“UMS” International Merchandising System
Corner Frachise Chain Stores The Opportunity To Be A Gülaylar Franchise
The Gülaylar Jewelry Group, after 80 years in the sector, works in a wholly integrated manner from design to production, from exportation to importation, and from wholesale to retail. Gülaylar carries out wholesale transactions with its 5000 corporational customers in Turkey. Furthermore, thanks to exportation activities to 55 countries all around the world, it is a well-known and a long standing brand.
The Gülaylar Jewelry Group works according to the following principles:
- Strategic Planning,
- Market and Customer Oriented Production,
- Data Analysis,
- Care for Human Resources,
- Administering Results,
These principles are shaped by UMS (International Store Systems) and are the guidelines for all franchise investments. UMS, with the Group’s experience of more than half a century, is an important branch of the know-how department.
Jewelry is a highly competitive sector and therefore those companies who are active in this sector or those who are planning to be should remember that brand value, design and proper pricing are the key components to staying alive. Such an approach will also make it possible to rise above the others and will pave the way to becoming a distinct brand. In order to attain this, it is crucial to offer diverse and extensive collections to customers under the umbrella of an experienced and strong brand respected in the jewelry market. UMS represents an important opportunity for the Turkish jewelry sector as it offers the chance (for those entrepreneurs who meet the necessary qualifications) to become a distinct and leading franchise. Entrepreneurs are expected to guarantee a certain sale quota; and without paying any franchise fee, they can partake of UMS privileges.
UMS offers three distinct models: franchise, vendor, or corner stores. Corner, mevcut kuyumcu mağaza vitrini ve/veya içerisinde “Gülaylar” bölümü oluşturarak, bu bölümde yalnızca “Gülaylar” ürünlerinin satılması imkanını sağlamaktadır.
Corner stores provide the opportunity to create a Gülaylar corner in available store windows or showcases in which only Gülaylar products are sold.
Vendor stores are built on 20-50 square meters areas and the decoration expenditures are estimated to amount to 25-75,000 thousand dollars.
The corporate customers who wish to be franchise stores will also become a member of the Gülaylar chain stores. Around 100-250 square meters of space is expected for franchise stores and according to UMS decoration standards an average of 125-175,000 thousand dollars should be spared for expenditures.
The biggest advantage for those entrepreneurs who participate in UMS is Gülaylar’s 80 years of experience and the hard-earned trust that results from such long years in the sector. Secondly, they will be able to appropriate unique and exclusive R&D designs along with a worldwide know-how network as Gülaylar creates its designs after analyzing consumer choices.
An entrepreneur who has previously become a part of UMS will possess a store running according to international standards.
Gülaylar provides unlimited logistical support in UMS for those customers who want to be a member of the organization. This logistical support consists of:
- The store’s site selection,
- Store decoration,
- Shop window decoration,
- Measuring the customer profile of the store and calculating measurements of segmentations.
- Selecting appropriate products and designs that fit the customer profiles and segmentations,
- Contiunally updating collections with new designs and products.,
- Personnel training,
- Post-sale support,
- National advertisement,
- CRM (customer relations management), customer survey,
- Corporational computer program set up and training.
- Online stock tracking and orders.
Within the framework of an effectively and quickly executed plan, Gülaylar helps entrepreneurs improve their monthly turnover potential, their competitive abilities, and transactions with surplus value.
UMS members which make use of Gülaylar’s 80 years of know-how find an opportunity to work in productive and profitable conditions that are under the regulation and guarantee of international standards. Gülaylar, with UMS , expands its franchise chains primarily in developed and developing cities of Turkey such as Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Bursa, Denizli, Antalya, Adana, Konya, Kayseri, Gaziantep, Kastamonu, Samsun, Trabzon. Regarding franchise stores there have been frequent demands and applications throughout the world. The UMS system, if franchise stores are opened in Germany, France, England, Switzerland, Australia, Eastern Europe, Russian and Dubai, will continue to extend the Gülaylar brand by way of international platforms.
There are now serious plans underway to activate 500 stores in Turkey and 100 in Europe and the surrounding countries within 5 years.
