Winning at Retail

Bringing products and communications to life is our forte. We take end-to-end ownership of in-store execution and deliver excellence, always.

Our contribution to Clients Businesses

We understand that with increasing business pressures, internally managing execution through promoters, merchandisers and field agents can become extremely stretched and challenging for sales teams. Hiring, training, deployment, monitoring and reporting of these extended teams is not their core role and execution suffers.

We also understand that execution is critical to achievement of overall sales goals and that’s where we come in. We take ownership. We partner to run alongside you, to take complete responsibility of your execution and deliver excellence from hiring, training, planning, deployment, monitoring and reporting of every resource and task.

As India’s leading field merchandising, marketing and in-store promoter agencies – with us as partners, you can expect higher sales and execution efficiency. With our diverse experience and assisted by our proprietary field marketing software, you will experience the following key benefits:

Excellence in Execution

  • Adequate people availability and deployment

  • Trained and motivated team

  • Compliance with work plans – routing and deployment

  • Prevention of diversion of resources to other tasks

  • Gap Analysis for availability of stocks, POSM, promotion, assets, permissions, etc.

Transparency in Reporting

  • Field marketing app-based measurement of output

In-Store Promoters

Mobile Field Reporting – FRAMe

PPMS was the first to deploy large-scale, mobile-based reporting in 2008.

GPS-enabled, and with an easy intuitive user interface – FRAMe allows for daily work allocation, journey/route planning, and guided work completion for front-line employees.

Managing attendance, recording metrics on availability, forward shelf shares, execution, assets, GPS and time stamping, scanning, signature and anything else you may want are easily configurable to deliver a data collection and reporting experience par excellence.
