ABS Holdings have been importing, distributing and retailing pleasure products for 40 years. With over 150 employees they have grown from a small family run business to become the leading erotic goods wholesaler in the UK.
ABS Holdings utilised RetailPro to manage their business and initially used the standard reporting capabilities provided by RetailPro V8. However, ABS found that there were limitations on what data could be reported on and how the data could be delivered. ABS needed a tool for flexible, configurable reporting allowing them to combine data from multiple sources across the business.
Due to the certified integration between RetailPro and ClarityRI the data sets could be connected effortlessly whilst providing the depth of reporting required. Symon Reeves, Commercial Director of ABS Holdings said: “Initially we were concerned that we would need to make a significant investment in training to provide the business with the right skill set to enable us to meet our requirements. However, despite these apprehensions around lack of skill, the implementation of ClarityRI was painless. You do need to have an awareness of what your data means and how it is being used, but we can now report on our retail business quickly and easily, which has been invaluable for engaging with employees through sales incentive reporting, KPI reporting and stores and merchandise planning.
We invested time in understanding ClarityRI upon deciding to implement the solution and consequently we can do pretty much anything with our data. It’s a very flexible system and can easily manage every report that we need. We have saved thousands of pounds in inventory and cost by being able to report accurately to our people on the things that matter for them to improve our business.”
