This, Mr. Njama explains will reduce the blame game that the security back up as well as the business will be subjected to in the event of a disaster.

Although not alarming, it is an issue that everyone needs to be aware of. Owners of all types of businesses are immune to this threat. In fact, they have often become a prime target and consequently providing an opportunity to protect themselves accordingly.

Threats Amidst all these, Mr. Njama notes the need to create awareness that security is not a costly investment as many perceive it to be. He singles out that while many medium to large enterprises and especially those operating in ‘risky’ businesses tend to invest heavily in security solutions, a large number of Kenyans are not bothered even though the company’s solutions cut across the board.

ecurity is a vital consideration in all aspects of people’s lives; businesses and households have constantly prioritized this issue leaving nothing to chance however; the rising insecurity incidences are a sad reality among Kenyans. Today, more than ever, there are unfortunately greater threats to both people and property.

Threats to business security can come in all forms and may include anything from fraud, burglary, fire, vandalism and terrorist threats. While a comprehensive insurance policy will help should the worst happen, proactive strategies should be put in place to minimize threats to security occurring. It is such risks that have provided Security World Technology Limited an opportunity to counter by offering businesses as well as households’ security and safety solutions. “What started as a small business enterprise a decade and a half ago has grown tremendously over the years becoming the leading importer, distributor and provider of reliable, cost effective security solutions in the region,” explains Karanja Njama, Managing Director, Security World Technology Limited (SWTL). Today, SWTL stocks a wide range of world class products and security solutions backed by unrivalled technical and sales support, product training and value added services to ease one’s business concerns. The company’s strength is in the area of closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs), Intruder Alarm, Access Control, Safety and Fire-fighting as well as Fire Detection, Alarm systems, Metal Detectors & Scanners. “We also organize regular usage and installation trainings; our consumers’ have the opportunity to enroll their engineers as well as marketing and sales people to our unique trainings,” he explains. This, he says, helps our consumers to learn the techniques of going about/using the acquired solution. We source globally from reputed and leading manufacturers in USA, UK, Israel, and Asia (China, Malaysia, South Korea and Taiwan). Through this, users are kept abreast on how to use and install the product taking into consideration that most of these products are not locally manufactured. About life and not cost While he notes that the uptake of such solutions has been on the rise, he is categorical

that people need to get out of the notion that such investments tags along a high cost. The company is able to provide affordable up to date pocket friendly solutions. “Thanks to technology, a customer is able to integrate various security aspects in stages thus he will not have to do everything at once,” he explains. This means, for instance, a customer could start by investing in a CCTV system and based on his financial capabilities, scales up on the rest of the solutions as time goes by. In a nut shell, the integration of the various systems can be done in phases allowing flexibility. Upcoming business centers/buildings as well as existing ones can take advantage of this integrated security solution. From a retail perspective, Mr. Njama advises that investing in a CCTV is not only vital but a value addition to the business. Retailers who opt to employ more floor managers/ supervisors to curb vices such as shop-lifting and other disaster will only need a CCTV thus cutting on operational costs. Another important aspect to invest in is that of firefighting, fire detection, safety and alarm. “As opposed to theft, fire is the biggest danger,” he adds. It is important for retailers to install systems that pre-warn against such while aiming at saving life and property. Thirdly, a retailer should not ignore the anti-theft solutions which Mr. Njama notes that are aimed at minimizing theft at the exit as well as at the warehouse level. The MD reveals that as the advancement of technology continues to take center stage among businesses, SWTL is taking advantage of the changes by offering customers innovative solutions. The company is able to provide chief security managers in businesses an opportunity to own the whole day to day security/control process. This means that even with the presence of backup security, a business could also invest in their own back up in the form of technology whose access and control lies with the chief security person.

