Issues facing companies with churn operations include fraudulent activities such as stealing products, fraudulent sales proceeds, and increased work hours. Additionally, there is the problem that complaints received at a store are difficult to reach the headquarters, as they affect the store’s evaluation. Therefore, Gulf CSM provides basic functions essential for store management such as sales management, product/inventory management, attendance/shift management, etc. as an all-in-one package, and visualizes various management figures in real time.
