Beyond that, you'll be able to devise workflows to better understand the data being collected to make sure there aren't any outliers or blindspots being missed.

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 By the time data was received, it was often outdated.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.
