Specialty Audits

Merchandise Availability
Ensuring merchandise is on the sales floor and properly placed is vital for retailers and manufacturers to sustain sales. During peak shopping times management must ensure staff are keeping up with sales by re-stocking and re-organizing merchandise. A merchandise availability audit will determine if products are stocked to planogram specifications and provide insight on overall product availability.

Pricing Checks
Inaccurate pricing results in customer inconvenience, dissatisfaction and distrust. It takes one overcharge incident to significantly damage your goodwill with a customer. An undercharge may be of benefit to the customer but it is detrimental to your bottom line. A ProVantage pricing check audit can reign in overcharge and undercharge discrepancies and test for scanner accuracy.

Compliance Audits
Checking for identification decreases potential employee liability for selling to an underage person. Failure to check for proper identification can lead to criminal or civil charges. A ProVantage compliance audit will report on full or partial compliance for a specific program, store or brand. A compliance audit also reduces the potential liability for owners, who could be sued for any illegal sales that result in an injury to a third party. Complete compliance is not only ethical, but ensuring employees check for buyer identification on mature rated products is required by law.
