Canadian footwear chain The Shoe Company has deployed Opterus Inc's store operations software to all 65 of its shops to automate communications, messaging and operational compliance.

The Store Ops-Center software replaces internal e-mail and paper-based methods of communicating with store-level employees.

It provides an "eye-in-the-sky" view of store operations through an on-demand retail portal that ensures message delivery and verification of operational compliance issues.
"Most retail software projects are very demanding on internal resources and take time to implement," said  Lewis Feinstein, VP operations, The Shoe Company.

"It took only days to plan and go live with Store Ops-Center and our employees love using it because it's easy, and it works well while greatly streamlining our store operations."
