ADVANTAGE RETAIL TECHNOLOGY SERVICES
Advantage’s retail technology platform includes innovative and proprietary field merchandising and in-store selling applications.
Advantage’s merchandising application supports distribution management by relaying accurate store-level authorizations. Our associates leverage retailer point-of-sale data to quickly identify and address store-specific SKU issues, including voids, out-of-stocks and out-of-dates. The software also powers live ordering, promotion compliance and competitive reporting.
Advantage's Pitch Book in-store selling application delivers professionally developed sales stories that are integrated with store-level data, empowering in-store personnel to effectively present new items and promotional event and display recommendations.
With access to a retailer's point-of-sale data, associates are able to present store managers with a clear picture of store-level sales and missed sales and create merchandising opportunities that will maximize profits.
Our robust reporting capabilities provide full real-time visibility to in-store conditions, trends and results. The platform supplies managers with tactics for responding to in-the-field conditions, tools to quickly analyze data and comprehensive dashboards to visually track key performance indicators and trends.
