SERVICES
Open to Buy/Inventory Planning:  They will analyze your inventory and, if necessary, reclassify it to what you need to buy properly.  Then they provide a detailed monthly open to buy plan for each class (by location for multi-store retailers).  By planning this way, they can help you to reduce markdowns and enhance your profitability.  They make sure you have the proper inventory levels in all classes, at all locations.

Retail Blogging: You know you should be blogging, but you are not sure what to do, plus you don't like writing so much.  Let them do it for you!  Check out www.retailblogging.com

Sales Forecasting: Far better than simple spreadsheets (or even complex ones!), their inventory plans are based upon the best forecasting system in the industry. 

Cash Flow Planning: They will make sure you know what you need to maintain in monthly sales in order to pay all your bills and reduce your debt.  They help their clients pay down debt, instead of taking more cash out of the bank!  

Marketing:  They will look at your current marketing plan, help you figure out what is working and what isn't, and then structure a brand-new marketing strategy to help you attract more customers and make more sales.  They will help you define your store's unique selling proposition, messaging and branding.  Their marketing plans always include a marketing calendar, so that you know exactly what to do to get your message into the marketplace.  They can also help you with important marketing tactics, such as in-store events, Web marketing (including search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising, email marketing, and much more).

Technical Issues:  Struggling with technical issues?  Can't get at your data?  Trying to figure out what technologies to apply to your business?  They can help with all of these issues, and more.  Technology should serve your business, and if it isn't, we can assess your technology and help you develop a plan to use your technology to benefit your business.

Employee Issues: Most employee problems are due either to bad hiring policies or lack of training.  They can help with both.  They will help you establish better guidelines for hiring, promoting and terminating employees, and they will help you implement proper training techniques, compensation plans, and benchmarks to measure employees.
