We use Retail Auditing as a proven methodology to track the performance of your sales channel & trade-marketing investments.
You spend significant budgets on trade-marketing, visual merchandising, POS and planogramming. You negotiate and pay for optimal shelf share and secondary placement. You develop specific pricing strategies and promotional campaigns.
But despite these expenditures most manufacturers have little information on (a) retailer and store compliance, (b) in-store brand effectiveness and (c) overall ROI of your expenditures.
