KALKI is, undoubtedly, on a trajectory of growth and a robust system of third-party auditing teams ensures financial processes are examined end to end and that industry best practices remain the standard for commercial success. Metrics like “Sales Per Square Foot” have been employed to ensure that each store remains profitable and with strategic cost-cutting and inventory management the team focuses on personalization and tailoring their offerings to meet individual requirements for various occasions, festive and wedding styles to manage inventory more effectively. This approach not only minimizes excess inventory costs but also ensures that resources are aligned with specific customer demands, contributing to improved financial performance across the board.
