Online Calendar for Retail



One of the key operational challenges a retail organization faces is ensuring consistent execution across stores. Today, many retailers distribute key dates for events and promotions through a manual, labor intensive process. As a result, calendar administrators spend unnecessary time managing and distributing updates to stores and store managers are rarely certain of how current their schedule is. The Online Calendar for Retail (from Akona Systems) provides retailers with an easy-to- use calendaring solution for accelerating and simplifying the event management process across stores. The end result is a more accurate, timely, and eficient calendar management process. I had an opportunity to view a demo by Akona and was pretty impressed by their Sharepoint based solution.
