(PRWEB) October 22, 2012
In mid-October, the US Department of Commerce said that retail sales rose 1.1% in the third quarter, topping analyst expectations and pointing to strong fourth quarter projections. The report validated observations by ICC/Decision Services as clients generated millions in increased revenue over the first three quarters of 2012 by managing, measuring and improving the in-store customer experience. With a more optimistic view of fourth quarter sales, retailers are now gearing up for what is expected to be their busiest season.
ICC/Decision Service will accommodate the increased demand for service by focusing on comprehensive customer experience management, creating fast feedback loops to data hungry clients, and a strategic focus on client satisfaction.
Retailers have many options to explore when seeking ways to increase revenue. Key focus areas may include suggestive up selling at the register, non-purchaser studies, store conditions, out of stock issues and alcohol and tobacco compliance to name a few. ICC/Decision Services will make their comprehensive suite of customer experience management tools available so that clients can exploit the analysis to drive revenue as market activity increases.
Because ICC/Decision Services delivers results on audits within 24 hours of the in-store experience, retail clients can quickly make adjustments that generate not only happier customers, but also revenue.
