Why do Retailers need iPROM?

  • Centralized Pricing, promotions and offers lack quick and effective execution at the store and franchisee point of sale terminals
  • Ensuring Price Optimization software delivers benefits through proper execution
  • Minimising pricing discrepancies that arise after fresh promotions are executed during critical steps like price tagging
  • Ensuring proper execution of trade promotions at store level to gain satisfactory returns
  • Lack of visibility into in-store execution and sell-through related to the promotion
  • New promotion ideas take a long time to trickle down to the consumer from the corporate office due to the lack of flexibility of Promotion Execution engines
  • Poor promotion change control, e.g., to communicate cancellations or changes to promotion parameters or promotion timings take time to reach franchisees or multiple stores
