Retail Data Management Systems
Retail systems are notoriously complex, with acronyms, jargon, and forms that can be a labyrinth of frustration. Small mistakes cost thousands in delays, fines, or being discontinued from the shelf.
Each retailer requires compliance with its own business agreements, insurance requirements, shipping and routing guides, and internal data management systems (a.k.a. “supplier” or “vendor portals”). These systems contain your brand information, product specifications, payment terms, promotional programs, vendor score cards, and much more.
Unfortunately, there’s no single standard for this data. Each retailer system has its own unique interface and data formatting requirements. And, if they’re not followed exactly, it can result in delays, fines, or even removal from the shelf.
To avoid these costly mistakes, it’s imperative to get the setup right from the start.
After decades working with major retailers, we know how to navigate complex retailer systems and forms, so we can quickly and accurately set up your vendor and new item paperwork. And, because we do this every day, we’re up to date with ever-changing data requirements and retailer preferences.
If retailer forms and systems aren’t accurately — and completely — set up, then retailers may delay, delist, or even discontinue your product.
