To maintain a positive relationship with supplier partners, retailers must ensure product availability and comply with brand requirements regarding store planograms, merchandising techniques, in-store signage and more.
Real-time intelligence provider Retail Solutions and Gigwalk have partnered to release the RSi Intelligent Crowdsourcing solution. Using the solution, suppliers can accurately detect store and event conditions, send real-time fix notices to store teams, share observations with the value chain and reclaim lost sales. The solution is designed to streamline the execution of new item planograms and promotional displays, as well as preventing product out-of-stocks.
The solution combines RSi’s downstream data and alerting capabilities with Gigwalk’s enterprise platform, which includes access to a public network of 550,000 mobile-enabled independent contractors. Retailers and brands can collaborate more efficiently by gathering and sharing in-store intelligence, identifying gaps in the supply chain and triggering actions at the store level to correct errors in near real time.
