Research Services:

Category Management at store level has gained considerable importance for FMCG organizations during the recent years. This is not only true for growing Modern Trade but also the traditional behind-the-counter stores. Implementing the issued plan-o-grams at stores and correct display of POS material are now essentials of sales teams’ performance. These efforts also result in a struggle amongst companies to gain better shelf space and shelf share. Better presence & impact at store means better chances of making the sale.

These changes in the store environment are beginning to have more and more impact on the shoppers and their behaviour. Shopper is exposed to more products and marketing communication than ever before. Shopping behaviour analyses identify the subtle triggers that help or hinder a shopper action at the point of purchase.

Our Research Services are customized to deliver insights that will help our clients optimize their Selling Performance at retail and secondly generate deep understanding & insights on Shopper Purchase and Usage behaviour. Our Research Services are generally tailored for each industry to fit their needs, however, these can be broadly categorised into the following types.
