RVCF is pleased to announce that Tim Carey with Trend Results will be joining us for the RVCF Spring Conference, May 7-10th in Arlington, VA. Trend Results specializes in supplier training and consulting for Walmart and Sam's Club suppliers. Their team has over 30 years combined experience working on both sides of the Walmart table.
RVCF is devoting an entire afternoon to Retail Link training, covering topics well beyond what might be considered standard. Tim will take a deep dive into advanced topics like:
Market Basket Analysis – How are Walmart's customers interacting with your products within the stores? Are they loyal to your brand?
Store of the Community – Identify who is buying your products as well as the potential to open up new markets based on the community demographic information provided by Retail Link.
Historical Trends – Discover how to create simple reports that can easily compare historic performance metrics to each other, helping quantify POS sales.
Corporate POS Forecast – This simple document will help with demand planning, by helping anticipate Walmart's consumer needs.
Store Within A Store (SWAS) – This simple exception-based interface offers "point-and-click" insight into performance exceptions such as store out of stocks, DC outs, forecast inaccuracies and more.
Supply Chain Reliability and PO Tracking – Walmart's Supply Chain Reliability (SCR) program will be introduced. Included in this session, a "PO Tracker" will be developed to help identify root cause for MABD and fill rate compliance issues.
And much, much, more…
For those with Retail Link access, feel free to bring your laptop and follow along with Tim's presentation. Digital documentation access will also be provided the entire afternoon!
In addition to these extensive training sessions, RVCF will have another program focused on planning, forecasting and replenishment; hitting Walmart's tight ship windows; and avoiding deductions. Finally, we'll have a peer group round table discussion on Walmart.
These sessions have been included in the Spring Conference agenda in response to supplier members' requests and we're excited to accommodate. As such, be sure to secure your spot by registering for the Spring Conference now. Hurry! Early bird rates expire Wednesday, February 15th (must register and pay on or before this date to be eligible for the savings). To review the agenda-at-a-glance, click here.
