JOH Masterclass: Implementing GSC as Your Software Source of Truth - Presentation

As a food broker who conducts over 1900 retail audits per week, the ability to capture and share product information in real-time can make or break partnerships. Before GoSpotCheck, JOH relied on nightly, manual syncs of the data their reps collected in the field. By the time data was received, it was often outdated. Additionally, their reps were burning out from the tedious and unintuitive auditing process. Learn about how making the switch to GSC changed the game. Using GoSpotCheck, JOH's ability to easily capture and share item-level insights with partners in real-time has expanded the value they provide for their brands, while improving their field execution team's experience.