On the other hand, back up security guards, a common feature in most public places in Kenya ought to be trained on how to use some of the gadgets. Today, nearly all public places have invested in the hand-held security frisking machines; however the concern has always been whether the gadgets help in detecting any security threats. The thorny issue of sub-standard and counterfeit products remains a challenge to many a security solutions provider. The company has continued to curb this through training even though the MD wishes for more to be done at by the standardization bodies as well as policy level to incorporate security requirements in the building code. To further deepen the take up and appreciation of security products among the domestic clientele, Mr. Njama is proposing to partner with retailers by coming up with a security section in supermarkets where some of the products can be displayed and sold to shoppers. He notes that the recent evolution into departmental stores is one such opportunity to explore. SWTL is known to honor the warranty period with regards to our products. Our products carry warranties of between one to two years,” he comments. In 2012, the company was ranked 32 under the Kenya’s Top 100 midsized companies Survey (‘Top 100 Survey’), an initiative of KPMG Kenya and Nation Media Group. The Survey seeks to identify Kenya’s fastest growing medium sized companies in order to showcase business excellence and highlight some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurship stories. SWTL has gone from strength to strength in building a dynamic distribution network covering Kenya (Nairobi-Head Office), Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda that supplies dealership and service providers across the entire East and Central Africa Region.

RETAIL MANAGEMENT

iVend Retail TO REACH DESTINATION OMNICHANNEL One of the most common myths surrounding the modern retail environment is this: omnichannel=online shopping. And vice versa. There are some good reasons for this misconception. During the past two decades, most online retailers were quick to embrace emerging technologies to get to know their customers more intimately — often in ways their brick-and-mortar counterparts couldn’t consistently match. These investments have enabled the delivery of more personalized customer service, made transactions smoother and more efficient, and increased customer loyalty, all leading to repeat business for the retailer, further contributing to the continual surge in online sales. Yet despite the e-commerce explosion, the physical store remains the center of the consumer shopping experience. Industry observers believe it will be the most profitable retail channel for the foreseeable future. While profits certainly top the priority list of every retailer, improving the customer experience remains a close second. (And the two objectives are rarely mutually exclusive.) When e-commerce first came about, many traditional retailers were resistant, or ignored to see it as meaningful online business opportunity. As history shows, this was a tremendous error and a major missed opportunity. Now, the Store happens to be the focal point of Retail again, In the same way that offline brands resisted the first wave of e-commerce, many digital brands are now mistakenly ignoring the unique benefits of the offline retail channel. This is a mistake too.

Today, the power has dramatically shifted to the consumer, who has greater and faster information access than ever before. E-commerce, once weband desktop-centric, has morphed into mobile commerce thanks to the proliferation of smartphones and tablets owned by millions of consumers worldwide. With information essentially everywhere online, consumers have greater knowledge and exponentially more choices when shopping — both online and in-store. Therefore, retailers must compete not just on price and great customer service, but on the best overall experience across both channels, particularly in-store. Shoppers want an omnichannel experience; our research shows that more than half believe it would be helpful if retailers had one view of them across all channels. iVend Retail is the most advanced omnichannel solution available to retailers. It enables 360 degree visibility of your inventory and customer activity, in order to: •

Integrate online and offline shopping, allowing customers to research, buy and - if necessary - return goods anywhere

Sell more inventory at full price, increasing margin and reducing clearance markdowns

Create multichannel loyalty programs that incentivize customers equally, wherever they shop

Increase the product knowledge, recommendations and guidance available to store associates

1,000+ retailers in 46 countries are already using iVend Retail to give customers a consistent brand experience, and achieve higher full price sales with existing inventory levels

CUSTOMER SERVICE

Customer service during election year

D

uring electioneering period, our customers become sensitive and react to innocent or common answers from the supermarkets’ staff in ways that amaze and even shock them. Usually there is so much tension and hostility that staff members are caught up in the middle.

