GfK Geo+ Distribution Partners

Your success depends on the efficient exploitation of potential by each of your sales partners. But measuring this performance across your entire network requires an intimate understanding of the interplay between market conditions and location attributes.

  • Which factors contribute most to the success of your distribution partners?
  • How much potential is located in the catchment areas of your retail partners?
  • Where can you find new distribution partners to expand your network?

What we do

Our consultancy answers these questions by giving you a detailed breakdown of the attributes associated with your sales partner sites. We do this by cross-referencing your data with our detailed insights on target group potential, catchment area size, demand level and other factors unique to your market. The resulting typology identifies regions and retail clusters with favorable conditions for your products. And it gives you an easy-to-follow road map for adjusting and managing your distribution partner network on the basis of objective indicators.

How you benefit

We classify your distribution partners by local retail and demand potential. This allows you to objectively benchmark sales partners and their retail environments, which brings your market opportunities into sharp focus. Use our insights to identify optimal sales partners and channels based on location type and regional demand. Our consultancy also lets you optimize your regional product placement and investment in marketing, POS promotions and product launches across your network.
