Examples

Business Scorecards

An overview into vendor/brand/SKU performance and trends across core markets in relation to top competitors.  Scorecards can be used to easily highlight strengths to key retailers.  Results can be used to command priority when competing for limited shelf space.

Price Point Assessments

Isolate the sales trends across various price tiers and identify where the source of sales gain/loss is coming from.  This can also be used to identify price thresholds and be used to create a pricing strategy across new and existing SKUs.

Pre & Post Promotion Assessments

Assess the effectiveness of a promotional event in a specific market or retailer.  The results can be shared with retailers to showcase the benefits that the promotional campaign can bring to a brand(s) and encourage future participation.

New Market Evaluations

Evaluate markets targeted for expansion by analyzing the current sales trends and health of segment/brand leaders. Emerging trends and growth areas are then compared with the target vendor portfolio to identify overlap and gaps.

Short-term Forecasts

Assess the forecasted potential for a target vendor’s volume sales over existing markets to achieve specific sales milestones over a specified time period.  Forecasts can be used to help short-term goal planning through distribution growth.

Long-term Forecasts

Assess the forecasted potential for a target vendor’s volume sales over an extended period of time while using historical sales data to control for outliers and assumptions. Forecasts can be used to identify long-term potential based on historical performance.
