Why Off Scan Alert?

On-shelf availability of products means that your customers will always have products available. As simple as it may sound, there are multiple complications associated with this. Various factors drive on-shelf availability, including efficient supply chain & logistics, good coordination among suppliers, manufacturers, warehouses, and Retailers.

Regular on-shelf availability ensures that the company will not suffer losses due to the unavailability of products. For various reasons, products’ unavailability can affect sales, brand visibility, and competitive edge. Here is what we can provide to improve your on-shelf availability of products.
