“ I start my day with Vendor Pulse to get a clear sense of how each of our products are doing at retail among our independent retailers.
As a vendor, we’re accustomed to seeing information on what we are able to sell into our customers’ stores. But with Vendor Pulse, we get real time analytics on what’s actually selling, allowing us to gain a much better understanding for the merchandise in our line that is working best at retail.
To get the most out of opportunities when we see accelerated sell through on one our items we can use the Vendor Pulse relationship to reach out to our retailers to ensure efficient reorders so that we maintain strong inventory turn and minimize or even eliminate lost sales.
Many vendors confuse sell-in and sell-through; Vendor Pulse provides a clear, comprehensive picture. ” - Slav Galkin, Gems One
