view inventory across all storage locations

Many FMCG companies store their POS material across several storage locations
such as large 3PL warehouses, factories, local company-owned sheds and even
rep’s cars. This makes it difficult to know where your POS is and how much of your
POS is actually reaching its desired destination.

POS asset
tracking

follow your POS movement step by step

ouvar® tracks each POS item from rep order to activation at the retailer. Each catalogue

correctly and used as intended - on display in retail.

  • Minimise leakage
  • Ensure your POS reaches the Retailer
  • Maximise your POS performance at retail
  • Improve your POS forecasting, plus
  • Report on POS uptake by Retailer, and

reduce POS
storage costs

ouvar® will reduce your POS storage costs by:

  • removing leakage

    Some FMCG companies are experiencing POS Leakage; this is when POS items are
    ordered from the warehouse and don’t make it to the retailer. ouvar® removes POS
    leakage with the POS Tracking Tool. With no POS leakage, your Brand Managers will
    either reduce future manufacturing order quantities and therefore reduce storage costs, or increase brand activation at retail win - win.

  • better forecasting

    With ouvar® your team have access to historical order and activation data.
    You’ll see which retailers activate and which don’t. Next time your Brand Manager
    purchases POS items from a supplier, they can refine their manufacture order
    quantity and avoid wastage, which means less storage costs.

  • power to negotiate

    If your company uses an external Storage Provider, your Reps are probably
    ordering their POS using your Storage Provider’s online ordering facility. This
    makes it difficult for your company to use another, cheaper storage provider, as it
    would be inconvenient for your Reps to be using multiple online ordering facilities.

    ouvar®'s catalogue is your own online POS ordering facility. Now your reps order from
    your own platform and you have the freedom to store your POS with anyone,
    anywhere. For your next POS shipment, source best price from the wider market
    and negotiate! You are no longer locked into one Storage Provider.
