Indie retailer up for an EPoS supply chain award


The Retail Systems Awards judging panel has shortlisted independent card retailer RSVP Greetings with Intelligent Retail for the 2011 ‘Supply Chain Solution of the Year’ category with the winner to be announced later this month.


This award recognises retailers who have introduced a supply chain


Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) solution that helped the business manage stock levels, whilst also improving visibility across the entire organisation. Judges also assessed the cost-saving benefi ts of the solution. RSVP Greetings is a successful specialist card and gift retailer that has


recently opened its third store. The company has enjoyed continued growth despite strong competition by delivering ‘up to the minute best in class’ products. Having the right cards on the shelves at the right time is essential, as is keeping the shelves fully stocked. Working together with Intelligent Retail they use ‘Greetings Connect’, a


complete retail system that is integrated from the EPoS tills through to the supply chain. This gives total real time visibility of stock across all locations, letting them track and manage product availability easily and effi ciently.


Greetings Connect includes a ‘Price Lookup Table’, so when a new product


is sent from the supplier, the Price Lookup Table will auto set the price of the card based on the store price. So even the pricing is set automatically. Intelligent Retail is a UK multi channel EPoS solution provider specialising


in retail systems for independent retailers. Giftware Connect is a system specifi cally developed for the Greeting Card industry alongside leading retailers and suppliers. David Mackley, Managing Director at Intelligent Retail comments: “Greetings


card retailers have very specifi c issues with fast moving stock and need to stay on top of trends and stock availability to be successful. The team at RSVP have been instrumental in helping us deliver a system that has resulted in real improvements to the bottom line. We are thrilled to be shortlisted at the Retail Systems Awards in recognition of the benefi ts an independent retailer has derived from this integrated supply chain solution and it is exciting to be selected alongside the likes of Argos and Tesco.”
