Comments: It's been very good, once we were over the initial learning curve. TRIMS allows us to manage our stock effectively, while giving us a clear picture of how each part of the business is performing by time and by date, 24/7. TRIMS is a very comprehensive piece of software - our advice would be to simplify it, until you learn what it can do, and then increase its footprint in your business in bite size chunks, because once it is something you are familiar with, you'll genuinely wonder how you've ever done without it.

Pros: TRIMS offers us a comprehensive picture of our current stock and of the performance of our business at any given time, now or in the past. It's integrated superbly well with our website, enabling us to immediately stop selling online when we have run out of stock. We would warmly recommend Touch Retail, who have been superb partners from the word go.

Cons: The software is very comprehensive, so it can take some time to get to grips with it, but if you request it, the TRIMS team can simplify your experience so that the system only gives you what you want and need, with the option to improve your user experience as you become more familiar with the platform.

Simon, it's an absolute pleasure to read your comments. The whole reason we develop retail software is to try and make retailers lives easier, so reading reviews like this really makes it all worthwhile. I will ensure the rest of the team read this and thanks for taking the time to comment, and for being so supportive of our efforts.

Comments: You need to have patience and be willing to learn how to use the system but once you know your way around it it's fantastic and i've already recommended it to other retailers.

Pros: The trims back end software has a lot of very useful features and is quite easy to use once you understand the basics. It has a modern look and layout which make it more intuitive to use than other options we looked at before decided to go with Touch Retail.

Cons: While the ticket system for technical issues works well and the team in support work on problems quickly, communication could be improved. The causes of any crashes or faults are never explained, instead just an email saying the ticket has been resolved. This would probably be okay most of the time but often it's for an ongoing issue.

Thanks for the positive review, it is great to hear that you are getting on well with the system, and that it is of real benefit to your business. We take on-board any comments and I will talk to the team about explaining the cause of any issues, should you get any.

Your point about having patience and be willing to learn is very true. Our previous software Rapidstock, was very very easy to use but had limited functionality. TRIMS has been written to do a lot more, and be very flexible, and inevitably that is going to be more difficult to use. But that is what we wan't, a much more powerful system. And I think we have hit the right balance - but we do always keep adding in thing to make it easier.

Thanks again!

TRIMS is helping us to steamline our stock system and give seamless integration to our website.

Comments: We had a very tricky problem for TRIMS to solve as we were merging two businesses together and had two separate stock systems, we were also planning on launching two new websites at the same time. This was a tough situation that TRIMS helped us to resolve. The staff were amazing and helped us through every step of the way. We are now a year into using TRIMS and have got to grips with the system quickly.

Pros: I like the way you can customise the product records to work best for you, giving you a system that is easy to work with. I also like the reporting as it can keep me up to date on sales by brand, department etc.

Cons: The reports take a while to build and ideally could do with being quicker. It can feel like a lot of steps to adjust a record if you need to.

Hi Anna. Thanks very much for taking the time to review our software. Lovely to be working with you and it's great to hear that you are getting real positive benefit from using TRIMS.

We are doing all we can to speed up reporting, it can be difficult with the system being so flexible. But we are making progress. If you are not already scheduling emailed reports, it is worth doing so because you can then have your reports sat in your inbox waiting for you.

Thanks again for the positive comments!

Comments: New features are constantly being introduced to keep up with retailers needs - they developed several new add-ons that we required to enable us to move from our previous stock system with no hardships. We have now integrated our new website with Trims through woo commerce , which couldn't have been simpler! On top of that the level of support that we have from both Touch Retail and The IT Department (Wexford) is second to none.

Pros: Being able to import orders from suppliers directly into Trims, which then sets up both the order & the new products is such a time saver. Bulk editing groups of products, versatility of reports, promotions for tills.. the list of benefits is endless.

Cons: So many features & report options - I don't have enough time to make full use of them!!

Comments: Overall we are able to control stock very well. We can see from the point where it is booked in, to the point where it is sold and everywhere in between. It also allows us to track and report sales of styles across various departments. It integrates well with our online system. The new features being developed constantly are great too. Very much looking forward to using the WMS part of this.

Pros: It is quick and easy to use software for our business. It allows us to control our stock and and report accordingly. It integrates well with our other platforms and there are constantly new developments.

Cons: The reporting is difficult to use sometimes with some settings. Would like more configuration on reports and perhaps integrations with our online platform. Examples include sell through % based on overall stock, perhaps linking with online conversion rates / page views etc, cover required adjustments to fit our business.
