Frequently Asked Questions.

icon question mark in speech bubble

How does improving my store operations impact my overall channel health?

Poorly run stores are everywhere and have a huge impact on your overall channel profitability. We found one telco who had such a poor retail dealer model that they were over-paying by around 75%! Another had such poor inventory controls we took >$5M USD from their balance sheet in one year without impacting availability or sales.
