If you are associated with a fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) company, you understand the challenges of expanding your retail outreach. You need to scout for new stores, onboard them, and manage them effectively. But this process can be costly and time-consuming, especially if you rely on traditional methods of hiring and training talent or have limited resources.
If you encounter such problems while activating retail stores and onboarding merchants, you aren’t alone! The FMCG sector is highly competitive, with many players offering similar products and services. To stand out from the crowd, you need to invest in faster ways to expand your physical retail presence.
Many players in this industry operate on low margins, which means that any increase in the cost of raw materials, transportation, taxes, or labor can affect their profitability. To maintain their margins, such companies need to optimize their supply chain, reduce wastage, and increase efficiency.
Fortunately, there is a perfect solution to the crippling retail challenges!
