RetailGaph Software for Shoe Stores

RetailGraph for Shoe Stores

Hello. Today we have an interesting story of a man and his struggle to smooth line his business and work towards expansion.


You just say Ramnath JI'S SHOP and people will guide you till the shop. 

Ramnath ji Shoe Store was a brand that was developed by generation through their dedication and hard work.Ramnath ji was more than half a century old Shoe Store, started by Late shri Ramnath. and was managed by his son Kamalnath since last 25 years, and now its kamalnaths son Gopal's turn to carry forward the tradition or do some thing else.

Being from a business family Gopal poses excellent business acumen since the childhood but to explore the world and learn new things kamalnath has send him to do his masters in business administration and understand business in today's generation.

Kamalnath is going through a tough time in business, due to the increase in inflation, growing competition and ever shrinking margins which are now rock bottom. He  is looking for options to expand in other cities to grow his business and grow the business.

Major Challenges faced by the businesses were:
  • Pilferage of goods causing direct loss
  • Unable to plan customer engagement.
  • Managing Suppliers were a tedious task.
  • Most of the suppliers have automated and discourage him due to difficult in communication
  • Malls and Big Brands have reduced footfalls
  • Manual processes
  • Sale,Billing,accounting, finances, profit loss and over all analysis and much more.
Kamalnath know all this but was unable to control and he shared the concern with Gopal and asked him to take control and grow his family business to new heights rather than taking a job. Gopal being accepted the offer and took this as project to revamp the "Ramnath ji Shoe Store"

Gopal worked in the business for a couple of months with his father and looked closely to understand the past bills, transactions, daily operations and other relevant documents. Gopal came to a conclusion and thought of discussing it with his father.

Gopal told his father that we must go for automation and inclusion of software in our business processes to improve and expand, as managing the accounts and other related documents and current vendors in itself is a so tedious and monotonous job, we can't focus on planning strategies for our business, which is required as we are planning to expand. We must go ahead with centralized software which has all the related features.

Kamalnath : Ok i liked your analysis and approach. Yes we can go ahead, let us search for a solution.
Gopal: Yes give me some time i will search for a shoe store software and we will understand how it can help us.

Gopal searched on web for Shoe store software and he selected RetailGraph Software for a demo and to analyze it against the requirements.
