Retailer Network Bureau Veritas

Ensure the quality of your retailer network

For companies with a large retailer network, compliance with processes and brand-relevant company guidelines is of enormous relevance. A uniform appearance and consistent service quality have a positive effect on the shopping experience and customer satisfaction. Customers should experience consistently high quality in all areas at every point of sale.

Especially for companies with many locations, both national and international, it is often difficult to check compliance with company guidelines at all sales locations. Branding, specified sales processes, service quality, range of services, quality of goods and products, additional services and security may differ at different locations and may not always comply with corporate guidelines.
