- Save Time to Improve Productivity. When merchandisers are able to use their own mobile devices to perform tasks at retail locations, they collect retail data faster and concentrate on customers, not paperwork. Automated scheduling, fast data entry, instant data transfer to corporate database, analytic capabilities, and route optimization are among those time savers that allow your merchandisers and their managers to drive greater efficiency and improve your company’s bottom line.

SaaS merchandising mobile solutions for Android & iOS tablets and smartphones allow BYOD strategy implementation, so your company saves money on hardware (no need to buy mobile devices, your merchandisers can use those they already have), IT costs (no need in servers and IT staff) and training (your merchandisers use the devices they already know how to operate).
- Reduce Operating Expenses. When using a merchandising software solution the managers and supervisors get an ability to manage both inventory and sales data for each retail location. Sales and marketing departments can use merchandising software simultaneously, which saves money and strengthens cooperation between the managers. Merchandising software allows manage all data collection operations from one easy-to-use system, so you can save on scheduling, analytic software, GPS-tracking systems for field staff, order processing applications and more.
