The struggle was real…

No one can tell you that better than Famous Footwear. The retail giant (under the umbrella of Caleres) struggled with manual document management. Talk about inflexible, frustrating, and limited. It’s a real estate manager’s worst nightmare.

In addition, reporting was barely workable. Without consistent key metrics to review, the Famous Footwear real estate management team couldn’t make efficient business decisions. They knew they needed to find a solution that could handle their 21st century problems.
