StayinFront and Mondelēz Complete Roll Out of a Single Sales Force Automation Solution to Support One Way of Selling and Perfect Store Compliance Across Europe and Russia
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM (15 June 2017) – StayinFront, a leader in mobile cloud solutions for the consumer goods industry, announced the successful deployment of StayinFront TouchCG® across 23 markets in Europe and Russia for global snacking powerhouse, Mondelēz International.
Mondelēz merchandisers, sales reps and distributors in the 23 markets now have a single system with standardised in-store processes and consistent tracking and measures. This common approach to capturing standardised data and reporting in one system is enabling Mondelēz to increase productivity and drive Perfect Store sales through greater consistency in selling practises, training, measures and retail execution, as well through market-level development actions plans.
StayinFront’s mobile software has been configured for many different roles and routes to market. Roles such as merchandisers and van sales representatives, which require limited, but specialised, functionality, will use StayinFront TouchCG LT™, a light, easy-to-use and cost-effective smartphone application. Some markets will also use image recognition to quickly identify shelf conditions and promotional compliance.
“We have faced and overcome many challenges along the way, but always with great determination and team spirit,” said Pete Ford, MEU Deployment Lead, Retail Execution IS CoE at Mondelēz. “This is a great achievement and something we should all feel very proud of. I’d like to extend a special thank you to our partners from StayinFront, whose commitment and tenacity made this challenging task a reality.”
