Niven can help you navigate from chaos to calm

by | Apr 1, 2021

Picture this: You’ve just decided on a new category solution for your brand, one that will simplify the customer shopping experience at big box retailers and independent dealers. Congratulations! Now for your reality check:
  • Planograms vary across the country
  • Hundreds of display product pieces are required
  • Limited forecasting is available
  • Certain materials have long lead times
  • Warehousing capabilities are limited
  • The ordering process is dated
  • Multiple billing scenarios are required, AND
  • Your resources for managing this program internally are limited

If you’re the person who’s been designated to execute this program, a feeling of impending chaos would not be surprising.
