Additional back stock reporting. A report that can be run by dates or monthly to see how many bins fore each subcat along with the oldest date, number pushed to the sales floor and number added to backstock.
Benefits (especially for multi store owners):
- Productivity metric on the number of bins pushed to the sales floor in a given month. Great way to compare stores.
- Evaluate number of bins pushed to floor vs sales for the month. Ex. Sales in long sleeves were down in October but you see that half the number of bins were pushed to the floor this year vs ly. Sales floor wasn't fully stocked in order to capitalize on the sales.
- Refer back to the previous year when calculating floor space or buying needs. My employees seem to find the # of back stock bins an easier way to look at inventory needs. Last year we had 20 bins of athletic wear going into December this year 15. We need to push the athletic message. You'd think this would be a no brainier but this gives them a goal they can easily see on their own.
