True Use Case Example of Store Profiling in Action

We asked a process change specialist of a popular grocery chain retailer with over 180 stores in the northeast, to provide us with some of the ways they’re benefitting from a store profile solution. Here’s what they said:

  • Fresh department accruals can now be assigned based on “department sales” instead of “current use of total store sales.”
  • Delivery schedules are now optimized to meet each retail location’s specific needs from a capacity standpoint.
  • Store supplies can now be ordered for equipment and fixtures specific to each retail location.
  • Retail management teams better understand the attributes within their areas of responsibility.
  • Facilities associates use the database to determine when equipment replacements are needed.
  • Corporate office management teams can:
    • Easily determine store classifications and contact information
    • Ensure asset protection by using details from the database to determine camera placement
    • Keep their attributes current and up to date through a secure, gatekeeper approval process, enabling better understanding of their impact(s) to retail locations.

AccuStore’s centralized cloud-based database gives everyone on your teams anytime, anywhere access to the accurate store-specific info needed to make smarter, data-driven decisions. Contact us to schedule a demo today.

Our Brand Story

GSP started as a printing company in1978. We found our niche supplying in-store signage for convenience stores when retailers guessed quantities they needed. This led to overage, waste and expense. To solve this, we developed software to guarantee on-time delivery of “the right size sign, to the right store, every time.”

In 2014, we started AccuStore with a dedicated team. As software helped drive our growth, we realized that new printing and fulfillment sites near customers could drive business and improve sustainability. We acquired companies that fit GSP’s technical excellence and superior customer service models.

First was Great Big Pictures in Madison, WI in 2015. They lead the field in large format printing and visual merchandising for iconic fashion retailers. Their standards for customer service include award-winning sustainability programs, and expertise to bolster retail environments services.

In 2020, GSP acquired Custom Color in Lenexa, KS. The company supplies printed graphics to leading retailers. Custom Color’s stellar quality in fabric printing also aligns with GSP’s values.
