Join the Discussion: Why do #retail stores still have cash registers? via @retailwire http://ow.ly/Lj2fL
RetailWire Discussion: Armed with smartphones, consumers have literally become the new point of sale. Yet, retailers are still trying to herd them through checkout lanes. Should cash registers and POS terminals be phased out? What obvious and less obvious hurdles do you see around widespread mobile self-checkout?

Results Count ...everything else is conversation!
Introduction
Proven expertise with 30 years experience...
 
Integrated Marketing Solutions started in 1983 when Chris Petersen formed a consulting group focused on retail. Over the past 30 years of working with manufacturers and retailers, the IMS value proposition for our client partners has remained the same:
 
Results Count ... everything else is conversation.
 

While we appreciate conversation as much as anyone, today’s competitive environment demands fact based intelligence to drive measurable results and ROI. That is who we are and what we do.

Our Results Count philosophy is reflected in our 5 Core Principles of Engagement, and our commitment of measuring all aspects of strategy, processes, investments and execution:
 
1. You can’t aim without targets.
2. Improvement requires keeping score.
3. What gets measured gets done.
4. What pays off gets done first.
5. Accountability is not a four letter word.
 
IMS works with Manufacturers to profitably grow retail sales
IMS specializes in working with vendors selling consumer products through retailers. We have extensive experience worldwide. Our Fortune 500 consumer products clients leverage IMS experience and expertise to:
 
  • Develop competitive go-to-market strategies
  • Optimize category performance and profitability
  • Measure marketing effectiveness and ROI
  • Lower cost-to-serve and reduce risks
  • Improve both sell through and contribution margin
 
IMS works with Retailers to improve performance and partnerships
We also work with retailers to improve the customer experience in-store and on the internet. IMS specializes in designing strategies and the tests to identify and quantify what really works to produce results "in the trenches" on the retail selling floor, and online.
 
IMS enables clients to leverage Retail knowledge, trends and best practices

IMS Retail University workshops have been offered for the past 18 years. IMS Retail U now has 14,000 graduates from over 39 countries worldwide. The IMS Retail University curriculum is customized for the entry level employee to the executive leadership teams. We also conduct a variety of strategic briefings on go-to-market strategies.