In many instances we have witnessed staff expressing opinions as individuals, which leads to the outlet being branded by consumers as belonging to one camp or another. This kind of branding sometimes leads to serious loss of business and even affects the staff in the communities where they live. In the year of the constitutional referendum, 2005, two opposing camps were represented by very common fruits in the supermarket: orange and banana. In one instance, in a region where the “BANANA” was dominant, it just happened to be out of stock. When asked for bananas, an innocent shop attendant simply replied, “Bananas are out of season here”. Unfortunately, the interpretation by the consumer was on a political level, meaning that this outlet was not supporting the ‘BANANA’ campaign. That outlet was nearly set ablaze but for quick intervention of the proprietor who somehow managed to offload a whole lorry of bananas and freely distribute them to the people milling around. Similar action took place in an ORANGE dominated area where an attendant

suggested that the consumer take a BANANA instead. This one was almost lynched, only to be saved by a politician who happened to be shopping in the outlet at the time! Customer service has to respond to the environment and current social climate in order to satisfy the discerning customers that visit our outlets on a daily basis. Furthermore, product stocking and range – which form a significant part of customer service, have to take into account the season and area of operation. The staff has to be disciplined not to give opinions in sensitive and controversial matters, lest they bring unnecessary conflict, loss of business and hostilities in the communities around them.

Of course if the outlet owners are publicly inclined to a particular camp, then that is different because then everybody would know their stand. Customer service staff and indeed all members of staff who interact with customers have to be very conversant with current affairs and where possible, management should provide direction in the form of periodic briefs and advisories. This is not only confined to politics but extends to sports, religion and all other aspects that directly or indirectly relate to your consumers. This year our country is gearing up for the 2017 elections and already the political temperatures are rising. Your members of staff obviously support one of the parties and occasionally comparative arguments develop amongst them. This should not be encouraged. Train them to be professional in handling customers and not allow themselves to be pulled into taking sides. In the end, we are one people and taking sides this early may just lead to economic alienation in future. I am not advocating stifling of freedom and human rights, but just writing as a businessman interested in growth. By Jasper Ouma, Chief Trainer - DMS Ltd

RETAIL SECURITY

How to Prevent Shoplifting S hrinkage, or retail theft, can have a serious impact on your bottom line. Goods worth millions are stolen from retailers every day. And while all businesses are susceptible to shoplifting, some like clothing, book and jewelry sellers are more susceptible to the vice.

Teaching your staff to spot and handle shoplifters properly is a crucial deterrent, which you can implement and design tactics to help prevent stealing. Here are 10 of the best ways your retail small business can deter shoplifters today: 1.

Maximize Visibility: Keeping an eye on merchandise is the first step in loss prevention. Place shorter displays close to the register and taller displays near the perimeter of the store so all merchandise is completely visible from your perch. Use mirrors to eliminate any blind spots, and be sure to keep your store neat and tidy, so employees can tell at a glance if something is missing or out of place.

other customers, wander aimlessly around the store, hang out in hardto-monitor areas, and repeatedly leave and return.

Share Your Shoplifting Policy: Define your shoplifting policy and communicate it to your customers with posted signs. Posting statements such as, “Shoplifters Will Be Prosecuted,” can act as an effective deterrent. Have Visible Security Systems: Whether you use security mirrors, faux cameras, motion sensors or security guards, make sure your security systems are visible to customers. Knowing you have security measures in place will stave off shoplifters.

when they come and go. Make sure registers are manned at all times and employees know to keep a watchful eye on customers. 6.

Lock It Up: Protect merchandise by monitoring and limiting access to display cases and dressing rooms. Requiring employee assistance with certain products provides an extra line of defense. Relocate Your Register: When cash registers are next to the entry and exit points in your store, customers are forced to walk past employees

7.

INSIGHT RETAIL #13 | MAY - JULY, 2016

Be Aware: Employees should be alert at all times in your store, especially during opening, closing and restocking hours. Know which merchandise is most appealing to shoplifters (hint: small and/or expensive items) and place it in prominent areas, where employees can see it. Know How to Spot a Shoplifter: Certain behaviors should put your employees in alert mode. Watch for customers who appear nervous, stare at employees or

8.

Have a Presence: Greet every customer and offer help throughout the shopping process. Not only will your presence remind potential shoplifters they’re being watched, but your vigilance will give you the added opportunity to track merchandise, especially items that go in and out of a dressing room.

9.

Implement a Bag-Check Policy: Don’t allow customers to bring bags and backpacks into the dressing room area, as they can be used to hide merchandise. Welcome customers to check bags with an employee before they enter.

