Gauge in-store compliance and gather competitive intelligence
mobileRetail lets you easily create and publish surveys to your field reps based on criteria such as outlet type, retail chain, region and more. It’s easy to design and publish surveys on-demand and begin to see survey results within minutes of publishing to the field. When a survey needs to be completed for a particular store, reps will see the survey request within their visit details when they enter the store.
With mobileRetail, you can:
- Ensure every product is accurately stocked, priced and displayed to drive competitiveness on the shelf

Sharing digital sales materials with customers
mobileRetail lets you share digital selling tools like product catalogs, sales sheets, videos and presentations with store managers and buyers. This functionality works perfectly when retail sales reps are offline, so it’s always easy for your field workforce to search for and share up-to-date materials that have been published to their device.
mobileRetail even allows you to designate when and where sales materials should be shared with customers. Field reps can easily manage and access their collateral library by marking items as favorites and receiving alerts when new media items are added.
With mobile collateral distribution, your field representatives can share your most up-to-date marketing materials when they are face-to-face with customers. They can even email these materials to customers right from their device, enabling just-in-time delivery of your messaging. All collateral sharing is captured in the app as part of the customer’s history.
