Preparing for the holidays.
Yea, yea, its only September, but you can never be too prepared to make sure you have a record holiday season!
Update your data service(s).
Your data service(s) should be the source of your master data and ensuring they are all sync’d and sending the same data set should be a priority. Not having all data sources sync’d is the single most common source of bad information. We’ve all mistakenly released incorrect product data and have been haunted by the resulting confusion for longer than we care to admit.
Best practice is to provide 45-60 days notice before the effective date, so start working on this now.

Now is a great time to start your MAP monitoring and enforcement as well. Stabilizing the market value of your products will create a strong environment for your sales teams to place product on shelves, sign up new customers and successfully implement sales programs just in time to capitalize on this selling season.
