The term Consulting indicates providing advice on a particular subject matter to help someone who needs suggestions to improve their business better than ever before.

What is Retail Consulting?

Retail consulting is a role played by a professional person who has expert knowledge and experience in the retail industry. Retail consultants share their ideas, suggestions and advice based on proven strategies to retailers who want to develop their business. They mainly focus on the profits, people, performance and products, etc. Implementing consulting suggestions helps retailers to keep their customers happy, retain motivated employees, have the best of saleable merchandise and cut inefficiencies.

The main motive of every retail consultant is to set the clients on a profitable path and rescue them from distress situations. In a traditional industry such as retail, it is easy to stay in the past and continue with the status quo. However, it takes courage to come out of the comfort zone. It takes guts to experiment with new ideas. Successful brands and businesses are built by people who took calculated risks.Tanishq, Malabar Gold, Senco, and Joyalukkas are famous examples.

Are you faced with challenges related to changing past experience, want to transition to organised retailing, and don't know where to start?

Then you are at the right place. It is right here.

  1. People (Customers):  Are your customers loyal to you? Do you know, when was the last time they came and whether they bought or not? What did they buy? Are you connecting with them regularly?
  2. Product Management:  Is your stock turn improving year-on-year? Is slow moving stock coming down?
  3. Promotions (Marketing):  Do you find it hard to reach your customers? Do you want to try newer ways to reach out to them?
  4. People (Staff):   Do you want to improve sales conversions and motivate your staff?

Do you and your team want to exploit the huge opportunities that are now available for organized retailers and yet are unsure of where to start?
