Retail Challenges

Retail OperationThere are a number of challenges facing the retail sector today, including pressured consumers,  globalization, and rising operating costs. Getting through the current economic state requires conservative expenditures.

How can retailers compete in the United States today? By insuring price and product are optimized, controlling and decreasing indirect-spend items, and supply chain responsiveness. Retailers are being forced to become more leaner and more efficient in their processes, and procurement of operating supplies; and they must do so continuously to remain competitive.

Building maintenance and cleaning budgets have been reduced significantly in the recent years. Retailers are facing significantly greater cleaning challenges with fewer resources. Many times this leads to purchasing from multiple suppliers for products; resulting in a mix of incompatible supplies and without proper training of janitorial staff. If this function is outsourced without proper products being used or controlling the spend on supply products, the retail business segment is at a greater risk.

Add all the fixtures, pricing architecture, loss prevention, and specialty print requirements that are typically procured from multiple sources of supply, and the retailer has a time-consuming procurement and management task in order to operate.

There are also the challenges of purchasing disposable supplies for use in the breakrooms and cafeterias that are functional, durable, and protected until used; all within a reduced budget. You have to accomplish all of this with cost controls to operate within your budget. Finding a strong source of supply for your supply products is imperative.

Joshen's Retail Solutions

Joshen takes a whole-system approach to cleaning and maintenance of retail operations, as well as reducing costs for janitorial, loss prevention, merchandising, and packaging supply products, usage, and labor costs. Joshen's supply product and service solutions generate a rapid improvement to your operations budget; as well as assisting you in protecting the safety and wellness of teammates and consumers. We have encountered many different retail operation challenges related to supply product procurement, as well as inventory management & distribution customization. Joshen has been able to implement complete supply chain solutions for our retail customers, including vendor consolidation and purchasing economies of scale, and freight reductions by eliminating direct to store shipments as a result of using Joshen as the sole source of supply.
