Our sales team works in lock step between client and customer. Our job is to understand what our clients goals are and for us to take that information to develop a strategy to attain those goals. We use our collective knowledge to determine what we believe to be the best course of action and develop a high-level action plan that we have our client sign-off on prior to any business.
Once a program is sold into a customer we will then work on a strategy for maintaining the program by making sure we are trying to capitalize on all opportunities, be it being aware and apart of all reviews or developing additional initiatives to maximize sales. Long standing account management and keeping distribution is why we pay such close attention to the details from Sales > Admin > Merchandising.
We employee a professional retail merchandising team that covers all stores for Schnucks, Dierbergs, Shop 'N Save and our local independents (roughly 180+ locations).
Our administrative team works on the details of orders, pricing, deductions, new item forms, etc. They are the cog in the wheel that are on the front lines with our buyers.
