I have been previously working for a garment retail shop for almost a year during my university days. It has been more than a decade since then that I have finally landed a job as a department manager in a similar company that handled outsourcing and purchasing. Based on my previous experiences, I have always considered having the right equipment and tools to be the key factor in being able to maximize productivity. At the end of every business day, sales output was the only clear gauge of performance.
We have to admit that things were a lot different years back and that the system then was a lot different as how things are being run within today’s organizations. Everything is kept as accurate as possible with the help of your basic auditing which are filed in computers which are hooked up by a network. Discrepancies are almost at all times avoided due to this, thus creating almost error-free information. I have actually been amazed when our company’s retail department decided to upgrade the present barcode scanners to more complex ones but still retained its user-friendly features. I was informed later on that it had internals that were more dependable when it came to durability. In this case, the purchase was definitely a practical one.
