GREENWOODS MENSWEAR CHOOSE FUTURA'S RETAIL TECHNOLOGY TO UNDERPIN EXPANSION

Greenwoods WorcesterGreenwoods Menswear Ltd have chosen Futura as their technology partner, not only to replace their old system in 79 stores with the latest real-time technology, but also for their planned 100+ future stores and to run the stock allocation for their new website.

Karen Wang, Information Director of Greenwoods said: 

"With Futura the information will be rationalised into one place so will be accurate and totally up to date, all our product lines, stock levels and branch performance will be visible in real-time.

Futura Analyser, their data mining tool, will give us weekly and daily flash reports to enable us to monitor sales and margin performance by product and by branch so we'll have much better control of the business."

Greenwood's new cash injection and technology investment allows them to move from a 20 year old system to the latest retail technology, to vastly improve their merchandising and stock control capabilities.

They will be using Futura's "open to buy" facility to improve flexibility and allow merchandisers to buy smarter and so continue to offer customers competitive prices. Greenwood's COO, Neil Roberts added:

"With everything that is happening in the business, it was important for us to choose the right retail partner. As well as Futura's technology having all the functionality we need, it's their support and management people we found really impressive - these are people we can really work with."

Futura are also writing bespoke software to link to the new website www.greenwoodsonline.com, Greenwood's 1860 suit hire system, to Sage's accounting package and to their warehouse solution so that all the wireless scanners and warehouse terminals are updated at the same time as the scanners and system.
