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.

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.
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.
With ouvar® PRE-ORDER, your Reps can express interest in, and pre-order a POS
item for a retailer. From here, your Brand team have a more accurate order
quantity, reducing wastage and therefore reducing future storage costs.
