Retail Audit & compliance services in South Africa

MegaWorxx offers comprehensive retail compliance as well as in-store promotion and activation audits

Activation audits

Going live with a brand activation event is extremely exciting for everyone involved. The big day arrives, your marketing collateral and POS displays are looking amazing, professional ambassadors are out and about, and you can’t wait to see how your potential customers respond.

In the midst of all this excitement, though, it’s just as important to make sure you’re gathering as much useful feedback and data from this unique opportunity as possible. And when you’re doing a brand activation on a large scale or across multiple locations, you can’t be everywhere at once to make sure all is running according to plan.

That’s where MegaWorxx’s internal audit services shine. Throughout the event, we’ll make sure you have instant access to live data and reporting, asset tracking, and that all of your requirements are being complied with.

Retail compliance services

MegaWorxx also assists with retail compliance audits for chain stores and retail franchises. We’ll provide you with hard data on the health of each of your locations, with a particular focus on the metrics which will be of most use to you.

Aside from sales and general data, we can also offer insights into the effectiveness of marketing displays and staff, and ensure your brand is compliant with any industry regulations.

Retail audits, also called store audits or shop audits, take a deep dive into how each of your locations are performing, and what the underlying causes of issues might be.

Instead of relying only on reports from your own managers and supervisors, we provide a helpful outside perspective that you can turn into better performance across all your outlets.

We can also send in mystery shoppers to paint a picture of the standard experience with your brand, from the customer’s point of view. Retail audits are particularly important when your industry has strict food or health & safety regulations that need to be complied with.

Compliance regulation for retail

Before the audit commences, we work with you to draw up solid retail audit objectives, which cover all the retail compliance standards required for your industry.

The audit may be conducted as a one-off exercise to evaluate all your locations, or become a regular event so you can gather information on how well new measures have been implemented and make ongoing progress.

The retail audit standards we help you lay out can also be very useful for regional and national managers to use when conducting their own site evaluations. Whether you have ten locations or thousands, MegaWorxx can assist with retail compliance audits that provide meaningful, actionable data to grow your brand and profits.
