Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
Salespod, Inc., the maker of the field sales and retail merchandising automation tool Salespod, has reported significant growth in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) sector during the first 9 months of 2013. Salespod has added over 50 CPG sales and merchandising organizations so far in 2013, with beverage and snack foods representing the highest growth. Salespod drives accountability and efficiency in Outside Sales and Merchandising organizations by tracking and storing the time and location of every interaction that Field Reps have with clients, and by making this history available to managers and Field Reps. In addition to Field Activity Management, Salespod brings valuable data capture and analysis tools to field merchandising organizations, with flexible electronic forms and structured SKU based data collection tools.
“These tools are particularly well suited for the CPG space”, according to Matthew Brogie, Salespod’s COO. “Salespod enables CPG organizations to collect data about their own products, market conditions and competitive activity.”
Salespod is used in many industries to drive efficiency and accountability into Outside Sales, Merchandising and Marketing organizations. In the Consumer Goods sector, Salespod is used by Field Reps that perform retail audits and merchandising functions such as placing displays, performing trade compliance audits and competitive activity surveys.
In some cases these reps also use Salespod to build replenishment orders, including selling product ‘off the truck’.
Managers can see where these activities are taking place in real time on the Salespod Web Console, and can communicate with their reps through the tool. The Salespod tool has seen significant growth in the CPG sector with hundreds of new users in Europe, North and South America, South Asia, and Australia.
Salespod is used in many industries to drive visibility, efficiency and accountability into Outside Sales, Merchandising and Marketing organizations.
