ERP alternative for retail

ERP alternative for retail

A more flexible retail solution with lower cost of ownership

Every retailer wants a single view of product, stock, sales and the customer. To achieve this, many retailers are looking to invest in ‘big ticket’ ERPs. But often, ERPs can reduce business flexibility, destroy specialisation and be expensive to deploy, limiting the resources available for newer digital enablement technologies.

However, there is another way. We believe we have a smarter solution that is quick to implement, can significantly lower the cost of ownership and increase efficiency – all contributing to sustainable margin improvement.

Our Retail Suite offers a flexible, end-to-end solution with a core retail backbone and specialist applications for optimising key areas of your retail operations.

Our products:

the retail suite

Maximise business flexibility

The Retail Suite (TRS) Central provides a repository of all stock movements, allowing retailers to connect, if appropriate, specialist systems like merchandise planning, stock optimisation, e-commerce, warehousing, finance etc. As so many of these specialist applications are being delivered on a SaaS basis, they easily plug into TRS Central. This brings the major advantage of being able to adapt to change, evolve your business model and extend your business much more easily.

Rich functionality

itim's product set offers powerful functionality across core operational functions with specialist applications for point of sale, optimisation and supplier integration. We tailor each solution to your unique needs and integrate with other systems where needed. This means you only take what you need and have the flexiblity to expand as your business model evolves.

Powered by optimisation techniques

Our specialist applications use machine-learning to enable "smarter" decision making and increased efficiency for retailers. A robust, rules-based optimisation engine helps optimise stock, pricing and supplier costs with alerts and recommendations to save time and keep your business operating at optimal efficiency.
