The Futura Group of companies - Dedicated Retail Specialists

The Futura group of companies has been active in retail since 1975 and has been specialized in software for 'lifestyle retail' since 1981 - more than 30 years of experience from which our users can benefit!  There are currently more than 35,000 FuturERS installations worldwide running our enterprise retail software.

Futura is specifically developed for multi site specialty retailers, in over 30 countries worldwide. Futura was launched in 1992 as one of the first fully integrated retail management systems. We took our experience from the a custom project with a large international retailer, and packed this into an off the shelf system that manages the complete life cycle of a retailer's business, from pre-season Open to Buy planning right through to advanced in-season automated merchandise management, planning and allocation, inventory replenishment, and more.

Our understanding of the retail cycle is second to none. This has significant benefits as our tools recognize that 'lifestyle' retailers have many seasonal peaks which require precise action to maximize the opportunities. Futura assists to maximize the opportunities by guiding merchant with a very high degree of precision. This guidance can be applied at the head office level, across all branches, or by the individual franchisee owners in a franchise environment.

During these tough economic times, we help retailers turn this to their advantage, by increasing sales, growing market share and re-engaging customers to maximize sales. loyalty, and profits. By getting back to basics - improving performance, increasing efficiencies and cutting costs, retailers that use Futura solutions are adding value and even growing.

A retail management system that only examines company results retrospectively is of little use for retailers – especially on the fast moving LifeStyle Retail sector.

Today, FuturERS is one of the most affordable, proven and reliable solutions available. Despite being so simple to use, it can analyze profits and fine tune promotional activity, yet be rapidly deployed to meet the most demanding timescales.  As well as offering you a sophisticated POS system, Futura helps to target shrinkage, balance stock levels to free up capital, avoid stock-outs, profile customers to build loyalty to give you a rapid return on investment, and much more ...
