Timing and flawless completions are keys to a successful POP, display or rack installation.
SPAR KROGNOS interactive, store-level reporting system allows our field managers and clients to monitor the store-by-store progress of any installation, in real time. You will know exactly when and where displays have been installed, so the effectiveness of supporting advertising is assured.
Furthermore, SPAR KROGNOS Internet Issue Tracking System allows Merchandising Specialists to identify potential in-store problems (manager refusals, missing displays, insufficient product, etc.) so rapidly that necessary corrections can be made and seen by Retailers, Manufacturers and SPAR KROGNOS so the impact of promotional efforts are assured.
The faster a
new product can get into distribution, the
faster sales can begin to grow, and the more
difficult it is for competitors to respond.
Speed, with quality, is the hallmark of
SPAR KROGNOS service. While it's not unusual for other
suppliers to take up to 4-8 weeks to achieve 80%
ACV on a new product launch, SPAR KROGNOS has been able
to hit that level in a single week.
