The festive period is upon us!
And with it, the time for gifting, eating and sampling.
To maximise your exposure and gain new customers, sampling plays a key role in introducing your products. However, we often find that our clients on their return from their stalls find a discrepancy in their stock records.
This may be because as the footfall increases, the amount of sampling you may be carrying out is more than what you expected. It could also be that this is your first Christmas Market and you had not factored in recording the samples at all.
As an inventory management and food traceability platform, NotaZone aims to provide you with the complete trace of your goods in, goods out and everything in between. This includes recording sampling in a simple but effective way.
If it is an e-commerce sample request such as from your website or Instagram shop, we recommend creating a customer record named samples and then creating orders on that customer.
However, if you are giving the samples away in person at Christmas Markets, Farmers Markets etc, it is easier to record the number of samples given out each day and carry out a consumption event for these tagging them with #Samples.
If you do not have a stock control platform in place as you gear up for the busy period, it isn’t too late! Give yourself the gift that keeps giving- easy-to-use and effective inventory management and food traceability platform, NotaZone. Get in touch today!
