When Stores Run Out of DSD Products, Businesses Lose Money

When shelves are empty nobody is making money. Inefficient communication systems amongst retailers, distributors, and manufacturers create an out-of-stock problem.


Retail stores struggle with being understaffed and keeping up with out-of-stocks.

Manufacturers & Distributors

Manufacturers and distributors struggle with visibility into stores, knowing when they need more product.

  • 50% of shoppers have left a store because a product they wanted was out-of-stock
  • 1/3 of shoppers will leave if 2 items are out-of-stock
  • 2/3 of shoppers will leave if 3 items are out-of-stock

“Before Tactiq’s communication software, inventory management was manual, time-consuming, and costing us money in lost sales. Switching to Tactiq’s Pipeline technology has saved us significant amounts of time because our employees can now quickly scan out-of-stocks and automatically notify the DSD vendor without ever needing to spend time looking up which vendor delivers each product. Our same store DSD sales started growing in just 30 days. I can’t recommend this necessary technology enough!”
