FAIRFIELD, NJ (March 25, 2015) – StayinFront was recently reviewed in the Gartner Market Guide for Retail Execution and Monitoring Solutions for the Consumer Goods Industry, by Dale Hagemeyer published 3/4/2015, for its in-store selling tool, StayinFront PitchBook™, which uses store-level analytics and presentations to engage store managers with dynamic, fact-based selling.
The 2015 Market Guide evaluated the offerings from field force retail execution software providers and assessed their ability to deliver mission-critical solutions to the consumer goods industry. A key finding in the report noted that “as the retail execution and monitoring market matures, the focus is shifting from transactional capabilities to those that can help a field sales force to sell more and do so more consistently.”
Extensive retail execution capabilities and built-in analytics in StayinFront TouchCG® provide consumer goods companies with the ability to do more and know more in the field. The company’s dynamic selling tool, StayinFront PitchBook, was designed to enable its customers to sell more in store.
According to Gartner analyst, Dale Hagemeyer, “We are also seeing CG manufacturers begin to focus on “sell more“capabilities that move beyond being able to enable a transaction, but actually help the salesperson to be more efficient and effective.“
“StayinFront TouchCG® with PitchBook is at the forefront of the industry changes that Gartner has identified” said Sam Barclay, EVP and Managing Director at StayinFront. “With PitchBook, representatives can use retailer POS data and shelf conditions to help a store manager understand store specific sales performance, calculate missed sales and implement shelf and promotion changes to help sell more.“
