Pricing & Promotion Trends
Whether your pricing involves a specific strategy such as an EDLP, a high/low calendar, or is being supported via CPG Supplier promotion programs, historical and post-event analysis is still critical in improving impacts at every turn. Our templates leverage automated, dynamic text to indicate significant changes as well as sections for manual write-ups where users can input their explanation of findings.
Salient’s time-series charts also include areas for placing notes to describe specific timeframes along with the overall trend. In this example, annotations have been added to explain percent drops in sales and profit due to ineffective pricing that occurred for the span of a few months. Our templates can also be loaded with client-gathered pricing information from surveys as well as syndicated sources such as Nielsen, IRI, and Retail Velocity.

Out of Stock
Our out-of-stock analysis template helps managers identify potential distribution, supplier, or store-level execution issues.
Users can adjust their focus to look at various aggregate levels by customer and product (such as by Channel, Market Area, Chain, Banner, Supplier, Brand, Package, or SKU) to determine the frequency and value of potential out-of-stocks, or even expose potential issues at the supplier level.
Store & SKU Level Drill Down
Drill down in the Product List to visualize gains and losses by store across a gauge trellis. Double-clicking any row on the right, re-grouping data as needed will filter the gauges, as well as the corresponding trends by store.
Give your vendors improved visibility into actual consumer demand. Allow them to better control stocking levels and improve their fill rates.
