Card Connection franchisees improve productivity through introduction of electronic hand-held terminals

Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor in the UK and Ireland, has announced that a number of its franchisees have succeeded in increasing their productivity by up to 20% thanks to the introduction of new electronic hand-held terminals which allow stock levels to be calculated automatically on-sight.

Pat Blake, Card Connection franchisee for Dublin, explained, “The new electronic terminals now allow us to record all stock movements automatically. This avoids the need to consolidate and marry-up paper trails in order to produce invoices – these can now be created instantly. This is saving around two days admin per week and means I can now spend that time with my customers and prospecting for new business.”

Commenting on this new device, Robina Every, managing director of Card Connection, said, “Currently, 30% of our franchisees have introduced the hand-held terminals and we are well on target to roll these out to our entire franchisee team by the end of the year. As well as a reduction in admin and the use of paper, the terminals have also allowed us to improve our customer service levels still further as franchisees can produce reports or duplicate invoices instantly, on site if required by a retail manager.”

According to the information provided, Card Connection franchisees place greeting card ranges in retail outlets such as Total, Costcutter, Budgens, Londis, Spar and Shell on a consignment basis. As the Card Connection franchise network is complete in the UK and Ireland, the only opportunities available are purchasing an already-established territory from an existing franchisee.
