Streamlining retail operations turns simple with Groupe.io with checklists, task manager, and data collection features that enable managers to get tasks done, track work progress, and collect various data necessary for smooth functioning of the store. Its dashboard is the go-to interface for making rich data-driven decisions.
Checklist: The Checklist function is as easy as it sounds. Managers can create various checklists for daily chores like Store Maintenance, Security, Promotional Videos, etc. and come up with apt questions that employees can answer with a simple Yes or No (for example, ‘Are stocks stored in assigned areas?’) or by inputting a numeric value (for example, ‘How many new joinees this week?’). They can assign tasks based on various factors — roles, stores, city, users — and also set task deadlines and push out the checklists at a specific frequency. Alerts can be sent for delays, and there’s a separate area for comments if workers need to specify the reason for any delay or the like.
With the Checklist function, managers can ensure top-notch in-store scenarios (much to the satisfaction of customers!) and gain complete visibility into employees’ workdays and efficiency. For employees, it is an easy and efficient function to track work in hand and enjoy more accountability. Since the process is so transparent, it also helps the employees in avoiding inefficiency-based penalties.
Task Manager: With Groupe.io’s Task Manager feature, specific tasks can be assigned to targeted employees (individuals or in group) and their progress tracked till completion. Managers can effectively gain deeper visibility into employee workdays (at an individual or overall level) with the feature-rich and intuitive Task Manager. It also allows managers to set deadlines for tasks, set daily, weekly or monthly repeats, and stay updated on work progress through notifications.
Data Collection: With a flurry of activities going on in retail stores daily, a lot of data is also generated — daily sales, inventory in stock, supply orders, cash collected, refunds issued, training programs, etc. Retailers need a solid system that collects all this data and stores it safely. The Data Collection function of Groupe.io is a repository that enables employees to attach such data in the form of spreadsheets, images, and documents, and make it available for their managers.
This function allows store managers to stay on top of all data all the time. While they can detect irregularities and fraud activities, they can also pass on the data to corporate members when needed. Data Collection makes for organized and efficient workdays.
Reporting: Groupe.io’s rich and intuitive dashboard presents one-glance and organized reports on the checklists and data collected. Thanks to the automatic reports generated, store managers and retail heads can notify non-compliance, delays, and inefficiencies, and also take insightful data-driven decisions. For example, if a checklist throws up a slow-moving item and it is required to be phased out, it could be clubbed with a fast-moving item as a part of an attractive deal for customers. On the other hand, specific datasets like sales figures can prompt more budget allocation for a particular outlet or those on personnel management can create more hiring opportunities. The dashboard can also serve as a ready reckoner for the managers to provide help at hand to customers — they might wish to know when a particular size of shoes is expected to arrive or the best-priced item in the same category.
Managing retail stores is no more an uphill task with Groupe.io. It boosts the retailer experience and also drives customer and employee satisfaction.
