<h1>Take Your Store’s Pulse Anyplace, Anytime</h1><!–mep-nl–><p>Edge Pulse is a revolutionary new live feed that updates your store’s key performance indicators on a secure online site—and it’s available only from the Edge Retail Academy. See your sales in real time. Compare them by day, by month, by year. Know when a sale happens, or if your staff is meeting quotas—even when you’re not in the store. Learn what products are trending around the industry. It’s all possible and more with a glance at your smartphone or tablet.</p><!–mep-nl–><h3>Coaching Feature</h3><p>Edge Pulse will now offer a Coaching Feature, Market Trending, Budget Line, Loose Diamond Benchmarking, and Coffee Catalyst. </p><p>The <strong>Coaching Feature</strong> helps store owners and managers coach their staff to reach their full potential and help the store reach its sales goals. It tracks Key Performance Indicators including average staff members’ sales, average items and add-on value per receipt, discounting, how many wish lists they create and wish list items converted to sales. This feature also projects sales based on increased performance.<br /><br /><a href=”http://www.edgeretailacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/coaching.jpg”></a><img src=”http://www.edgeretailacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/sales-plan-contribution.jpg” alt=”sales-plan-contribution” width=”1092″ height=”590″ class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-1015″ /><br />Using the <strong>Market Trending Feature</strong>, a store owner or manager can see how a particular vendor category is trending in sales over a 25-day period, then compare those numbers to that of other anonymous stores on Edge Pulse. Keep up with holiday, vendor, category and monthly trends.</p><p><img src=”http://www.edgeretailacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/market-trending.jpg” alt=”market-trending” width=”1100″ height=”547″ class=”aligncenter wp-image-1008 size-full” /></p><p>The <strong>Budget Line</strong>, which appears on Edge Pulse’s Dashboard, tracks a store’s performance in real time based on an established budget goal. It also tracks daily and monthly progress toward the goal.</p><p>The <strong>Loose Diamond Benchmarking Feature</strong> allows users to see and compare trends specifically for loose diamond sales. The trends can be broken down by color, clarity, and carat weight of the diamonds. Users will be able to compare their loose diamond sales trends to that of other anonymous Edge Pulse users.<br /><br />The new <strong>Coffee Catalyst</strong> feature for the system sends Edge Pulse users an email every morning detailing key store data and activity from the previous day. <br /><br /><img src=”http://www.edgeretailacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Coffee-Catalyst.png” alt=”Coffee Catalyst” width=”790″ height=”832″ class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-1010″ /></p><h3>Pricing</h3>Edge Pulse Full: $195 per month<br />Edge Pulse Plus: $395 per month<br />Edge Pulse with Mentoring: $995 per month<br />You can try Edge Pulse for free with Edge Pulse Lite! <br />Click Here to View the <a href=”http://www.edgeretailacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/EP-Features-Check-List-Dec-2015-DAVID.pdf”>Edge Pulse Pricing & Details</a><br /><br />Below are several existing features of Edge Pulse, which can all be tracked in real time:<br /><ul><li>Sales, Gross Profit, and Inventory Budgets</li><li>Sales Associate Module – tracks key performance indicators in real time for individual sales associates</li><li>Rolling 12-Month Graphs</li><li>Gross Profit Graph Option</li><li>Match Sales to Edge Layaways at Pickup</li><li>Link Back to Reports in The Edge</li><li>Monthly KPI Report Delivery</li><li>Five New Mentoring Modules – Financial Management, Inventory Management, People Management, Business Growth Strategies, and Leadership & Effective Self Management</li></ul><br /><!–mep-nl–><iframe width=”500″ height=”245″ src=”//player.vimeo.com/video/107876428″ frameborder=”0″ webkitallowfullscreen=”webkitallowfullscreen” mozallowfullscreen=”mozallowfullscreen” allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”></iframe><p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/107876428″>Edge Pulse Training</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/user14130662″>The Edge Retail Academy</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.<br /><br /><br /></p><!–mep-nl–><!–mep-nl–><iframe width=”500″ height=”281″ src=”//player.vimeo.com/video/108954602″ frameborder=”0″ webkitallowfullscreen=”webkitallowfullscreen” mozallowfullscreen=”mozallowfullscreen” allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”></iframe><p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/108954602″>Edge Pulse Marketing 10.6.14</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/user14130662″>The Edge Retail Academy</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.<br /><br /></p><p>How valuable would it be if you could manage your store—or multiple stores—at one time, from any location? What if you could track sales as they happen—and reward your sales people or sales manager instantly for their positive performance? What if your team could access information about what vendors and products are popular right now? Would it help them close more sales? Would it also help you replenish fast-selling trending stock before you run out? Edge Pulse also allows you to measure the amount of profit you may be losing due to discounting. Would that be valuable to you?</p><h3>If you answered yes to even one of these questions, you need to learn more about all the things Edge Pulse can do for you.<br /><br /><a href=”http://www.edgeretailacademy.com/contact-us/” title=”Contact Us”>Contact us to learn more about Edge Pulse.</a></h3><!–mep-nl–><!–mep-nl–>“Edge Pulse is an amazing tool!
