The sales team’s monthly audit process was taking approximately fifty minutes per store, leaving very little time for valuable in-store execution tasks. Their primary goals were to decrease the time spend preparing, measuring and identifying issues, and invest more time into revenue enhancing activities.
Trax worked with the client to implement the Trax Retail Execution solution for more than five-hundred sales reps in the UK and Ireland, primarily to track share-of-shelf, distribution, and out-of-shelf metrics.
Using Trax Retail Execution, the client reduced data capture and store assessment times by 50% and 16% respectively.
The Trax Retail Execution solution enabled the client account reps to invest 40% more time into store execution activities.
