Scan Based Trading

Scan Based Trading, powered by Prescient™ provides retail trading partners with a distinct competitive advantage through scan sales visibility that sets the supply chain in motion and is a proven procurement strategy that guarantees sales results and minimizes or eliminates inventory.

Park City Group’s Scan Based Trading solution aligns interests of retailer and supplier directing the focus where it belongs: stocked shelves and increased sales. By employing Park City Group’s collaborative Scan Based Trading solution, you will also have shared visibility with your suppliers of store/item level shrink, perpetual inventory and accurate daily POS data.

Park City Group Scan Based Trading is a powerful tool which helps retail trading partners drive operational efficiencies, increase distribution, and extract top-notch performance from their supply chains. Our web-based application provides visibility into store-level product movement, allows suppliers to spend more time merchandising product, and removes time-consuming operational drudgery from the retailer-supplier relationship.

Take a minute to assess whether your company should be considering SBT:

  • Are you losing sales because you’re spending too much time checking in, and
    not enough time merchandising your products?
  • How would your ordering and replenishment process change if you had
    greater visibility into shelf-level inventory and POS data?
  • Could you expand distribution if you had a risk-free way to put more product
    on your trading partners shelves?
  • Is your back room costing you margins because of inaccurate counts,
    unauthorized deliveries, and the labor needed to staff it?
  • How much time and resource power do you put into resolving
    invoice discrepancies?
  • How do you currently manage shrink with your trading partners?
  • What challenges do you have around shrink?
