Merchandising and Audit Tools

Overview | Features | Benefits


Brands and large retailers spend a lot of money on in-store promotional programs to generate demand for their products in an ultra-competitive market. Monitoring such spend and ensuring promotions are properly executed is an everyday challenge for brands. While in-store visual merchandising audits are conducted by brands and retailers, labor costs associated with this are high. Delay in getting field data limits the brand’s ability to take necessary and timely market corrections. TradeEdge ‘Merchandising and Audit Tools’ bring a unique set of tools and services that deliver highly differentiated insights to brands, so they can better manage promotional and merchandising spend.
