Case Study | Installation and Merchandising: ASDA MVG Audit

A recent audit we conducted, for ASDA’s Movies, Videos & Games category, saw us audit over 6,000 fixtures and over 100,000 mods. We answered over 350,000 questions and created a pick list for 486,200 SKUs of shelf fixtures. It was the most precise audit ever undertaken and meant that ASDA could deliver exactly what each store needed with no waste and no overspend.

Retail Compliance Audits

A retail compliance audit provides the opportunity to put in place a process of constant evaluation of your brand's position in-store and in the minds of your customers.

Using a fully bespoke questionnaire we can capture the data you need for immediate and long-term planning and decision-making.

A tailored retail compliance audit provides information at a micro level about exactly what is happening with your brands from shelf to basket.

In order to maximise the value of retail marketing activity it is essential to know what is happening in-store, specifically for on-shelf availability and promotional compliance as well as category and competitor activity. However, some brands experience an 'information gap' making it difficult to know how your products actually look on the shelf - the very place where the all-important buying decisions are being made.

Our in-depth retail compliance audits perform a vital function for marketers in enabling them to gain visibility of compliance at shelf level and begin the process of closing the gap between what was planned and what is actually happening in-store and improve the delivery of brand identity in the eyes of the consumer.

Store Surveys

An extensive retail estate requires ongoing monitoring and control. Regular, independent store surveys allow you to increase your understanding of what is happening within your retail estate, no matter how large or how small.

A store survey facilitates more effective retail asset management, helps you optimise fixture and display content and so enables you to develop each store within your portfolio to maximum operational effectiveness.

We combine almost 20 years of experience with industry leading technology and a passion for delivery to bring your business success.
