Welcome to

  the Hive

 service network.

 

  Retail services are programs

executed to create value for a vendor or retailer.

Key services 

 provided by the Hive:

CONCIERGE SERVICES

 

Employing a concierge to represent your brand in-store enables your products to be brought directly to active shoppers, delivering suggestions, advice and brand validation. Best-in-class brand ambassadorship drives awareness and incents purchase.

 

 

STORE AUDITS

 

Ensuring product is in stock and on shelves usually falls within a store employee's responsibility, however the mass retail landscape is vast, presenting challenges to diligent oversight of your brand on shelf.

 

The Hive connects the right service vendor to a given brand or product, delivering greater frequency of inventory checks and oversight of store inventories.

 

  • Confirm product is on shelf

  • Using exclusive back room access, replenish openings in store

  • Identify supply issues if the store is out of stock

  • Reactive supply and replenishment process

 

 

QUALITY CONTROL

 

Most service providers currently generate reports that provide details on compliance and completion rates, however the measurement of effectiveness of these services is unique to the Hive.

 

By confirming job content and completion, diving deeper into the details and ensuring that the best possible service provider is connected to your brand, the Hive helps drive greater ROI in service.

 

 

TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM

 

The Hive's exclusive technology platform empowers vendors and retailers alike with core insights and reporting tools that provide real-time visuals and tracking: ultimately, total transparency.