10. Inspect All Purchases: At the register, take a minute to doublecheck merchandise, like purses and baskets that can be used to store and steal additional items. Even if you’ve got a customer making a purchase, there’s still the chance an extra item or two ended up inside. While it may not be possible to completely eliminate shoplifting, you can certainly make it more difficult for wouldbe thieves to rob you. Follow these tips for store design and customer service to make your retail store less attractive to shoplifters. Courtesy to: http://www.staples.com/


BUSINESS TRENDS

Retail industry going social F acebook, Twitter and Instagram are some of the most popular social media platforms in Kenya at the moment, thanks to the surge in smartphones as well as affordable internet connectivity.

Users can now post and comment on any photo, video or just a status update on their timelines, consequently building conversations and forums. Unlike in the past where they were used to stay connected with friends and family as well as spread the word, social media has become a very powerful tool that any retailer can take advantage of.

through these buy buttons.

Online Promotions Kilimall, one of Kenya’s online marketplaces, recently ran a major promotion that offers up to 70% discount and vouchers on mobile phone accessories and smartphones.

By July 2015, Facebook had began testing the ‘Shop within Pages’ initiative which allowed retailers to set-up mini e-commerce sites within the Facebook app and showcase their products directly on their pages. The ability to add the ‘Buy’ button means the whole purchase process can take place without having to leave Facebook’s website.

Jumia Kenya, on the other hand, ran their second Mobile Week Reloaded promotion that offered discounts of up to 50% on certain phones from Infinix, Wiko, Tecno, Injoo and X-Tigi between 30th May to 3rd June 2016. Both promotions utilized Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to spread the word on the products offered and also had links that redirected a consumer to their main websites. Customers had a chance of inquiring about the products on the same Facebook and Twitter pages. OLX Kenya, another leading online shopping store, has also provided a platform where different entrepreneurs can showcase their products with an option of direct purchase on their website. With both images and texts, one can perfectly describe their product, the condition they’re in, price as well as terms of delivery. Customer inquiries and negotiations on such products are facilitated through OLX Facebook and Twitter handles, with staff ready to address any issue.

Retailers are hence urged to build online presence for their own retail units, regularly posting photos and perhaps videos of the products they have on sale. In-app purchases The ‘Buy’ button, a means by which mobile users can buy directly through the social channel itself, is being adopted and developed by various platforms to allow users make in-app purchases. This feature allows consumers to easily pay for things they happen to see while they’re browsing and interacting on their favorite sites, without being taken away from what they were doing. For retailers and entrepreneurs, this functionality increases their visibility, hence an extended reach in the market. Facebook and Twitter are both testing e-commerce within their applications

The face of e-commerce is rapidly changing into the social sphere as online shopping is now the preferred method of finding and purchasing products. Consumers want more convenience, an adaptable shopping experience that is smooth in all available devices as well as a better engagement through the research-to-purchase process. They want to be shown relevant products and don’t want to be pushed to a sale. This is why retailers and merchants dealing their products through social media should provide high quality and optimized product data that meets the requirements of each platform. It is also important to remember that consumers are looking for simplicity, relevancy, personalization and engagement during their social engagement with retailers.

RISK MANAGEMENT

Curbing retail loss with O

T

he retail market in Kenya is arguably the biggest booster of our economy. However, behind that trail of success lie enormous challenges, the main one being loss. Omega risk management and loss Prevention Company is one such organization that is helping retailers to mitigate their losses. We spoke to Mr. Elijah G. Kamau, the General Manager and gave us the following insights on the retail security and trends.

