Specialty retailers focus on a particular range of merchandise, and differentiate themselves by having significant stock in their chosen range, coupled with extensive product knowledge and high-levels of customer service.
Chain or franchised specialty retailers maintain a competitive edge not only through knowledge and service, but also through centralized buying, warehousing, and logistics expertise. The Fog Software Group has software that can support the specialty retailer in the following areas:
