Merchant Analytic Solutions Partners With Major Retailers To Mitigate Their Revenue, Margin and Profit Losses Through Identification and Reduction Of Sales Reducing Activities (“SRA”).
MAS can effect a sustainable bottom line improvement of 100 to 300 basis points (1% to 3%) from a retailer’s existing sales.
Successful retailers have done the heavy lifting. They’ve built their brand, attracted the customers, sourced and merchandised the products, executed at the store level and converted the sale. However, despite their best efforts, not every dollar of hard-earned sales, margin and income will make it through to their bottom line. The reason: a high concentration of Sales Reducing Activities (SRA) in legitimate transactions, process breakdowns which can erode margin and cause shrink (inventory losses through theft and other fraudulent activities), which erode both margin and shrink as well as impact incremental sales capture. Statistics show that, across all retail sectors, SRA can negatively effect a retailer’s sales and, therefore, margins and profits on sales by an average 3% to 4% annually.
Merchant Analytic Solutions has developed proprietary methodologies and software that expand the reach of traditional loss prevention measures and point-of-sale transaction monitoring. MAS delivers a comprehensive, proactive and powerful solution that significantly reduces the impact of all forms of SRA. MAS is so certain it can create measurable bottom line improvement, it will agree to be compensated through a “gain share” plan, where it will earn a percentage of the profit improvement.
