Richter Launches Its New Retail Platform


MONTREAL (QC), October 12, 2016 – Richter is proud to introduce its new retail benchmarking platform in collaboration with Dev-ID and the Conseil québécois du commerce de détail (CQCD). This platform allows stakeholders in the retail sector to monitor changes in sales recorded by Canadian retailers on a weekly basis.

For more than 12 years, a number of retail store chains have taken part in Richter’s weekly store sales  survey. The firm’s new benchmarking platform now provides quick and easy access to cumulative and weekly sales data for the sector. Retailers can now compare their own performance to that of their competitors and assess their activities based on reliable data.

Retailers that take part in the market study by providing their sales data in a confidential manner obtain considerable benefits. Their personalized account allows them to consult their historical data and cumulative survey results. Moreover, the retail sales platform provides exclusive access to a benchmarking of their results by North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code and by retail channel, thereby making it possible to evaluate success on a regular basis.

Obtain your free and confidential personalized account by clicking here.

The latest weekly sales survey results are also sent directly to subscribers of Richter publications and are always available on the platform.
