Checking Out Audit Efficiency: How a Big Box Retailer Achieved a 5% Increase in Performance
A hypermarket superstore in the Northwestern United States opened its doors over 100 years ago, and has since become a local favorite. In 2020, the superstore adopted GoSpotCheck by FORM’s retail execution software to improve its operational efficiency and boost overall store performance. By utilizing the solution’s mobile task management, photo reporting, and real-time insights, the retailer achieved remarkable results, gaining clear visibility of store performance, enabling data-driven decision-making, and experiencing a significant increase in its overall company performance score.
The large retailer, catering to a diverse range of customers, had a substantial presence with numerous stores spread across different districts. Teams would travel to each location to ensure consistent health and safety standards, administer food and department sanitation checks, and customer experience evaluations. With such a vast operation, conducting these audits was complex and time-consuming. The larger company faced challenges in identifying performance gaps and providing targeted support to individual stores that required nurturing.

To overcome these challenges and streamline their retail execution process across locations, the retailer decided to implement GoSpotCheck by FORM’s retail execution software.
