What is mobile store audits?

Mobile store audits is a technique used by FMCG retailers to understand the levels of product visibility and availability of their products in a store. Retail managers are often left in the dark about the state of their products in stores as without store audits, it is impossible to measure. Mobile store audits allow for feedback from a ‘auditor’, often in the form of a report that measures the product presence and placement in a store.

Mobile store audits is a vital tool for FMCG retailers as it not only measures levels of product availability but also provides information on areas that they need to improve. By using mobile store audits, retailers receive a detailed and unbiased report of product presence in their stores which can help ensure that high quality and engaging shopping experiences are always delivered. A great shopping experience will guarantee that the customer will come back!
