Accepting the status quo is no longer an option

Competition is tough. Consumers are more demanding than ever and retailers expect you to help them meet those demands.

You’re under constant pressure to spot gaps, sense trends and act at pace. And you need deeper insights to make those quicker, fact-based decisions.

But how do you drive this transformation? How do you continually adapt on the fly while proving yourself a trusted voice?  It’s clear, accepting how things have always been done is no longer an option.


Reinvigorate your approach to category management

The answer lies in: distribution-based analytics—an innovative process where sales results are adjusted according to the distribution levels of the products analyzed.

And it’s been proven time and time again—by academic research and years of empirical work—to be the most important variable in the marketing mix.

Harnessing distribution-based analytics gives you:

  • Greater accuracy when predicting future sales trends
  • A better window into current market dynamics
  • A deeper understanding of consumer preferences
  • A powerful tool to evaluate distribution gaps at any geographic level
  • Lightning-fast insights into overall sales trends -- a first-level diagnostic on "why" something is occurring.

You become a trusted source for meaningful and relevant category insights—a partner retailers want by their sides. 

Plus, within your organization you’re seen as an expert, able to draw deeper insights to make quicker fact-based decisions.

All to say, distribution-based analytics helps you accelerate your company’s journey from insight to action.

Instead of analyzing data at the traditional category level, TABS RetailWorks analyzes all categories in an aisle, department, or even the total store. TABS RetailWorks answers the question “How can we take our fixed amount of space, and wring out more sales and profits simply by shifting space from some categories to others, and making changes to how categories are organized?”
