The report evaluates 19 companies providing retail execution and monitoring solutions (REM), specifically examining retail merchandising, distributor management, van sales and direct store delivery (DSD). A key finding in the report observes that current REM deployments have been linked to proven sales force productivity and product sales improvement, a fact that is driving significant vendor growth in this market. Pepperi’s complete and configurable platform combines mobile sales automation , merchandising, and B2B e-commerce on all mobile devices, providing consumer goods companies with decisive sales agility both in store and online. According to Gartner analyst, Ed Porter, brands and wholesalers should “evaluate Pepperi if [they] want a solution that integrates B2B e-commerce or when product order capabilities are a high priority.” Porter also notes that Pepperi should be considered “… when a high level of flexibility and configuration, or global deployment experience is desired.” The Gartner report goes on to explain that a cloud-based platform means faster deployments, configuration speed and flexibility, and enables more-frequent upgrades. Pepperi is a cloud-based global solution that provides manufacturers with the Gartner-identified business benefits now required from an advanced REM solution, including increased sales force efficiency and effectiveness, better sales force and retail store compliance, and increased purchase orders that are more accurate.
