Stop the Revolving Door with Merchandising Software for Field Teams

High rep turnover in merchandising field teams is seen as a chronic, inevitable situation in the industry. Reps come and go due to many reasons that can include unreasonable expectations concerning hours and amount of work, lack of experience, poor performance, fraudulent check-ins and reports, among others.

By implementing merchandising software for field teams, rep turnover can be reduced since the following issues are addressed:
  • Fraudulent check-ins and reports
    Merchandising software for field teams adds time and GPS stamps to every activity performed by a rep so it becomes virtually impossible for fraudulent check-ins and/or reports to happen in the first place.
  • Elimination of off-site, after-hours reporting
    With merchandising software for field teams, as soon as reps close their store visits, information from their brand/ product audit forms and checklists is sent to the Cloud, which means that off-site, after-hours reporting is basically eliminated thus reducing rep complaints and the feeling of unfairness due to unpaid work.
  • Poor rep performance
    Merchandising rep is mostly seen as an entry-level position. However, it takes experience to be able to notice when things are not within brand or corporate standards and to report them properly to management. Merchandising software allows managers to create an unlimited number of custom ad-hoc forms, so reps can more easily identify what should be reported.
To summarize, merchandising software for field teams can help create a culture of accountability that helps prevent high turnover.
