As a well-established retailer with over 22 retail stores and supplying across the country, DCC wanted to use the advantage of a strong market position to drive business growth.

Non-integrated retail system
Difficulty in setting up promotions & discounts
Inefficient stock monitoring and stock movement
Inadequate customer information
With the goal of improving productivity, increase inventory visibility across the retail chain and to increase sales from its existing customers, DCC started searching for an Enterprise Class retail system that could integrate their overall retail business functions.
Managing hundreds of inventory items, DCC was struggling to effectively control the inventory levels and cope with the fast changing demands of their customers.
Managing retail operations with inventory control and good customer service seemed like a complex task since their retail stores were located in different regions of the country.
DCC was keen to analyze sales and inventory performance in real time. The company’s goal was to gather more accurate and timely figures to support decision making.
Their existing legacy system was unable to manage such transaction volumes and was falling short of the expectations.
