Industry-leading retail productivity and intelligence platform Vend has recently released ‘Vend Reporter’ an iOS app that allows retailers to keep track of their business from anywhere, on-the-go.
In just a few clicks on the app, retailers can access real time reports such as revenue, sales count and popular products from multiple stores. Vend founder Vaughan Fergusson says Vend is committed to delivering digital solutions that enable retailers to run a successful business.
“Our mobile app is the latest product that reflects the increasingly dynamic reality of a retailers day,” he says.
“Today, it’s more than just a 9-5 commitment from the shopfloor; they’re managing stock and sales across physical stores and online, being out on the road visiting suppliers, and working from home – often all in the same day.”
Simplicity and convenience were also top of mind, with the Vend Reporter allowing retailers to monitor key business performance indicators from the palm of their own hand.
“Vend Reporter allows retailers to spend less time on admin and managing their business behind the scenes, and more time creating beautiful products, delighting customers and providing memorable experiences.”
Owners of women’s fashion retailer Mookah, Nicole and Leisa Griffiths use Vend Reporter to keep track of their business’s performance across its two bricks-and-mortar outlets, eCommerce store and at its stalls at markets nationwide.
“Running a retail business is time-consuming, and often we don’t have the time to drag out the laptop or go sit at a desk to see how we’re performing or what actions need to be taken,” says Nicole. “With Vend Reporter, however, we have our finger on the pulse at all times, wherever we are.”
“If we have tasks we want to allocate to a store, we can look up how busy they are and determine, ‘oh, it looks quiet, we can give them the task now’ or ‘they’re busy, let’s leave it for today’. We’ve never felt more on top of the business, and today that’s so invaluable.”
Key features of the app include:
- Real-time insights into store performance.
- Widget updates every five minutes, or whenever the app is opened.
- All of the familiar metrics from the Vend dashboard, available as widgets.
- Customisable widgets that lets retailers personalise data metric and timeframe.
- Quick and easy dashboard access when a retailer needs to dig deeper into performance and trends.
- Secure, customisable access, restricting data access based on in-store user roles.
- Dark mode supported.
Vend Reporter is now available on the App store for Vend retailers using iOS or iPadOS 14 and above. It is available to Vend customers across Australia, New Zealand, the US, UK and Canada.
