ThirdChannel Core Store Reporting™
Drop a cloned version of yourself at the front door of every store.
ThirdChannel cloud-based reporting analyzes millions of data points every day coming straight from the store floor to help you maximize sales. It’s like placing a cloned version of yourself at the front door of every store so you can jot down demographics details on every shopper walking in, secretly follow them as they shop to see what they buy—and why—and then edit your in-store experiences accordingly to help you sell even more. Come to think of it, it’s almost like cheating a bit. Isn’t it?

We needed to be sure our brand was represented the way we wanted and that there was continuity of presence at retail. We needed help with our launches and we couldn’t be in all places at once. ThirdChannel Brand Reps are more like brand ambassadors that are within the demographic; not just a merchandiser.
Nobody brought the digital platform that ThirdChannel brought and nobody let us be part of the hiring process of the Brand Representatives like ThirdChannel does.
It’s incredibly challenging to get the assortment right in the door, then to have the right marketing materials to support the sell through at scale, in so many different sport verticals, and get it into all the doors at scale in under 30 days.
We didn’t know how our new [running shoe] line was going to do, but we knew we had support from ThirdChannel Brand Reps. By the end of 2017 it was one of [our retailer’s] biggest-selling models for the year. Some weeks it passed 20% sell-through. One week it hit 27%.
A store manager asked if we had recently changed demonstration providers and I explained that we had. He only had wonderful things to say about his new ThirdChannel Brand Rep and that the knowledge, attitude, and confidence is a world of change from the previous person.
