Boost the profits of your bike store

Electric bikes are stimulating growth in the bike retail sector on a scale never seen before, as is the development of non-motorised transport in towns and cities.

This growth is set to last, as consumers seek to adopt lifestyles that are more environmentally friendly, include more physical activity and bring them closer to nature.

To continue growing, distribution networks and independent retailers alike need solutions for day-to-day business management (inventory, customer relations, payment, etc.), but also tools for tracking and analysing their business performance. Equipment repairs and rentals are complementary services that generate new business but require precise and accurate tracking in order to keep these new customers satisfied and build their loyalty. In addition to sales, the profitability of a bike store also hinges on services that will spark customers’ interest.

Ginkoia, the software that drives bike store profitability

Your business is highly seasonal, with activity levels fluctuating widely between high season and low season.

Analysing your sales and pacing your goods receipts are essential. In the bike trade, inventory is expensive to acquire and takes up a lot of space. To attract customers and build loyalty, you need to:

  • Analyse your sales and your repair shop performance
  • Have a 360-degree customer view
  • Optimise your inventory and goods receipts
  • Offer a digitised repair service
  • And, in some cases, develop other services such as rental or consignment

Having the right inventory

At the right time. To keep track of seasonal activity variations, accurate analysis is the key.

An efficient workshop

Offer a quality service with accurate, fair quotes and repairs completed on time.

Customer knowledge

Build a comprehensive view of your customers and their bikes, and communicate with them.

Monitor performance

Analyse your business performance (turnover and margins) - including that of your workshop technicians.

“Ginkoia provides us with a reliable schedule management tool, which helps us be rigorous about finishing bike repairs in time for the arranged pick-up.”

F. Plotnikowa, Chairman of Bike center


“One function of the Ginkoia workshop schedule software that I use a lot is the customer management tool. I know what the customer purchased in-store, how many times they have been in, if their bike has been through the workshop, or if I have changed any parts. It’s very convenient.”

Alexis Lefebvre, Alex’trem store in La Roche sur Foron


"We were also impressed by the quality of the training delivered by Ginkoia consultants. The person who assisted us was perfectly qualified to support us during this key transition, answered all of our questions, helped us transpose our working practices into the Ginkoia solution, and made themselves available whenever we needed them."

Patrick Ellena, 1 Sport 2000 store


"The repair shop module plays a key role in managing orders and ensuring a good quality of service for our customers; it keeps a record of the work and repair done on the bikes and helps us keep track of customer expectations."

Denis Kuster, manager of 6 Dvélos stores and the Dvélos e-commerce website
