Vogue Professional

A multi-module management system designed by Dimensional Business Solutions for distribution/wholesale trade and retail trade companies.

About Vogue Professional

Vogue Professional is a software solution for independent retailers and wholesalers, specifically those selling soft goods. It includes point of sale, inventory management, warehouse, distribution center, customer account management, order processing, e-commerce, data-mining, advanced reporting, and more.

Itýs real-time software that integrates all areas of a retail/wholesale business into one, complete system. This means that, as sales are made and merchandise is received, the new information is available instantly across the entire store or chain. Errors can be corrected and changes put into effect immediately.

Vogue Professional has features that really help a soft goods retailer operate more effectively and profitably. One example is the four dimensional matrix pricing that flows throughout our entire system. This lets clothing, shoe, and furniture stores manage their inventory with a greater degree of control.

This software is also customizable. If you want changes made to the system, we can probably accommodate you. Just ask!

Each of these product types can be set up for many locations and are tracked in real-time. This means that thereýs no delay between locations.

The following inventory reports are standard with the system:

  • Inventory Value Report

One of the key features for the shoe and clothing sector is the sizing matrix. This matrix allows you to set up three key elements of a product, such as color, size and width. The matrix is not limited; each style/product can have its own matrix.

If you are dealing with European and North American sizing, you can display both on your barcode tickets. This matrix design flows throughout the entire system.

Each cell in the product matrix will track costing and pricing information, on hand and on order information, as well as the taxing, inventory movement, supplier codes and barcoding information.

For example, your business would be able to track which sizes, colors, and widths are selling and which are not. This feature will greatly improve how you do your purchasing.

Special Orders

Specialty retailers such as furniture stores typically have a show room and only stock a small sample of the total items they carry. Most of their goods are special order due to their complicated nature. A custom table, for instance, could have a large number of variables, such as finish, leg, top, stain, cushions and fabric.

Vogue gives you the power to take these orders and process them from start to finish. The Point of Sale module lets you create the orders. The Purchase Order system then creates a PO based on the Special Order. The Receiving system informs the Customer system as each customerýs order is received, and, finally, the POS module takes the final payments.

The Special Order and the Purchase Order systems are tied very closely together. Information passes between these two modules so you have all the information available when your customer inquires about their order.
