Point Of Sale Intelligence

Sembassy´s Point of Sale Intelligence lets you see things through the user´s eyes. The community checks any PoS, using their smartphones to provide us with geo tagged, time stamped photos.


Having little information about availability and placement of products in local stores leads to out of stock situations, inaccurate pricing and wrong placements. Inefficient marketing operations and losses in sales are the consequence. Our client wanted to ensure, if his brands are available in all stores, and the level of implementation of the promotional and sales material implementation.


Sembassy tailored a dedicated research plan and hired the service community, to check the availability, pricing and presentation of products. The community did display audits, checked product availability, promotional compliance, and competitor activity in 700+ stores. Sembassy took care of the project and quality management and delivered a structured management report.
