Point of Sales Tracking

Retailers and manufacturers are constantly under pressure to develop products and services that maximize sales and profit, and keep customers coming back.

Success relies on having the most up-to-date retail sales data, combined with an understanding of which products and services are performing well in the market – and which are not. With this knowledge, you can set clear strategies for commercial growth and increase return on investment.

Our Point of Sales (POS) Tracking experts will keep you fully updated on which retail and technical consumer goods products are selling, where, when and at what price. We can help you to track your market share and brand performance and benchmark this against the competition’s.

Discover which channels are popular with retailers and manufacturers and why. Obtain a detailed understanding of global and local market trends from a “big picture” macro level, down to individual product level, and assess their impact on online and offline outlets, on a monthly and weekly basis.

We have the world’s largest retail panel. We track products and deliver insights based on both retailer and reseller actual sales data. Using this intelligence, we can help you align product availability with the expected market demand, as well as to optimize product assortment, distribution and pricing strategy.

To follow is a list of the product categories that we track with our panel. The number of products covered across the globe is extensive, yet not all are tracked in every country. For further information on availability in your country of interest, please contact us.
