Most Common Challenges Faced In The Retail Sector
Among all the industries today, the retail industry is one of the fastest-growing industries. Retail business has become increasingly popular because of its high revenue ratio and hence more business operators are stepping into this field. However, the retail industry can be challenging to navigate and comes with many conundrums. It is often difficult for retailers to improve both profit margins and market relevance simultaneously. Alternatively, shopaholics or compulsive buyers spend a lot of their time and energy surveying their purchases on the Internet, making them very knowledgeable about their acquisitions. As a result, retailers find themselves in an edgy position as they struggle to survive in the market. Unfortunately, the difficulties don’t end there.
The following lists give an overview of the challenges retailers face in this industry.
India’s retail outlets frequently struggle with adoption, viability, and accessibility. In the recent past, the use of technology is becoming more and more prevalent in day-to-day operations,such as billing, e-payments,auditing, tracking inventories, supply chain management,
Infrastructural and logistical shortcomings
Lack of Trained Resources
It is estimated that retail companies spend more than 7% of their gross revenues on training their employees. Accordingly, industries reported attrition rates of around 50%,which is relatively high when compared
Shortage of Business Logistics Management
Transporting the required products at the right time and place plays a crucial role in any industry. However, in India, there is a shortage of efficient and effective business logistics management or supply chain management.
Complexity in understanding Taxation
India’s tax system is challenging, especially for people who aren’t familiar with it. Each state has its own tax regulations, and it will take a good amount of time and taxation knowledge to get all the appropriate documents. VAT, which was introduced in 2005, has put retailers in a bind because it requires them to collect several octrois creating a hard-time to retailers.
