The Challenge

The sales team’s monthly audit process was taking approximately 50 minutes per store, leaving very little time for valuable in-store execution tasks. Their primary goals were to decrease the time spent preparing, measuring, and identifying issues, and invest more time into revenue enhancing activities.

The Results

Trax worked with the client to implement the Trax Retail Execution solution for more than 500 sales reps in the UK and Ireland, primarily to track share-of-shelf, distribution, and out-of-shelf metrics.

The Bottom Line

Data collected is also leveraged across functions such as sales, category, supply chain, range & merchandising, and marketing.
