What is the best stock control and inventory software to use for a chain of auto spares shops with rfid tag support

Hi Experts,

My client has a large chain of auto spares shops and they need a new system to use for stock control and inventory management.  They would like to link all stores to the one system and have been tasked to find the ideal system that can be updated in real-time.  Also if possible, rfid tag support.  This is a huge project, and I will rely on the experts before I choose which solution to go for.  They have 5 warehouses of spares, and thousands of products, at present they are using quickbooks but are not using it properly.

QuickBooks (I use it a lot) is too small for this.

Have you looked at JDA Software?  www.jda.com. I have implemented that for a chain of over 100 photo retail stores with complete inventory control.  It is a very complete system.

Also go to http://landing.business-software.com/top-15-supply-chain-vendors-v3.php?track=1761&traffic=GoogleSearch&keyword=jda%20software&gclid=CK2Ku63EsbQCFYs7MgodOnwA0Q

and fill out the form for other business software choices.

Interesting!

And thanks, had a look at the report and also at JDA, I think JDA seems to be what I should I go for, how lond did it take you to implement the system?  And how did you go about rolling out the system, billing etc.  BE grateful for support on this venture, as its something I will be focusing on in 2013 in my country, huge market available in Zambia.

I have a very large roll-out with some significant inventory complications, so it took 7 or 8 months to get it going. But once going, it worked reliably for years. I put it in a while back, and it is still running.  I had staff to assist with the roll-out and used JDA services as well, so it was expensive (very large roll-out).
