Panel Narrator, Steve Frenda,
Managing Director of Path to Purchase, EnsembleIQ Company:
How do you measure in-store display compliance?
Panelist, Frank Krug, Director of Technology for TPN:
As the agency, we have line of sight into how many retailers and brands are wrestling with that question.
And they are, in fact, wrestling with it.
It varies. In some cases it's really primitive. People are literally going out with a sheet of paper and a checklist, driving around each store, ticking it off, going back, putting it in an excel spreadsheet. Somebody collates all the spreadsheets.
It's great you have all the data, but there's no easy way to query it and find out what the issues are and where the problems are.
In a more sophisticated way, some retailers have an app where the sales force walks in, it geo-locates to that particular store, comes up with a list of questions where displays are supposed to be. They walk through, take pictures, and that all gets uploaded into the cloud.
A lot more efficient. All the data is in one place. Queries are a little bit easier.
There's still obviously a lot of room for improvement.
