Bookstore Franchising and Inventory Management

As the owner of a bookstore franchise, there are 3 critical reasons to add CyberStockroom Inventory management as part of your franchising package.

1 – Profitiability

By far the most important benefit is the increased profitability of your branches. If you have branch owners who don’t have a clear idea of what they have in stock, what books are selling and what just sits on their shelf, they will be bleeding money. Especially today when they are competing with online booksellers who don’t even need to keep a physical inventory. For any brick and mortar bookstore to remain profitable and grow, it is absolutely imperative to have a robust and usable inventory management system like CyberStockroom. Take a look at the video below for an idea of the service:

 

2 – Value Proposition

Adding CyberStockroom’s inventory management service to your franchise package is a significant boost the the value proposition that you can offer prospective as well as existing franchisees. This can all be added with no increase in your level of support or maintenance. As part of the service, you will be providing your branches with a comprehensive customer support platform including Toll-Free phone support, 24/7 email support, live chat support as well as access to a vibrant and dynamic community where they will have access to small business advice, articles, tools, news and resources. These are very tangible benefits to any small business owner.

 

3 – Branch Network

CyberStockroom allows you to access and assess the inventory in your different branches as well as to provide that information to your franchisees. For example. suppose somebody walks in to one of your bookstore looking for a specific book. They ask for assistance and the staff is unable to find the book in question. Usually that’s the end of the story. But with the branch networking features offered by CyberStockroom, the staff can easily find out if the book is available in another one of your locations. This way you can cut out the competition and keep the sale within your organization. Of course this is all done on the back-end of the CyberStockroom system and does not require any effort on your part.
