This will mean a programmed call cycle of between 4 and 6 weeks where a simple operational review will take place with the customer to review product performance since the last review, ensure any matters that need attention are resolved immediately and during the visit, that a thorough stock check of product takes place and sold items are remerchandised, review the standard of the merchandising layout, clean and re-merchandise where necessary, completed photographs of the remerchandised area are sent through to TMP offices, and a final satisfaction sign off is completed by the customer.

A simple post visit report [CRM] will be completed with photography where necessary.  Regular liaison the TMP customer support team will take place to ensure that all matters identified by the merchandiser are dealt with effectively and immediately. Our aim is for the merchandising team to provide a ‘wow’ support service leading to improved performance of product, increased view as to the value of our brand and an excellent customer satisfaction experience.
