York footwear company with over 100 UK stores plans expansion of 120 additional stores and 350 concessions internationally
Pavers Shoes has become the first foreign single-brand retailer to be allowed to set up wholly owned stores in India. Pavers Shoes uses Eurostop’s Head Office retail management system e-rmis to manage live sales and stocks linked to its ecommerce business shoe-shop.com and Eurostop’s e-pos across its 100 UK stores. Pavers England, a joint venture with Foresight Group, plans expansion in India of its existing 70 department store concessions, opening 120 new retail stores and a further 280 concessions over the next two years. The proposal was approved following the Indian government’s decision to ease restriction on foreign retailers owning more than 51% of their shops.
Currently Pavers Shoes pools its stock across its website and store’s, with prices the same for all outlets. Stock levels are managed on the website using Eurostop’s system and visitors to the online store only see those items that are in stock. In addition, Paver’s Area Managers have web based access to the central database for sales details, helping them monitor branch performance. This enables them to compare the performance of the branches and take remedial action if required, moving best sellers to meet local customer preferences and demand.
Stuart Paver, Managing Director of Pavers said; “We are very proud to be the first company in the world to receive the Indian Government’s agreement to own 100% of its own retail stores in India. Our investment in Eurostop’s systems over ten years ago has supported our fast growth both in the UK and now with our International business. We are delighted to be trail blazing a path in what will be the most dynamic retail market in the world over the next decade.”
Phillip Moylan, Sales & Marketing Manager at Eurostop said; “Eurostop’s systems underpin the foundations for a successful retail business. By capturing sales at till point and providing up to the minute stock records, retailers can analyse sales data and react quickly to customer demand. Maintaining cost efficient stock levels and using data to support business decisions ensures a profitable bottom line that can sustain business growth.”
