On-Shelf Availability

Having the right products where and when shoppers want, requires  the right data when and how you need it to make the right decisions.

Accurately identify, predict, and resolve out-of-stocks (OOS) and phantom inventory issues in near-real time. Keep your physical store and digital shelves consistently stocked, shoppers satisfied, and sales and profits moving in the right direction.

Empty Shelves Can Lead To Emptier Pockets

If shoppers can’t find what they’re looking for, you’ve lost the sale. And odds are they’ll buy a competitor’s product, maybe at a different store.

All of this negatively impacts you, your retailers, and your consumers—possibly long term.

Whatever the reason for an empty shelf—product is out-of-stock, on the wrong shelf, in transit, was overpromoted, etc.—poor shopper experiences, loss of brand loyalty, and loss of future sales and revenue can be prevented by using actionable insights based on precise daily data and analytics that allow you to act quickly and decisively.

Lack of Product Availability Can Hurt Your Brand and Your Bottom Line.

We Take That Pain Away.

“Retail Velocity and its VELOCITY® platform have been a real strategic asset for us. In addition to bringing on additional revenues, we also credit VELOCITY with our ability to give our customers tangible proof of our impact on their bottom line and prove our value to them over time. Our customers want to know how we can do all the things we do—how we provide the timely and accurate reporting no one else can. That's a huge competitive advantage, and we credit VELOCITY®."
-Vice President of Sales, National Sporting Goods Supplier
"VELOCITY® allows us to spot exceptions 10 times faster than our old system. It lets us take a 'snapshot' of every retail facility we serve across the country—at the store level—so we can instantly identify a low on-hand number or a high 'phantom' number. Because VELOCITY's exception-based reporting highlights these products for us, we can dig right into the data quickly and attack those numbers directly to determine specifically which SKUs and stores are problematic and then go in and provide a solution. And even though we have not added any new field sales staff, our service levels are much higher.”
-Account Manager, Large Consumer Goods Manufacturer
“The use of VELOCITY®, combined with some improved standard work processes, has enabled us to run this continuing data, reporting, and analytics challenge almost like a production facility. It's given us standard processes and practices, standard exception reports, and has allowed us to take corrective actions on a regular basis. To be a preferred supplier to our leading retail partners, we must continually improve their cash flow, sales, and profits. Retail Velocity has helped us achieve those goals."
