WinRetail was good to work with. My client was from a much larger retail operation and started a small chain of women's stores. WInRetail provided them with a great start, although I was engaged to create a data warehouse to be able to do better analytics.
Still, working with their technical staff was easy, and they allowed us to have detailed access to their product to be able to customize to my clients needs.

They have had some difficulty with scaling for a larger operation. When my client needed to make large inventory changes, this meant that the rest of operations needed to stop so that the database could update. This is a challenge when you have multiple staffers that need to make changes to support a price reduction or to receive new merchandise. However, they were willing to continue to evaluate the issues, make process recommendations and to do the updates en masse.

Recommendations

How many different functions will this product support at the same time? How customizable are the reports? Are the reports run against live data or is there a data warehouse function. (Live data takes much longer and if you can get daily reports this is generally better for performance).

Reporting is completely flexible thru the Power Reporter, and can be built to suit your needs :)

Likes Least

If I had to pick at them, I would say the reports only weakness is the fact that most are run on a weekly basis (which is a challenge when looking at certain tables for individual days).

Recommendations

Look at full scope of what they can offer for both brick & mortar and online retail... Need a comprehensive system that can manage both.

It's fairly simple and user-friendly. Also, the ability to be connect remotely is very helpful.

Likes Least

It lacks some analytic capabilities. I believe we do this outside of the system.

Recommendations

I think potential users will have to evaluate this thinking about the needs of their business and make sure they get the right information they are looking for. Also, training a in-house trainer is critical.
