Foko Retail to Bring Shoppers Back to Brick & Mortar with Enhanced Platform

Gatineau, Quebec, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/

Foko Retail today unveiled new compliance features to its visual communications platform that will ultimately improve customer experiences for multi-location retailers. Foko Retail’s advanced platform provides the science behind merchandising and execution to determine which displays are driving sales, and deliver these insights to company headquarters so they can make data-informed decisions.

The new compliance enhancements build upon existing functionalities, such as a visibility module–a real time window of what’s happening in each location–and analytics–instant insights and performance reporting for executive leadership. Now retailers can combine these capabilities to assign tasks and surveys, request photos and give feedback on submissions in real-time, so stores can reach compliance faster.

“Brand consistency is critical to customer loyalty, yet the ability for headquarters to ensure merchandise displays and store layouts are compliant across locations can take weeks,” said Marc Gingras, CEO of Foko Retail. “By helping headquarters gain greater visibility into their retail stores and generating data insights, our engaging platform can reduce this process to hours. We save retailers and brands precious time, which can be better spent on other aspects of customer experience.”

Foko Retail’s platform delivers both the art and science of retail execution. Its visual, social media-style interface provides retail teams with an easy and engaging way to communicate in real time, so they can better share best practices, receive feedback on displays and resolve execution problems faster. The platform also provides scientific features, such as advanced compliance workflows, which enable retailers to track the execution of brand guidelines and generate detailed analytics on store performance.

In just two years, Foko Retail has acquired over 60 customers and now works with some of the world’s largest brands in retail, including Nike, Whole Foods, Helly Hansen and Club Monaco. To book a walkthrough, please visit www.fokoretail.com.
