09/2015 | React to in-store problems in real time to achieve outstanding sales results

Lets say your product is sold on 4 continents, 27 countries, through 887 retail outlets. How do you make sure your product is available everywhere, properly presented,  and the promotional campaign that you had devised for it is going forward according to plan everywhere at the same time? Sounds like a pretty big task, doesn’t it?


Naturally you receive reports from your country offices, sales reps, partner vendors, and promotional companies, but they are often weeks late, in an excel sheet, lacking crucial information that enables you to react to any kind of problem in time. This results in poor visibility, wasted money and ultimately decreased sales.


What if you could monitor, coordinate and manage all your retail locations from a single place, in real time, through a click on a map and on any mobile device. Enter Mapos, an effective management tool that makes field reporting quick and easy and helps companies achieve outstanding sales results.

05/2015 | Philips selects Mapos

Philips is investing in improving trackability with the help of Mapos.

Philips’ Trade Marketing Manager, Kati Partanen says Mapos has made everyday work easy with reports being in the same format, visual and all in the same place. Additionally tracking outsourced work of shelf stocking and product displaying has been smoother and we get a better picture of the actual field situation. “Report analysis and comparison as well as best practice sharing has been easier with Mapos. It has also provided us needed support to our campaign planning and implementation.”

Mapos’ CEO, Mika Heikkilä comments: “Despite the growth of online sales, there are no signs that all consumer commerce could or even would want to become virtual. People want to have the experience of shopping in a traditional store. This is usually where the visual side as well as experiences from other senses play an increasingly more important role. Displays are developing and becoming digital, but also the level of investment in displays is growing although there are significant differences in these levels: when others are marketing their products visibly and efficiently, others remain in the shadows, or are fighting for their place in the sun, in other words the choice is with the consumers.”
