Retail & Wholesale

Facing tough times in retail? We get it. Wessex Commercial helps Somerset and Devon businesses streamline finances, see what's really happening, and grow your business.

Inflation, cost-of-living pressures, and evolving consumer habits are all impacting retail and wholesale businesses. Wessex Commercial tackles these challenges head-on by providing a comprehensive financial management solution.

We seamlessly integrate your sales platforms (POS, online stores) with Xero, ensuring all your sales data flows smoothly into a centralized system. This enables you to see clear trends across your entire business, regardless of whether a sale occurred in-store, online, or on a mobile app.

Additionally, tools like DEXT help automate data entry and bookkeeping tasks, further saving you valuable time.

Your partner in thriving retail and wholesale

A flood of transactions across multiple channels can make it difficult to identify important trends and make informed decisions. Wessex Commercial helps you cut through the noise by identifying key performance indicators (KPIs) that are relevant to your business and personal plans.

Whether it’s online conversion rates, in-store customer dwell time, or product profitability, we’ll guide you in establishing clear targets and tracking your progress towards those goals.

This data-driven approach allows you to optimise marketing strategies, allocate resources effectively, and maximise profitability across all your sales channels.

Keeping books and records up-to-date while managing the day-to-day operations of a retail or wholesale business can be a significant challenge. Wessex Commercial streamlines bookkeeping processes and automates tasks wherever possible, freeing up your valuable time to focus on running your business.

Additionally, we help you manage cash flow – a critical concern for many small retailers and niche wholesalers. We’ll help you develop strategies to improve cash flow, such as optimising inventory levels and negotiating better payment terms with your suppliers.