The major cause of retail loss is through pilferage cascaded by employees and it cuts across all major retail outlets whether multinationals or family owned business. In most scenarios the senior staffs collude to defraud the retail store with the junior staff and the scrupulous suppliers. Shoplifting comes in second and this could either be by the shoppers or the employees. Other common causes of loss include; fraud through fake payment vouchers and currencies, administrative errors among others which can be easily mitigated if proper controls and measures are undertaken by the retail store. With over six years of experience in the market, Omega has mastered the expertise of assisting retailers to control their shrinkage in areas as follows:Retail Loss Prevention Shrinkage control is an enormous issue for businesses and leakage occurs at store level and through the supply chain. OMEGA service in Retail Loss Prevention covers every area where shortages occur including; manifest errors, warehousing, transport, retail operations, internal theft and shoplifting. OMEGA develops customized shrinkage control programs that utilize physical staff and other measures to reduce shrinkage and protect profits. We believe that a solid loss prevention program is a critical component of a company’s success and is aware that no two businesses are alike. We meet with our clients and potential client’s leadership group and customize a program and/ or solutions that fit seamlessly into the culture of your organization. At OMEGA our Retail Loss Prevention solutions mainly focus on the loss of merchandise and cash. Our Loss Prevention Staff perform functions in the following areas: • • • • • • • • •

Receiving bay Dispatch section Staff entrance control Floor walking CCTV control Front end control Security screening Cashier services Packaging services

Mr. Elijah G. Kamau, General Manager Omega Risk Management

“Loss Prevention is the ability to identify the potential for a loss to occur at your business or property; we are committed to assisting our customers in controlling their losses through an aggressive risk detection and preventive program” “Retail Loss is about 10% globally and should be mitigated below 2% of total revenue” • • • • • •

Before deployment, OMEGA’s staff’s receives specific customer service training and are inducted into the retail environment. Our staff is trained to take a friendly and helpful customer oriented approach in their interactions with customers while remaining focused on identifying security breaches and protecting against loss to ensure a positive shopping experience. To this end, we have a number of integrated services which include:

RETAIL TIPS

Strategies to Boost Your Retail Sales

S

elling in today’s retail market has become tougher, as consumers continue being savvier and better informed unlike the recent past. Although marketing can impact the number of people that walk into your store, it is certainly irrelevant to entirely focus on new clients, because, your sales projections do not solely depend on the number of shoppers who show up at your doorstep. There is an abundance of techniques that can enable retailers meet their target sales and the best approach must capitalize on the shopper who enters the store. For instance, there is need to maximize on the shopper who has entered your store to not only purchase one item but everything he needs. Here are some simple actions that retailers can undertake to increase their revenue. Understand Your Customer It is your business to know what your customers needs are at various moments. Be it, during Christmas, back to school period or seasonal timings. This will make it possible for you to give them what they want because customers determine your success. You can do this by engaging them to know their shopping experience either through, feedback forms or suggestions. This will in turn influence them to continue shopping at your store because they believe they have made an impact in developing the store.

Get acquainted With the Industry’s Trends You can gain the greatest competitive edge if you have an intimate knowledge of your business. Commitment to learn about new technology, trends, and the best performance practices, will set you above

the pack. Having a clear vision and well established goals, also push you towards success. Train Your Staff Exceptional shopping experiences begin with exceptional employee skills. It is very important for your staff to know how to handle people immediately as they walk in. They must be able to engage the customers genuinely as they identify their needs and listen to their concerns. When you build rapport and connect with their customers, it keeps them from browsing for better deals and you will have created a relationship that makes it easier for you to suggest adds-on because you are trusted. Sell Value Although it is easy to mark down items and steer shoppers towards a cheapest option, the cheapest option at times is not the

shopper’s best option. However, with proper understanding of the products, employees can re-establish the value of the product in the customer’s mind which could increase sales. Control Your Inventory All retail stores need to manage inventory. This will help to maintain a proper balance between the right amount of merchandise and probable customer demand. Without adequate control, slow moving inventory becomes dated and could be very costly. Have a Customer Loyalty Program Customer loyalty programs increase customer happiness and retention. For example, by using a simple point system, customers work towards attaining a certain amount of points, to redeem their rewards. Sales Promotion Sales promotion is a short term promotional technique designed to increase sales. Customers like it because they feel like they are getting a better deal. This could be a winwin situation with more money at the till by the end of the day. Displays There are a lot of ways your retail store displays can be your silent salesperson. The trick is to make sure your display include some of the basics like: • Changing your displays often - moving them to keep them from getting stale. • Put clear price tags – Make sure all the stock is priced so a customer does not have to necessarily ask.

