Merchandising Software: Embracing Automated Audits


Merchandising audits play a very important role for brand development and sales improvement, being one of the most important market information sources for CPG and FMCG companies. Merchandising audits allow gathering information on brand's sales volume, stock levels, market trends, and effectiveness of in-store display and promotion efforts, providing general market understanding and valuable insights for more effective decision-making.
