Future of Sales in FMCG

Today’s market conditions, as well as data collection pose increasing challenges for the consumer goods industry. Not only is data collection incredibly time consuming but also little efficient, as spotlight is limited only to a fraction of stores and, due to its periodic character, to accidental facts. Furthermore, the data collected may not be translated into actionable insights, for instance because of resource bottlenecks. All of this makes answering key questions of consumer communication, segmentation, and predictive advisory extremely difficult.

Future of Sales in FMCG

Meet the main concepts of the future vision of sales in FMCG:

 

  • Re-defining Sales Force Automation as a central process hub, which leverages next to field sales teams also store managers, the consumer crowd and 3rd party providers as key participants generating data constantly.
  • Leveraging the broader scope of data based on Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Deep Learning to generate actionable insights.
  • Turn insights into tasks for field sales teams allowing them to efficiently influence the point of sales.

Use the power of Motivation to unlock the value of Perfect Store!

Perfect Store is one of the most powerful “sell-more” concepts in the consumer goods industry. It allows you to improve sales by 5 to 20 % or even more at short notice. However, one key learning from 50+ Perfect Store projects is that you need to motivate the field team to embark on the Perfect Store journey.

Link Perfect Store with Motivation to sell more

Perfect Store allows FMCG companies to create and maintain the best sales conditions at the POS no matter whether you rely on your own, 3rd party or your distributor’s merchandisers. However, without proper Motivation the field forces may not be keen on focusing on Perfect Store. Thus, you need to reshape the targets and compensation schemes to let them benefit from Perfect Store accomplishments. In other words, Motivation helps you to unlock the Perfect Store value.