COVER STORY

REACH YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE AFFORDABLY

Have a Good Relationship with Suppliers The longer a supplier provides a customer, the better their understanding and working relations. This allows for better integration of business which leads to increased efficiency and could reduce internal workloads. Embrace Social Media Social media has become a serious platform for business. It is a low cost channel that can help you build your brand as you drive sales. Up Sell And Cross Sell Up selling and cross selling can really help to bring your numbers up. For instance, shoe shops ask if you will have a particular shoe polish to go with the kind of shoes you have bought. When done properly, up sell adds value to a customer’s experience.

It is important to recognize that what you don’t know can end up costing you money, hurt the odds of success, and greatly reduce the chance of achieving your business goals. Hiring an expert with specialized skills can be the most profitable decision you can make to protect both your business and financial future.

Keep Good Financial Records It is said that, “if you do not know where your money is going, it will soon be gone”. Good financial records are like the instruments of an airplane, they keep you posted on your height, direction and speed. Without them you are flying blind with no controls to guide you to your destination.

RETAIL TRENDS

It’s all about retail trends globally adopting cashless payment systems, there is mutual benefit to the retailer and shopper. It reduces cost by saving on paper-based transactions, helps retailers get paid for their goods and services faster because processing time for cheques and other methods takes longer and increase customer loyalty. Mobile payment platforms like MPESA is transforming the model of trading in retail industry and retailers can use the same platform to receive payment from their customers and also pay their suppliers at the same time

O

ptimizing shoppers’ experience today has become more important than ever and retailers are now spending better part of their time reacting to profound changes throughout the industry. This has reshaped the expectations of consumers and has presented an opportunity for fast-moving, innovative opponents to enter the market, as it is a turning point for retailers who have made consistent development in their operations. Retail analytics Among the transformational trend that is enabling retailers to make important strides is the use of analytics which facilitate for data driven decision making as well as efficiency in the operations of the store. This includes: • Marketing. Gain in-depth customer insight. And use that knowledge to plan and execute more relevant, targeted, personalized customer com¬munications across all channels. • Merchandising. Create accurate merchandise plans that optimize every item across all stores and channels. • Operations. Discover and adopt new and sustainable ways to improve efficiency and effectiveness across all

elements of your operations structure, staff, processes, tools, metrics, etc. • Supply chain. Get the right products to the right locations in the right quantities and at the right time. • Finance. Improve all aspects of your organization’s financial health. Ecommerce Ecommerce has become a necessity for today’s businesses and it is apparent that it is not slowing down any time soon. For shoppers the benefits are plentiful because it saves time, offers a wide range of product selection and allows cost saving on some items. Whereas physical retailers rely on branding and customer relationship, online retailers drive traffic to their retail shops through search engines. Without ecommerce retailers limit their growth as it not only builds your brand but also increases your revenue as you capture new audiences. Payment platforms The future of retail payment is promising as mobile technology plays a bigger role of offering retailers a channel that creates synergy between payments. There are numerous payment platforms and retailers have taken the initiative to give their shoppers optional ways of how they can pay for their purchases. However, beyond the challenges of

Social Networking Apart from using social media to market products, talk to customers and make merchandising decisions. Retailers can use social sites as their selling points. Among retailers who have started using the trend is Nordstrom which is using the Like2Buy platform on instagram. A customer who would like to buy clicks the link which takes her to the retailer’s site, and when she selects an item, the page directs her to the product page where she can find more details and proceeds to checkout. Bulk SMS platform is also another model which can be used on social networks to share the weekend offers among others to their shoppers registered on Loyalty programme among others and can go a higher note event using mobile solution providers to share your message nationally at agreed costs. Corporate Social Responsibility Consumers these days are more drawn to retailers that invest in CSR because they believe they are one with the retailers and the retailer is responsible. CSR should not be viewed as a drain on resources because, it can increase customer retention, enhance a relationship with your shoppers, improve your business reputation as well as generate positive publicity which can increase your investment and funding opportunities. Risk Management Solutions As traders continue to grapple with retail security, there are various organizations that aspire to enable retailers mitigate the vice by providing services to enhance security for the store and to their shoppers.
