What we do

Retail Services

Our clients typically realize a return of 2 to 4 times their initial investment in retail services.

We continuously invest in our retail technology, with more than 300 million data points collected over a rolling 12-month period informing store segmentation for optimal impact at retail. 

Our proprietary Pitchbook taps into POS data to drive successful in-store selling, enabling our U.S. and Canadian retail sales representatives to provide efficient, effective, insights-driven field execution across the retail spectrum.

Through SAS Retail Services, Advantage works directly with select retailers serving as a single-source service provider.
