SALES CAPTURE A CAPTURE SOFTWARE SALES AND INVENTORY FOR
NEIGHBORHOOD SHOPS.

Design and implementation of a monitoring tool that allows neighborhood


storekeepers real-time record sales transactions, inventory and accounts
receivable product of their daily operations

PROBLEM OR NEED THAT AIMS TO SOLVE

According to figures thrown by the company Servinformacin in the census of


georeferenced commercial establishments, known as Infocomercio 2011 threw the
neighborhood store is one of the business with greater presence in the capital and
in Colombia
Aware of this, the producers have been responsible for training the shopkeepers
on issues concerning merchandising, quality and distribution of products, this effort
seeks to strengthen supplier relationship - Grocer considering that approximately
60% of sales from producers of food and grocery focuses on purchases made by
the TAT channel.

Despite the importance of this distribution channel for large companies producing
live and groceries and their efforts to strengthen this business model, the
processes of modernization in neighborhood stores are not apparent in bulk.

Another important factor in the consolidation of this business model in the


Colombian economy element is customer financing, in addition to selling small
quantities of products that cater to the daily life of families, neighborhood shops
offer credit to their customers, unfortunately the registration of these obligations is
crudely and logging tools used do not guarantee proper treatment of the
information provided.

Today many stores in neighborhoods do not have tools that enable them to lead an
orderly registration and consolidated credit sales and cash of food and groceries,
also take control inventory levels which rotates in the line of business.

That is why we ask, is it possible to develop a tool to capture sales data, accounts
receivable and inventory for neighborhood shops?

We believe that it is possible to develop a comprehensive solution that contributes


to the modernization of local shops and systematization of sensitive data
generated daily and are of vital utility for decision-making.

It wants to offer as a solution a product that is responsible for capturing sales


records that are recorded daily, this system also capture inventory of merchandise
for sale, its value costing and selling prices to establish by reports gross margin
operating in the time period by the end user set
PROJECT JUSTIFICATION

According to recent studies Fenalco, in Colombia 54% of people prefer to buy in a


store, not a supermarket. The director of economic studies Fenalco Rafael Spain
responds to Money magazine as follows: "There are several reasons why
Colombians still prefer neighborhood stores are psychologists of the poor, because
he listens to all problems for consumers, act police because they realize the
strange people in the neighborhoods, bankers remain poor because trust and pay
".

This is largely due to the adaptability that has this format business that has
managed to survive crisis, openings and other adverse movements in the economy
in recent years adapting to the needs of its customers.
Strategies superstores are focusing on the penetration of neighborhoods to expand
its niche and gain a greater share of this, which is why they are buying retail
businesses and implement formats such as "Express Success" himself and with
the development of own brands, adapt the presentation of the products distributed
by copying the formats of the stores.

As discussed above, the main producers of food and groceries have given
significant support when it comes to training and training for storekeepers on
important issues such as quality, merchandising and service culture, networks as
Fenalco has also joined this type of initiatives Fenaltiendas program which aims to
train the storekeeper on business issues so you can compete in an increasingly
demanding market.

Despite these initiatives are important, even neighborhood shops do not have the
training or tools to manage the information generated in the course of business,
even cases where the shopkeeper does not know are presented exactly as sells
daily, what percentage rotate the products it sells, which is the volume decline in
inventories among other useful variables for decision making.

In addition to this, many of the sales made by the storekeeper neighborhood are on
credit, we found this approach an opportunity for improvement to the extent that
the vast majority of shopkeepers registered their accounts receivable in notebooks
without a defined methodology or standard for the provision of records, creating
risks regarding the quality and reliability of the data, this situation creates an
obvious advantage from a neighborhood store and supermarkets seeking to enter
the local market.

Empiricism that usually prevails in the business district reduces their real
competitiveness and growth chances against a phenomenon that is becoming
widespread in the country as it is the entry of large surface areas popular with
small but well-organized stores.
In order to reduce somewhat the gap between local businesses and supermarkets
in the management of product information from their daily operations is proposed
to create software that capture credit sales and cash and inventory for
neighborhood shops with this tool it is intended that the storekeeper to systematize
their operations and can meet real-time operating margins product of exploitation
corporate purpose of your business.

By being able to systematize the data generated by your business, the storekeeper
neighborhood is better able to compete against models of larger and more
technically advanced business, we believe that if adequate data management with
the characteristics of each business comparative advantages combined, the
storekeeper you can develop a sustainable competitive advantage over time that
will allow you to grow in the market
