Retail Data in Action: How & Why CPG Brands Leverage Data to Win at the Shelf

Field sales leaders and executive teams are constantly seeking a baseline understanding of their field teams’ ability to cleanly execute and impact their sales goals. With 25 percent of sales lost due to poor retail execution, the top brands know that to meaningfully move the needle on growth, obstacles and problems in the field need to be attacked differently – which means they need to look at the problems differently, through different lenses, and additional insights.

At Repsly, we believe we can help them achieve this growth through evolution – the evolution of how they see, connect, and act on their retail data. That’s why over the past few months, we’ve put a spotlight on a number of brands and strategic approaches, focusing on the tactics they’ve adopted to win more at the shelf. 

We’ve highlighted the top content pieces you can’t miss in this blog below. Read, watch, and listen to retail leaders and experts discuss how brands can leverage data to work differently, faster, more effectively and intelligently.
