"It's not the strongest, fittest, fastest or smartest that will outlast others and ultimately survive, but those who adapt to change" – Charles Darwin

Retail has always been dynamic, but never more so than it is today. Information needs to be accessible instantly and decision making needs to be well informed. Retailers need to have 24 hour a day access to information. Often it is a battle against time. It’s not easy to have the right information to make informed decisions. At Zumo Retail we are helping by expanding our portfolio of retailer specific web products.

Zumo Audits

Our premier product is a bespoke website for measuring retail execution standards. Zumo Audits takes the old maxim “What gets measured gets done” into the retail execution space. Traditionally retailers have used a “tick and flick” checklist for assessing store performance. Typically this was time consuming, inaccurate, not able to be used for comparative purposes and sometimes completed away from the store itself. With Zumo Audits we use our trademarked FAR SPPACE™ process to compare, contrast and measure in-store performance.

The site allows a retailer to do their own measurement and then compare the results with previous history. There is the opportunity to put commentary in for each element suggesting solutions to the issues noted.

In a group or brand of stores, each store is assessed not only by the store itself, but also by the Territory Manager/BDM/KAM’s. This immediately allows comparisons between the scores (Store versus brand representative), but also by territory, state, national, demographic and geographic areas. Audits are tailored specifically for each retailer – within the guiding principles of the FAR SPPACE™ process. Contact us for more information.

Zumo Calculators

Retailers, whether based in a head office or on the shop floor, are confronted with making decisions based on business metrics. Many retailers work out what to do based on their experience alone. However, better decisions can be made by marrying experience and the metrics. Zumo Calculators has over 80 retail specific calculators. Each calculator is designed in the same format to make navigation easy. The format includes a detailed explanation and an easy to use process for using the calculator.

Zumo Calculators makes decision making fast, easy and accurate. As an example, you can quickly establish which suppliers/vendors are offering you the best trading terms. You can also compare and contrast trading terms. Understand and manage GMROII, GMROS, GMROF, GMROL, IRR’s and many other retail metrics. To make the site even faster and easier to use, save your favourite calculators and review previous performance with our saved calculators function. This site is a must for both category managers and retail managers/owners. See the site now at www.zumocalculators.com

Zumo People

Zumo People is designed specifically to make selecting the right people for the right roles easy. Harnessing the power of the ProScan© survey tool, Zumo People allows you to identify personality types and match staff to their roles. This is a vitally important task, since people are a retailer’s largest asset and often, the largest controllable cost. To help make life easier, Zumo People features free downloads to help develop Job Descriptions and to guide you in the interview process. The ProScan© survey tool provides a 20 page pdf report and a 20 minute “call back” from one of our representatives to discuss the report in detail. This outstanding tool offers deep insight into the element that lets you drive your business forward, people. Click here to go to www.zumopeople.com
