Ensure excellence in promotional execution

Retail compliance

Make valuable and immediate in-store changes to hit 90% compliance

Promotional investment can increase sales and growth. But for many retailers, poor store compliance to head office plans erode planned returns as volume uplifts aren’t achieved, stock doesn’t stick to the shop floor and overhangs occur, lowering inventory turns, increasing complexity and impacting labour as associates manage the stock back into the store warehouse.

Slow processes and disparate systems

Slow processes and disparate systems

Without shared information on revenue, pricing and promotion, it’s almost impossible to develop or execute new promotions swiftly. Bad promotional design and poor communication combined with disparate systems and technologies adds multiple levels of complexity to an already ineffective process.

Day one is essential

Day one is essential

The sales profile for promotions is substantially biased, with up to 20% of planned incremental sales missed when products aren’t available in the first few days of launch. At the other end of the cycle, we see over 8% of working capital tied up in stock overhangs, resulting in the need to markdown.

Lack of real insight

Lack of real insight

Many corporate systems don’t have the required level of analytical capabilities to offer useful insight when connecting promotional design to execution. We’ve found the hours to implement new promotions, modular layouts and new product listings are significant, often accounting for 40% of total labour spent in store. But these activities are rarely informed or targeted by data and insight.
