The challenge

As owners of an extensive distribution network, AFG found themselves stuck with the task of manually tracking a multitude of sellers. Staff members were having to dedicate huge parts of their day to finding and documenting partner information, product prices and third-party domains. All this work left AFG with no time to act upon their findings.

The Solution

Using Red Points Seller Tracking meant AFG no longer had to do the heavy lifting in monitoring their online distribution. Red Points’ platform now tracks AFG’s entire online seller network, allowing them to monitor the activity of every online distributor and retailer selling products from their brand. This includes not only the authorized partners but totally unknown ones, too.

Red Points’ flexible pricing structure gave AFG a bespoke solution, allowing them to monitor every single online channel their products is sold at and obtaining all the relevant information they need to have full visibility over their online sales.

The Result

AFG staff now have time to take action on the data collected, as everything they need to know to inform strategic decisions is presented in monthly reports and intelligible graphs. 

Their distributors and retailers are adhering to the MAP policy, and AFG’s relationship with partners is better than ever. With no price erosion from sellers competing within their network, the AFG name is protected, and their reputation is no longer under the same threat.
