If you own a small to medium scale retail store, chances are you struggle with inventory management, theft, customer retention and a lot of other issues that serve as obstacles to making successful and regular sales.
Ade Olabode knows all about that struggle. Growing, up he spent a lot of his free time helping his mum out in her provision store.
One of the key moments that stands out for me is how she could never get hold of relevant business information she so much needed.
The kind of information his mum really needed included how much she had sold , which days were her best days of sales, stock status, which of her products were best sellers, which of them she should stock more of and if she was making any profit. Basically all the information that would help her run the store smarter. Many retailers in Nigeria have the same problem as Olabode’s mum even today.
Moved by his mum’s needs (she still runs the store to date) and the needs of virtually every retailer in Nigeria, Olabode set out to solve the problem. The solution is PrognoStore. PrognoStore is a point-of-sale software solution that is built for growth and efficiency of small businesses. At its core, PrognoStore is a 3-in-1 solution for sales, inventory and analytics. The idea is to help small businesses work smarter and not necessarily harder.
