Retail

Retail execution can be an extremely difficult environment to manage.  The sheer number of stores to cover, a limited field force and the range of products by store makes it challenging to achieve excellent in-store execution! Our mobile solution caters for store-specific product ranging, optimised route planning and the ability to share store and SKU-specific information with merchandisers and reps. 

This allows for quick analysis and reaction to rectify stock, store and user-related issues. Exception-based reporting allows you to identify and resolve areas of concern. Key to the retail execution solution, is the ability to share the store-specific plan (promotional plan, price compliance, negotiated space, distribution) with the merchandiser/rep, ensuring they are able to problem-solve within the moment, reducing dependency on management intervention.

Territory planning technology drives efficiency by allowing you to increase store visits, while reducing kilometres travelled. This is achieved by utilising route optimisation and territory planning software, based on GPS store position.
