London (United Kingdom), 27 April 2016 - UK Fashion retailer The White Company has recently upgraded its in-store inventory system to the latest generation ZetesAthena In-Store Management solution. Their fast growing network of stores called for improved stock visibility. With the latest version of ZetesAthena, based in the cloud, The White Company’s management team can now access the information in real-time, anywhere and at any time.

The White Company is a specialised high street fashion and homeware retailer with stores located across the UK. They utilise the ZetesAthena In-Store Management solution for wall to wall stock auditing, to ensure its assets can be accurately recorded. With a growing number of shops, having real-time visibility on stock in the different branches was crucial. The latest generation cloud-based ZetesAthena solution is the perfect fit for The White Company’s needs. Equipped with mobile terminals, store staff scan the items and the information is immediately available into the company’s ERP system. The management now has real-time access to stock levels from any location and at any time.

ZetesAthena is a modular SaaS In-Store Mobility Solution which enables omni-channel retailers to run different core applications on a single platform: from receiving goods, stock checking, price management, inventory management and Click and Collect enablement through to returns management. Using the MCL™ Mobility Platform, a cloud-based Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP), all these applications can be run, deployed and managed centrally without costly IT infrastructure. Regardless of the OS or device type, applications are built once and deployed to as many devices as needed. This removes the need for costly and time-consuming (re)development and testing, future-proofing companies’ mobile infrastructure.

“As a growing retailer we required the latest stock management solution that would give us real-time visibility on our stock levels. ZetesAthena being a cloud-based solution, it fulfilled all our needs for seamless communication between our local stores and our central system”, says Colin Blake, Head of Loss Prevention at The White Company. “Also, because ZetesAthena is a modular solution, we will be able to add new functionality in a very agile way, guaranteeing the sustainability of our investment”, concludes Colin.
