Tracking Solutions for General Management
Point-of-Sale Marketing, Line Cleaning and Tap Handle Surveying
When you’re responsible for productivity and success across all aspects of a beverage distributor’s business, so much of your capacity comes down to what you can automate. You may have to worry about everything, but you simply can’t do it all — nor can you directly control how quickly the job gets done without you. What you can do, though, is provide your personnel with the processes and tools they need to do their jobs quickly and efficiently.
Most distributors have reaped the rewards of automating some parts of their operations — but what about point-of-sale (POS) marketing, line cleaning and tap handle surveying?
When you start to think about the money lost from reps placing orders with handwritten notes, sign shops reworking incorrect collateral and general managers applying a “spray-and-pray” tactic to marketing spend, or a paper-based system for tracking line cleaning and tap handle surveying. It’s frustrating and wasteful.
No matter how much product you’re selling and delivering annually, you have a lot to gain from a process that controls labor costs, errors and business intelligence. OnTrak Software offers the only web-based system specially designed to maximize on each of these opportunities and more.
