Retail audits are an essential part of the consumer product goods (CPG) and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industries. They encompass several activities at the point of sale (PoS) and include:
- Verifying compliance with sales, marketing and branding strategies: Auditing product pricing and placement, planogram and promotional compliance, visual merchandising
- Tracking and monitoring: On-shelf availability, orders and returns, competitor prices and promotions
- In-store customer surveys
This is why the choice of a retail audit software is so important: The right tool will allow auditors and field reps to perform more effectively, increasing sales, while helping companies save costs.
