Retail store auditing reinvented

Meet Specto. Specto is a flexible and visual app for store auditing, packed with productivity boosting features. Specto not only streamlines the audit process, it will identify opportunities to improve retail store quality aligned with the retailer's standards.

Streamline the audit process

Get the job done on the spot, eliminating after-hours paperwork and reporting

Embed the audit process as a part of an overall plan for continuous improvement

Share valuable insights with shop managers, the head office and other stakeholders

Take a virtual tour through the store

 

With Specto regional retail managers take a walk in their customers' shoes, exploring a store through the eyes of the customer. The app guides the regional manager through the store and pinpoints the items that need to be rated. Photos, text and voice can be added at each level, highlighting opportunities for improvement.

Finding meaning in visual content

 

We integrated the Watson Visual Recognition API service in our Specto app. This intelligent tool understands the contents of images. It uses deep learning algorithms to analyse images for objects, scenes and other content. As a user, you can even train Watson to increase the quality of Watson Visual Recognition.

Cases of in-store use include: product condition optimisation, ensuring that products are consistently displayed to maximize sales, shelving and floor cleanliness as well as checking planogram compliance.

Move from observation to action

 

Specto provides insight into the store performance and assists regional managers in understanding where a particular store is failing in terms of operational excellence. It allows the head office to implement a proactive approach to areas identified as needing improvement. For that purpose, Specto automatically converts remarks from previous audit reports into action plans and actions points. Action reports and reminders provide effective tools to ensure timely follow-up.
