Availability is the biggest challenge facing the sell-out potential, growth and penetration of a brand. Especially during sales and periods of peak demand for products, FMCG companies are forced to respond quickly to ongoing changes in competition for the availability of their products on the shelf. We have used our extensive database of field data gatherers to collect comprehensive real-time insights into what is happening with in-store execution at the trading peaks, when and what  problems arise during peak out of stock trading, what negative effect they pose to manufacturers and how they can be avoided without losing profits or reduce losses during at this periods, which is extremely important for them.
