Similar to other multi-entity businesses, your retail business chain has similar needs: better visibility, better information to make better decisions, and on-point inventory tracking, just to name a few. You need to know how well each location is doing, so you can see where you might need to devote more time, energy and resources. And of course, you definitely don’t want to run out of in-demand products, or unnecessarily overstock items. If your current accounting solution is causing you to spend too much time tracking inventory from one store to another, or getting a handle on sales figures from last month, or for the previous quarter, then you’re definitely in need of a better, more efficient system.

If you’re in the hunt for a new solution, then look to a cloud-based accounting software that offers easy implementation, is easy to use, and more—so you can enjoy true and accurate visibility into all aspects of your retail business, from one location to another.
Even better, consider Gravity Software™ (Gravity), a cloud-based accounting solution written on the Microsoft Dynamic 365 (aka Microsoft CRM) platform. Once implemented, Gravity provides each of your facilities with secure, web-based access to real-time information, so all team members can do their job, from any browser, on any device. Say goodbye to tallying up receipts, crunching numbers on that adding machine or cumbersome spreadsheets. Operate with confidence, knowing that your sales figures from each location are on point, current and precise! Proactively manage your product inventory at multiple locations, knowing that your ordering quantities are no longer just OK, but just right!
Easy, Efficient Data Analysis and Reporting
With Gravity, you can empower your retail team at each location, by setting up parameters for them to access the areas of your shared database that you want them to see. Your regional manager will now benefit from seeing sales figures from one location to another, while your recently hired sales associate will only need to access what is necessary for his or her job functions. That’s right: you can implement varying degrees of security measures and accessibility so each team member at any location can view and utilize the information they need without unnecessarily accessing data or sensitive information. The result: you’ll be able to view precision-based data which in turn, enables you to make better-informed decisions.
Accurate Performance Tracking
The benefits don’t stop with customized data accessibility. With Gravity in place, you can track performance using virtually any dimension or criteria: by location, region, or even by team member. You can view your retail chain’s performance from a broad, bird’s eye view and analyze an entire region; or you can zero-in and track performance for Employee ABC at Location 123.
It’s really up to you, and we’re just getting started. Remember, with Gravity, your retail business will enjoy all of the following and much more…
- Better Financial Reporting: Utilize Gravity’s financial reporting tools to compare locations and analyze trends within one company or across companies.
- Real-Time Analytics: With integrated tools like Microsoft’s Power BI you can quickly develop meaningful dashboards to prevent issues becoming problems.
