How FIGJAM is helping distribution companies function more efficiently with changing consumer demands.

Apr 21, 2020Field Merchandising Software


To respond to unprecedented changes in consumer demand, FMCG distributors are prioritising rapid, regular, and data-driven changes to their products and in-store merchandising displays. There is no doubt that the corona virus outbreak is influencing the way consumers think and therefore their buying behaviour.

 Quick, easy access to products has never been more important and re-stocking shelves never more frequent. This makes communicating these change-overs as they happen even more significant.

 How exactly is FIGJAM impacting current business operations?

1. Remote work.

 FIGJAM’s software was designed with remote work in mind. It tells you who’s where, what they’re doing and keeps a record of all work activities carried out with the single purpose of helping business achieve its goals. FIGJAM is currently working to increase transparency, productivity and structured management across the board. Read more:3 ways FIGJAM allows teams to work remotely
