SRI®(Nationwide Retail Store Panel Survey)
Retail store sales data we collect from approximately 4,000 stores nationwide including supermarkets, convenience stores, home centers/discount stores, drug stores, and specialty stores. As this captures the actual sales situation over the counter, you can use it for brand marketing and/or in-store promotions.
Since this is sales data by SKU, you can find the volume for each item, i.e. how many of them were sold, when, at what price, and in which business category/store.
You can find out how the product competes with others on the shelf in terms of delivery, line-up, and price as well as net sales volume.
If you use i-Store DB® which is a separate service, you can find the actual line-up situation and best-selling products for different types of stores by linking the various store attribute data.
