According to Salesforce, “U.S. consumer goods companies spend about $200 billion every year for in-store merchandising and marketing, but consumer goods leaders say that 52% of their merchandising and marketing plans aren’t executed as intended within stores, leading to more than $100 billion in annual trade spend not being optimized”. This means that companies are losing more than $100 billion annually in the money they spend to increase demand for their products.
Whether it’s sales reps visiting important accounts or field reps selling in the field, the conventional distribution model for consumer goods has always been centered on face-to-face meetings. Brands need a way for sales teams to understand how well their products are selling, what’s needed in the store, and which locations need attention from field representatives. Brands also must support field teams by providing task management tools that enable field reps to execute and audit accurately and quickly while in the field.
Consumer Goods (CG) Cloud can help consumer goods companies transform their business by providing field reps with a strong and intelligent solution that helps elevate the in-store experiences for the end consumers.
