How a Mobile App for Merchandisers Helps Businesses Go Green

Merchandising activities are traditionally natural resource intensive, from the piles of paper necessary to perform numerous daily audits to the amount of fuel used by reps in their daily routes.

Therefore, it is easy to see how a mobile app for merchandisers can help businesses go green just by virtually eliminating paper usage during audits. But what are other ways in which such apps can help reduce the use of natural resources in merchandising activities? Here are some examples:

  • Elimination of data transcription - the most work-intensive part of traditional pen-and-paper audits is actually transcribing the data collected at stores. By eliminating this work- and time-intensive step, a mobile app for merchandising helps save power and man-hours.
  • Route optimization - some mobile apps for merchandising can automatically calculate the shortest route for reps' daily store routes. This will naturally lead to time and fuel savings.
  • Anytime online report access - another area in the merchandising audit process where there is traditionally an opportunity for reduced paper usage is reporting. By allowing anytime online report access, including for stakeholders not involved in the day-to-day operations such as outside clients or executives, a mobile app for merchandising significantly reduces paperwork as well as printing costs and power usage.
