How to Optimize POP Merchandising Displays


Panel Narrator, Steve Frenda,

Managing Director of Path to Purchase, EnsembleIQ Company:

How will this technology help you do a better job with your promotions and maximize the use of your space within the store?

Brandon Barr:  Director of Retail Marketing and Insights for Duracell

From a brand perspective, it's very hard to measure in-store display compliance. Duracell does it several ways.

We use a group called Field Agent to send consumers from a crowd source perspective to take pictures and tell us if displays are where they are supposed to be.

We also use our in-store broker agency, Acosta.

The bigger challenge with those are, if you're doing a holiday promotion across the U.S. and you have 30,000 stores, it's very expensive to cover all those.

It's also a single point in time.

By the time the data gets compiled and is read, as an Excel spreadsheet with pictures, it's really un-actionable.

What we're looking forward to in the future is real time data that's actionable.

A technology to help the brand and the retailer partner together and fix problems.

We can ultimately do a better job with our promotions and maximize the use of their space within the store.

Steve Frenda:

I'm struck by the fact that now, with the increased sophistication of POS data, loyalty data, and then some of the new emerging techniques that you're talking about, the possibilities are endless. Compliance has been poor over the years, and I think this technology is a great opportunity for us today.

As Casey Nolter, ASICS, stated inRetail's BIG Show 2017 Recap:  "Events like National Retail Federation are going to go along way in terms of understanding innovation and how we are trying to figure out how to merge digital with traditional commerce."
