Project Execution Issues Reducing Your Comps & Profits

No Real-Time Visibility

Standard Retailer EMS Systems Typically Are Very Rudimentary With Standard Yes/No Workorder and No or Limited Digital Imaging Integration.  These Systems Leave You Flying in the Dark Around What Was Executed, How Was It Executed and What Were the Issues.

Multiple Ancillary Systems

Projects Today are Managed Across Multiple Disconnected Systems From Store Comm Tools to Space Planning to Scheduling to Actual Execution. Consolidation of These Ancillary Systems is Critical to Accelerate Your Execution Opportunities and Reduce Cost of Maintaining These Additional Systems.

No Third Party Accountability Tools

Third Party Management is Tough.  Accountability is Always Lacking as Retailer or Supplier is 100% Dependent on Third Party Actually Executing Against Schedule. This Combined With Lack of Visibility to What Was Done, What Were the Issues, etc. Significantly Reduces the Expected Project ROI.

Limited Store Accountability

Standard Retailer EMS Tools Do Not Hold Stores Accountable for Execution of Corporate Initiatives.  The National Average for Store Execution of Corporate Initiatives is Less Than 70% for Standard Retail Projects & Less Than 55% for Promotional Activity.  This Lack of Accountability is a Comp and Margin Killer.

No Integration

Retailer EMS Systems Typically Have No or Limited Integration to Procurement, Collateral, Space Planning, and Quality Control.  Lack of Integration Costs Retailers Millions Annually in Missed Comp Opportunities, Increased Inventories and Excessive Fixture/POP Costs.

Lack of Store Communication

Direct Store Communication is Critical to Your Success.  Today Lack of Communication is Killing Your Ability to Move Quickly and With Confidence Around Execution, Capacity, Space, Collateral and Procurement. 

Lack of Issue Management

Store Issues are a Part of Retail Execution.  There is No Avoiding Them.  The Lack of Standardized Approach Leaves Outstanding Issues, That Impact Your Sales Everyday, Unresolved.  Lack of Resolution SLA's Allow Lax Accountability For Getting The Issues Resolved At All.

No Plan to Actual Store Condition

Projects are Planned From Typically Planned From Prior Knowledge or Store Surveys Which Both are Notoriously Inaccurate.  The Inability to Plan and Execute Against Actual Store Conditions is Critical to Controlling Execution Costs and Driving Planned Program ROI.
