Omni-channel retail management system that makes selling, inventory management and accounting easier
Brightpearl is inventory management and real-time accounting for omni-channel retailers.

For the first time, online retail spend in the UK exceeded the £100 billion mark in 2014 according to IMRG. The figure of £104bn represented growth of 14% compared to 2013 – with online retail predicted to reach £116bn in 2015.
There is little doubt that technology has fundamentally changed the way retailers do business today. More and more are having to operate across multiple sales channels to remain competitive: multiple ecommerce websites; bricks and mortar shops; pop-up stores; mail order; eBay; and Amazon all play a part.
As each order comes in from each channel, retailers need to be able to process them, reconcile inventory, manage deliveries and transfer information to an accounting system. They will need to know what products they have in stock, how many and how fast those products are being sold so that the correct replacement stock can be ordered with suppliers.
With every new sales channel, the complexity increases. That’s when Brightpearl comes in.
Brightpearl exists to help multi-channel retailers accelerate their growth and profits. Using Brightpearl’s multi-channel retail management system retailers can manage orders, inventory, customer data and accounting in a single, reliable retail management system. Brightpearl provides real-time reports on inventory, cash flow, profitability by SKU and channel, customer purchase behaviour and more.
