One of the major chores of a manufacturer managing POS data is the collection and consolidation of distributor data. Although there are some industry guidelines and standards for POS and sales reporting, gathering a similar output from each distributor is challenging. Every distributor has their own systems to extract this data and some are more capable or willing to provide this output than others.
Budde Marketing receives POS data from more than 500 distributors, totaling over 3000 POS files each month. Each of the 500+ distributors has a direct line to send their monthly data to our Homer Glen office. Our dedicated office staff works with your distribution channel throughout the month as we collect the entire channel’s data.
