In 2008, a number of longtime store owners elected to divorce the disappointing Children’s franchise to which we were married for the better part of 2 decades. We then spent our two “non-compete” years developing an affordable, non-binding alternative to children’s franchising and have been pleased and privileged to help a good number of clients launch “their own” businesses since.
During this time, we were enlisted to help a number of women’s stores coast to coast create a women’s pricing application modeled after the NextGen children’s application included in the franchise alternative package. Since that time, hundreds of owners have come to use the children and women pricing applications. An application for men is scheduled for release this fall. Demand has exceeded expectations, particularly from Store owners using Point of Sale System’s other than Resaleworld’s Liberty POS system for which it was originally and exclusively built.
In order to satisfy this demand, NextGen has erected an online Pricing Portal capable working with all POS systems. Indeed, NextGen is now devoting its full energies to Pricing, far and away the most demanding and critical challenge facing new and existing owners.
