ADUS SERVICES: Outsourcing Sales & Merchandising for Supermarket Chains
“Within the cost cutting policies we are urged to undertake, there emerges an important problem in effectively supporting sales and merchandising for companies like ours. After our first contact with ADUS, we focused on their meticulous approach to our needs and their tailor made proposal where it was also presented to VIAP MENTEL the detailed daily schedule of visits to the points of sales where our products were placed on-the-shelf. Convinced by their expert positioning, we quickly bypassed our business attitude and hesitation and assigned the Merchandising and order taking to ADUS. The teams of ADUS salespeople and merchandisers are experienced, pleasant and willing to treat our products as their own products, while there is a continuous information flow and frequent meetings that allow us to have a complete picture of our products in the supermarkets, while they always assist us in resolving issues that make our sales more effective”
