This initiative allows merchandisers to scan products at store level for 100% accuracy of in stock conditions. All information is transmitted real time to our server at the end of each store call. B&A can provide actionable out of stock information at the cooperative (group / member) level. Additionally, store credits, if needed, will be issued on the spot via our wireless 4” printers and will include an electronic copy of the store associate’s signature. Finally and most importantly a complete list of all our principals’ out of stock items with the chain’s unique order code numbers is printed at the end of the visit and given to the manager to include on their next order!
