Retail merchandising can be challenging. Merchandising managers have to be on top of the in-store availability, presentation, and promotion of their products, but control can be lost very easily, since dealing with retail means dealing with many stores scattered over a vast territory.

Retail merchandising software can help merchandising managers in achieving consistency across stores. With a retail merchandising software solution, field reps are able to capture in-store information on their smartphones and tablets. Once a visit is finished, the information is synchronized and merchandising managers at regional offices and headquarters will have instant access to data such as pictures, form inputs, signatures, etc.

In a fast-paced environment such as retail, choosing to adopt a retail merchandising software solution can be instrumental for management to make informed choices on time-sensitive issues such as inventory and competition.

For inventory monitoring, a state-of-the-art retail merchandising software can provide instant notifications of out-of-stocks detected by field reps to the responsible parties, speeding up replenishment and avoiding lost sales.

By having field reps regularly monitor competing products with the use of an app on their mobile devices, merchandising executives can stay ahead of the competition by spotting regional, local, or even test-phase strategies.
