Merchandising compliance has been one of the foremost challenges vexing brand manufacturers and retailers since the dawn of modern retail. Manufacturers fund special in-store merchandising initiatives and failure to execute at store-level harms their return on investment. Retailers lose out on potential sales that in-store merchandising is supposed to deliver when execution is poor or just does not happen in the first place.
Mobile technology is coming to the rescue as a growing number of manufacturers and retailers have the ability to leverage the smartphones already in the hands of their associates to collect data, identify issues, and respond in realtime. Cloud-based solutions tied to mobile browsers or apps open the door to increasing merchandising compliance, sharing best practices, and growing sales.
Here are 5 Ways to turn Compliance Data into Actionable Intelligence...

Pricing is critical to an organization's success or failure. Our innovative and user-friendly price automation solution will transform your ability to tightly control all aspects of product pricing. How is our solution different?
Pricing is a process. Unlike other price optimization solutions, PRICEXPERT™ was developed as an integrated methodology because processes can be repeated systematically, and then expanded over broader ranges of product types and categories. Every execution of the process gives the analyst more insight into product metrics, resulting in more effective and precise pricing actions.
Ease of use is paramount in order for complex analytics to be truly useful within an application. Our philosophy is that for improvements in pricing processes to occur, a transparent, systematic process must be embodied within the pricing solution. Through the use of data and statistical modeling, a structured process has been formed that mirrors best in class elements of six-sigma design, best business practices, and the latest scientific price optimization methodology.

SuperValu Corporate Retail Pricing system utilizes a Rules Based pricing program built around the NCR HQ pricing system, generating both Regular and TPR retails. We generate Base Zone retails using a regional lead Chain Competitor target with incremental plus and minus zones.
Regional Pricing Rules:
System maintained Family Group relationships.
Private Label / National Brand Gap management.
Goal is to have the Private Label (PL) item linked to the appropriate National Brand (NB) item with a big enough gap to encourage PL sales while also showing a better Penny Profit than the NB item.
Regular retails are generated based on
Vendor cost changes (maintain margin).
Regional lead competitor change (align with competition).
Competitive surveys are on a 6 week rotation covering all Unified items / commodities that the competitor carries.
Top tier sensitive items surveyed every other week.
+ & - Zones with rounding to 5 & 9, 4 & 8, or 9’s only. Under $1.00 rounds to 3, 5, 7, &9. Base and plus zones round up and minus zones round down.
TPR’s (Temporary Price Reductions) are generated based on:
80 % pass through ($1.00 allowance goes to Unified customer and a $0.80 reduction of their retail goes to their customer).
TPR’s must have a minimum savings of $0.04.
TPR’s must have a minimum of two weeks shelf life.
TPR’s round down to 5 & 9 except for those under $1.00 which round down to 3, 5, 7, & 9.
TPR’s run for the full length of the deal.
This process results in increased margin $’s and increased sales over the regular priced item.
SuperValu has three tiers of Sensitive items which allow our customer to set their Base Zones at a higher level yet select a more competitive zone for the Sensitive items.
Customers can utilize the Base and Incremental rules at the Type Business (TB), Department, or Category level. TB might equal Grocery, but Dept might be Cigs, Tobacco, Specialty, or Hispanic.
We have three Custom Price options for our customer to utilize, with on-demand and weekly automated reports to help manage them.
Locked Custom: Target Margin resulting from a custom price is maintained if there are cost changes in the future. We also generate a TPR based on the custom price instead of the Zone price.
Manual Custom: Customer maintains all changes on the regular retail once a custom price has been set. System will generate a TPR based on the custom price instead of the Zone price.
EDLP Custom: Customer maintains all changes on the regular retail once a custom price has been set. No TPR generation.
Our on demand Custom Report shows all items that a store has a custom retail on along with the corresponding Zone Retail and the Custom Rule.
Our weekly report is emailed to the store showing items that the store has a custom price on and the Base Zone has had either a cost or competitive change on that week.
DSD Pricing (Direct Store Delivery):
Store specific DSD pricing is currently available in the Oregon, Washington, and Southern California regions.
SuperValu provides you with files based on your store specific cost, retails and TPR’s. The store determines the TGM, Rounding Rules, TPR pass through by DSD commodity and Unified manages it for you based on updated vendor information.
This allows the store to do back door receiving with their current effective cost and maintain their DSD margins and promotions based on their competitive situation.
