The retail industry faces a variety of challenges, including online competitors, discounting, and supply chain management—all of which impact margins. So retailers must look for ways to improve the customer experience at the same time they optimize labor scheduling and merchandising to drive sales and profitability.

How We Help
Improving Customer Experience
Our retail management consultants work closely with your retail team to understand customer requirements and optimize your resources. Using on-the-ground observation and close collaboration with managers, we learn about local store types, merchandising layouts, customer flow, and traffic patterns. Armed with this knowledge, we develop store optimization strategies to grow conversion rates and order size through intelligent merchandising, point-of-sale displays, and selling techniques. We also help develop optimal staffing guidelines to provide more effective and useful customer engagement.
But we don’t just make recommendations and walk away. To ensure consistent performance and predictable results in the future, we work with you to put the changes into place and build the capabilities of frontline associates and managers by providing coaching support, tools, and training.
