B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Provides Flexible Stock Counting Software for Brill Shoe Industries
Company’s BOS ID software used across the Brill chain in 150 stores of Gali, Nine West and Solog
Rishon Letzion, Israel – January 18, 2010 - B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. (“BOS” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BOSC) today announced that it has completed a project to provide Brill Shoe Industries Ltd. (“Brill”) with software to manage its inventory counting at its stores across the country. Brill is Israel’s largest shoe company, with a retail chain of 150 stores under the brand names Gali, Nine West and Solog.
BOS provided Brill with its BOS ID software platform and mobile handhelds and barcode printers from Intermec, enabling Brill’s staff to effectively conduct inventory counts at each store. Using the handhelds and the BOS ID software, stock counting managers have an efficient, automatic tool to analyze discrepancies and view the progress of the count, stated Maya Rantzer, Director of Operations for Brill.
“BOS ID has brought us tremendous cost savings, in the amount of hundreds of thousands of dollars,” she added, explaining that previously the chain had to outsource its stock counting and fees were charged per item. “With BOS ID, we can conduct stock counting ourselves, which makes a tremendous difference.”
The BOS ID software was also chosen for its flexibility and scalability, a key requirement for the fast- changing needs in the retail industry. When the system first went live, it included 110 of Brill’s stores, and since then Brill has added another 40 stores to the system.
Yuval Viner, BOS CEO, said: “BOS ID is a powerful platform that can be used across a wide range of industries. We are pleased to see Brill reaping so many benefits from our software and I am expecting more organizations to use BOS ID for stock counts.”
