Assess Your Channels and Enable Omnichannel

Our consultants will assess your channel mix and put together a plan to meet customers’ modern experience expectations.

  • We’ll assess which of the 20+ different channels you’re currently using, and ensure you have the best mix of digital, physical and hybrid channels.

  • We’ll make recommendations to ensure you get the most out of each channel type.

Optimize Your Retail Footprint

As part of your channel strategy, our consultants can help optimize your retail footprint for your market.

  • We’ll gather information about your store locations, including the overall running costs/lease end-dates for each store, number of employees, and revenue figures.

  • We’ll assess your mix of corporate vs. franchise stores to ensure balance and determine if franchising makes sense for your market.

  • We’ll identify your competitors’ strengths and weaknesses and assess how your locations compare to theirs.

  • Our analysis will reveal underperforming locations that can be closed, as well as ideal locations for new store openings.
