Franchises & Buying Groups
Franchising is all about empowering the individual and leveraging their enthusiasm for the greater good of the group. But all too often franchise software systems fall short.
esuite is different! It has a powerhouse of built-in features specifically designed for franchises and buying groups and the flexibility to really deliver on this promise.
First of all, esuite is a true multi entity accounting system. This means (if desired) you can provide your franchisees with a total accounting solution that has a live feedback to your consolidated system.
But the flexibility of the system is what sets esuite in a league of its own. Consider that all of the options below can be turned on or off or be configured to your requirements:
Provide separate databases for each franchisee or run all franchisees out of a single consolidated database or both.
And deploy these databases anywhere you want to – in a data centre, your office, at the branches – anywhere.
Set up regional consolidated databases for area branch mangers
Provide real-time off-site backup for all databases (even multiple offsite backups)
Enforce all transactions to be consolidated to head office or allow some transactions to be posted to the franchisee only or franchisor only
Fully automate B2B processes between franchisor and franchisee for inventory transfers and/or B2B sales and purchases
Transfer inventory at cost or sell inventory at a mark up
Provision for consignment inventory with full accountability
Unlimited price bands and currencies
Provide centralised General Ledger codes or allow the franchisee to run their own GL
Provide centralised management of stock and/or pricing
Allow for franchisee to set and manage their own pricing
Allow for franchisee to create local stock codes for items only they sell
Every franchise has a different structure and it is this difference that provides the competitive advantage. Whatever your franchise structure, esuite has the flexibility to provide an optimal solution that leverages your all-important competitive advantage.
