The Covid lockdown has seen "non-essential" retail suffer more than most. The seasonal winter sales were unable to take part and with the preparation for the new Spring Summer season, stock levels have never been higher. Bogart approached Scanmatix to help them with their latest stocktake. They felt they needed a system that could improve speed and accuracy, as they had more stock than normal and had lower staff levels due to furlough. They also required the flexibility of using the scanners across their two locations and the ability to count simultaneously.
There was also a need to help identify stock that had been delivered during the lockdown, but had not been able to make it's way to the floor. Getting an On Shelf Availability report was key as Bogart prepare to reopen.
Entering their 50th year, Bogart Menswear based in Belfast & Newry, is one of Ireland's leading fashion stores. Synonymous with high quality menswear, they pride themselves on delivering an unrivalled customer service and stocking a wide range of leading designer brands including Barbour, RM Williams, Eterna, Loake, Strellson, and Lyle & Scott. They were the official tailors to the Northern Ireland Football Team for the 2016 UEFA European Championships.
"The first thing that hit us was the speed and accuracy. We had been sceptical about the speed improvements being promised, but Scanmatix delivered a solution that was more than twice as fast as our existing in built solution from our EPoS system. This alone has saved us over 60 hours of counting across our two stores..."

"Stocktaking is something that is a necessary evil in retail. The Scanmatix solution is something that is going to transform our business practices as we can now see that we can stocktake more often, and gain all the benefits from having more accurate stock, identifying loss, and provide a better service to our customers.."
