Building agile point-of-sale marketing supply chains The rise of online retail has transformed the consumer shopping experience. Even so, brick and mortar remains a significant channel for retailers and brands worldwide. Even “Gen Z” buyers–the most digitally engaged of all consumer groups still have a strong preference for in-store shopping. Today’s consumers are experience hungry and savvy shoppers, making it even more challenging to grab their attention in-store. Challenges Creating distinctive assets that reach consumers and refresh brand-linked memories consistently in all media is no easy feat. The in-store experience must match other channels in creativity and message to create a seamless customer experience. That means innovative point-of-sale marketing material needs to reach stores on-time, be installed easily and fit with the physical requirements of each store. Missing that mark is not uncommon. On average, thirty percent of all point-of-sale marketing material is never installed. That type of wasted spend is just one reason marketers are looking to understand the details of their cost base and drive continual improvements across their point-of-sale marketing process.
