Excel at Retail Execution
Welcome to the new world of Smart Retail where you can manage execution in a whole new dimension. Consumers are in the driver’s seat, demanding a unified shopping experience that fuses their physical and digital shopping channels. With over 90% of sales still occurring in stores, physical retail remains the cornerstone and in-store execution is at the heart of it all.
ThirdChannel’s powerful, cloud-based technology guides field teams to capture data on the ground in stores, and merges that with POS data, inventory data and a wide range of other data sources. It analyzes the details and gives each store location a Store Optimization ScoreTM, revealing opportunities to improve the store environment, and generating action plans to focus field members on what matters to grow sales immediately. If you do not have your own team of field agents, use ThirdChannel to match exclusive, brand-right individuals from a network of 130,000+ that compete to represent your brand in each city.

Legacy systems and stagnant data will hinder your brand from excelling in fast-paced shopping environments. Realize your vision to deliver a consistent brand presence across scores of retailers and thousands of locations. Ensure all products are optimally merchandised on the shelf and ensure all product backstock is moved quickly to the sales floor. ThirdChannel technology captures data about every aspect of your products’ representation and exposes opportunities for improvement.
ThirdChannel research shows that you have approximately 30 seconds in store to capture consumers’ attention and engage them. In order to drive trials and conversions instantly, ThirdChannel’s robust data pinpoints sales drivers, further tailoring the demo in terms of event placement, timing and more.

Keeping track of store fixtures and marketing displays often degenerate into poorly versioned spreadsheets and information overload.

Insight into what your competition is doing in stores drives your ability to gain market advantage. Survey and audit store environments to assess competitive dynamics at play in stores. ThirdChannel compounds this by integrating external data sources to calculate current market share and determining market potential against your competition.
You rely on, and assume that, retail associates are knowledgeable about your products. With turnover rates so high on store floors and the need for constant, high-quality consumer engagement, associate training should never cease. ThirdChannel technology enables brand penetration by educating store associates on the most granular levels of your product line, strengthening brand awareness so they can sell more effectively to consumers.
