Give your team an unrivalled understanding of your shopper activity by putting the most powerful insights onto your desktop.
Perform an independent control vs. exposed study of any activity in almost any retailer within 2 weeks of the activity ending. The study is viewable from the cloud and forms part of an evolving library of data and insight that your team can access over time.
Perhaps even more importantly, the platform gives you access to the anonymised trend data from SMG’s total campaign database - over 2,000 studies and growing rapidly.
Even the largest FMCGs struggle to learn quickly as there just aren’t enough campaigns in a year - with PlanVault, you can crowdsource insight and learn 10 times faster.
Automated A/B testing of anything in store
If you can book it, we can measure it. Any touchpoint from a shelf talker to digital screens to secondary space - as long as it’s not in all stores, we can create a bespoke control group and analyse the effects at SKU, brand and category level. Studies can be carried out in almost any multiple retailer from supermarkets to petrol stations.
