By David Rigbye January 19, 2023

What is the biggest challenge you face running your retail stores?

Is it finding the time to visit every single retail location?

Maybe you struggle with a consistent communication method, so all of your staff get the same message.

Perhaps it’s trying to train them in new processes and procedures.

All of these struggles plague retail store owners on a daily basis. But did you know that Operandio has created a retail operations management app solution to help you run your day-to-day operations without having to be everywhere at once?

So how can you use Operandio to run your retail stores without you having to be on-site?

Here’s how it can make your life a lot less stressful.

Run retail stores with Operandio

Train Everyone at Once

Training and upskilling staff can be an expensive exercise. You either have to hire a facilitator to roll it out or make your way to each store to deliver it yourself. However, there is another alternative. Operandio features a Knowledge Base that can house videos, manuals, and other training materials that your workers can access whenever they need a refresher on your store’s policies and procedures.

Create Consistent Processes for All Retail Stores

How many times have you walked into one of your retail stores and found the staff doing things a little differently to your other shopfronts? With Operandio, you can create consistent processes across all of your stores and locations. You can easily update them and let everyone know at once, so you don’t need to send individual emails or messages to your workforce.

Ensure All Tasks are Completed

If you don’t want to keep yourself up at night wondering if the daily tasks got completed, you can use the Operandio app to keep tabs on their progress and get notified once they are finished. You can even set up ad-hoc duties and non-recurring projects to the workflow and ensure they’re finalized to your satisfaction.

Use the shared kiosk application so staff can complete tasks from a shared tablet, without having to use their personal phones while working.

Communicate With Your Entire Workforce

Staying in contact with your retail stores is easy with Operandio’s Communication Hub. You can deliver consistent messaging to your entire workforce, so no one misses out. You’re even able to provide instant feedback to staff, quickly share documents, and receive a confirmation when messages are read, so you’re not left wondering if important information hasn’t been delivered.

Run Your Retail Stores without the Stress

Your customers should be able to walk into any one of your retail stores and receive the same experience every time. Unfortunately, achieving this on your own is almost impossible. You can’t be everywhere at once, and communicating with your entire workforce can be a time-consuming task.

Operandio can help you manage your retail store’s daily tasks, provide employees with the necessary training, and ensure you stay in touch with your staff so they get all the latest updates and receive constructive feedback to keep them performing at their best. The greatest part is that you don’t have to be physically there to achieve this.
