Increase your facings
Each product on the shelf is vying for the spotlight. Analysing the facings report allows you to gauge your share of the shelf. It’s a battle of visibility, where businesses measure their prominence against competitors.
Through assessment of market share and speaking with the merchandising team, companies can increase the prominence and exposure of their products. Consumers are enchanted by the carefully optimised facings.
Nobody wants to share the shelf
The share-of-shelf report is the ultimate measuring stick for product and brand greatness!
The shelves of a store are where products and brands come to life. The share-of-shelf report measures the proportion of shelf space each product occupies within a specific category.
Through the facing data capture by sales reps, the share-of-shelf report reveals who’s dominating the stage and who needs a little more magic.
Companies can unlock the secret formula to success by monitoring and improving share-of-shelf, and summoning consumer attention.
Find your missing products
While the field distribution report focuses on the products in the store, the missing products report looks at the gaps and identifies areas for improvement.
- Missing products
- Empty shelf spaces
- Problems that need attention
This view allows for an analysis of what needs addressing and where the focus should be.
The missing products report is crucial for ensuring planogram conformance (how the product should be displayed on the shelf in supermarkets). It also identifies any operational issues that may impact distribution.
By addressing missing products promptly, companies can maintain a consistent product offering and prevent consumer dissatisfaction and support category growth.
With Purveyance’s distribution features and strategic analysis of distribution data, businesses can optimise their distribution channels, increase product availability, and ultimately achieve remarkable category growth.
