How to Cut Retail Audit Operational Costs


Performing in-store audits is crucial to the consumer product goods (CPG) and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industries, since it is the only way that management has to know if the message that is reaching the final customer is the same defined in the corporate sales, marketing, merchandising and branding strategies.

However, recurring retail audits come at a steep cost due to the fact that they involve a lot of people performing several tasks at many points of sale (PoS).

By adopting a retail audit software, companies can save money in several ways. VisitBasis Retail Execution is one of these solutions, and delivers the following benefits:
