Imtiaz, a venture of Mr. Hakim Khan Abbasi began operations in the year 1955. His primeval idea was to kick off a small store which could provide general items of daily use to their customers. Over the years as business grew, Mr. Imtiaz Hussain envisioned of making Imtiaz Super Store, a store which would help make peoples life better. He had a vision to serve people by helping them save money in their day today shopping; a vision to strive and conquer their customer’s with love. Currently the Supermarket has three Stores, five warehouses and a packaging unit and this elaborate network is controlled from the Head office located at Karachi, Pakistan. Keeping pace with growth in Retail Sector in Pakistan, company is about to inaugurate a new Supermarket that be biggest one among all three existing super Markets.
In recent years, Imtiaz Group has achieved growth through an aggressive strategy for opening new stores. While Supermarket sales are a major driver for this strategy, the company’s warehouses had become burdened by poor inventory visibility and control and limited data that compromised its decision making.
As an expanding business they required a modern IT platform that could consolidate their Retail and warehousing operations and foster the planned pace of growth.
- No centralized access to inventory information & availability of proper sales data
- Inefficient stock monitoring & movement
- High transaction time at point of sale and system constraint to handle high footfall at store
- Data existed in siloes at each branch & lead inaccurate inventory calculation
- Unmanageable data consolidation & audits
iVend Retail was able to enhance key retail transaction performance at store & increased overall employee efficiency
Synchronized data transfers between Stores & enterprise ensured accuracy across Retail chain

“The benefits of our new Retail management system are splendid. We have full control on what is being purchased, what is being sold, and what is available in the inventory. Now we have obtained a fairly transparent view of store operations through process integration”Waqas Hanif,
