required was a consolidated view of the retail operations, inventory and associated financials, and an easy way to transact with their customers, and members.

Solution: iVend Retail

Benefits

  • Consolidated retail sales data with improved accuracy and transparency through iVend Retail Management Solution
  • Comprehensive view of the retail operations – revenue, costs and inventory valuation in real-time
  • Ease of use in executing the unique business processes

The move to iVend Retail with SAP Business One as the back end ERP was a clear step forward in integrating and effectively managing its retail and financial data more effectively. Selecting CitiXsys solutions to complement its SAP investment seemed the right choice as it easily integrated with SAP Business One.

The main benefits that the iVend solution provided R3 Global, was its ease of use, its complete integration with SAP Business One, and its overall speed of transaction processing. R3 Global has not only automated and streamlined its retail business processes but also gained a positive return over its IT investment for the present and in the long run.

“iVend has given us performance on the front line. The user interface is intuitive and easy to learn. The speed of (credit card) transactions is great.

Beyond the product strengths, we really like the configurability, especially with the user defined fields for our membership program.

Single thing we value most is the speed of processing”

Mark Morgan, R3 Global

After evaluating various options, EMPR® decided to implement Inventory Pro for SAP Business One from CitiXsys. Both solutions were installed and implemented by Key Business Solutions. Since the rollout of Inventory Pro, the company has realized various business benefits. Access to real time information has enabled better supply chain planning and efficiency.

In addition, stock positions are easy to obtain at any given point of time at any of their warehouses, providing visibility and streamlining distribution operations.

The company is also able to track orders in real time, manage growth and meet customer expectations for higher service levels to support repeat business.

At the end of every day we know the status of every order and we can reconcile our backlogs and account for all the orders where as in the past we may not have been proactive enough in finding the problem orders.”

Workwear Industries benefits from iVend Retail & SAP Business One

Company: Workwear Industries

Country: Australia

Industry: Retail – Industrial Strength Workwear Gear

Located in Perth, West Australia, Workwear Industries has been supplying world-class protective wear for various industries ranging from heavy industry, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, to medical research. The range of products includes work garments, protective coveralls, disposable protective gear and other protective gear. Workwear Industries continues its tradition with emphasis on quality and commitment in providing the safest work wear and protective gear to its customers.

Challenge

  • Fully integrated enterprise accounting application with retail operations
  • Improve inventory and customer management
  • Improve employee productivity and overall store performance

With its products sold throughout Australia, it was important for the back-office and point of sale solution chosen by Workwear Industries, to be robust and easy-to-use. The company began to explore the possibility of investing in a solution that could integrate their business processes and information across their enterprise. In addition, they also evaluated the possibility of acquiring a solution that could provide real time (POS) data, visibility and insight into sales numbers and help in accelerating and improving the execution of transactions. Their greatest challenge was to find an affordable, easy-to-use solution that would help them manage their critical business functions across sales, financials, and operations in one single integrated system.

The main benefits that the iVend solution was perceived to provide Workwear Industries during the review process, was its ease of use, its complete integration with SAP Business One, and its ability to scale up and keep pace with growth of the business. The staffs who use the system also commented on iVend’s friendly user interface and how quickly they grew accustomed to it.

Solution: iVend Retail with SAP Business One

Benefits

  • Increased visibility across all sales and purchasing transactions
  • Intuitive solution scalable for future growth
  • Improved customer management & retention through gift cards and layaways
  • Comprehensive view of the company’s revenue, costs and inventory valuation in real-time

Previously using Nexus, Workwear Industries elected to implement SAP Business One and its integrated point of sale solution iVend Retail – which would be used at their retail outlets. The solution was so complete; there was no need to source alternatives. SAP Business One and iVend Retail offered it all. According to Leeann Stewart, General Manager Finance & Administrator at Workwear Industries.

“It was more about efficient processing of orders, keeping pace with business growth for now and for the future.” she said.

“We love the way iVend Retail integrates with SAP Business One, from the way it handles the transactions, ease of access of the transaction information, ease of use through touch screens and extreme ease to learn & train others.

iVend Retail with SAP Business One has greatly improved our information tracking through every part of the software.

It is now very easy to process information and the overall reporting is far more accurate and crisp”

Leeann Stewart,

GM Finance & Administrator Workwear Industries
