CPGAudit
Ensuring excellence at retail
   

Your web site is one of the most important investments your company can make. Your web presence does more than just provide information, it sets expectations for an entire relationship. A professional design that meets the needs of your audience is the key to a successful site.

At Bay Star, we know more than just web technology and advanced graphic design - we know business. We will work with you to insure your site is consistent with your vision for your company and enhances your market brand.

In the Consumer Packaged Goods industry, it has long been traditional to rely on third party sales agents or brokers to distribute and manage products at the store level. A wise business practive is to audit that work from time-to-time to ensure that excellence at retail is being maintained.

Many companies have relied on paper-based audits to perform those audits, a labor intensive and slow method of monitoring the store shelf. CPGAudit changes that with a powerful online tool accessible from any Interent capable device.

Historical Societies

This site name and the others below are safely in the possession of Bay Star Media.

brewsterhistoricalsociety.org
easthamhistoricalsociety.org
provincetownhistoricalsociety.org
trurohistoricalsociety.org
wellfleethistoricalsociety.org

Bay Star Media is the premiere web site design and hosting company for Cape Cod and the Islands. Bay Star Media works with historical societies and other non-profits as well as corporate clients across the Cape and New England, providing services at a steep discount to non-profits. Our corporate work includes clients such as Sikorsky Aircraft, Gortons of Gloucester, Welch's and others.

We have an active and positive relationship with the Chatham Historical Society, the Harwich Historical Society, the Historical Society of Old Yarmouth and others. References happily provided.

Our ownership of this site name is in no way an attempt to extort money or business from your historical society. We purchased these names as a way of protecting them after an unpleasant experience we had while working with the Dennis Historical Society during which an unauthorized "squatter" bought their site name and used it for a parody site criticizing and insulting the society. I decided I could prevent such an action from happening again by preemptively registering these site names until such time as the Societies above wished to use them.

If you are a representative of one of the historical societies mentioned, please be assured that I will happily and at no cost transfer the ownership of this site name to your possession upon request. Just send an email to me at baystar at baystarmedia.net or call me at 508-208-7635.

Developed over six years ago, CPGAudit was the first smartphone application
designed from the ground up to be used for retail CPG audits.
Today this groundbreaking application continues to offer
the most tested and purpose-built auditing platform available.

Why audit electronically rather than paper?

Like many CPG manufacturers you probably rely on third-party brokers to distribute and manage the layout of your product at retail. While this is a proven effective distribution model, manufacturers are ultimately customers of the brokers and therefore entitled to monitor their service to ensure compliance with their desired distribution, placement and maintenance in stores. Like many other Consumer Packaged Goods manufacturers employing this distribution model, you probably already conduct periodic store-level audits, usually on a paper-based form system.

While audits are a good thing, traditional paper-based systems are plagued with issues that limit their usefulness and timeliness. Corrective actions need to be initiated immediately, not weeks later. And compiled audit histories need to be accessible for mega-audits across retailers and products over time.

Bay Star Media addresses that issue with the first smartphone-enabled SaaS (software as a service), cross-platform and dedicated retail audit system developed for the CPG industry, CPGAudit.

Fully cross platform no matter what technology brings 

CPGAudit was originally designed for use on Blackberrys. However, because it's power lies in it's web technologies, it will work on ALL Internet capable devices. From a simple feature-phone to the latest iPhone and Androids, from tablets to notebooks to desktops, from Macs to PCs. If you can reach the Internet, you can perform an audit.

Unmatched features and benefits

bullet Dramatically increases the number of field audits
bullet Automatically loads retailer SKU distribution, competitive info and objectives
bullet Scripts audits from start to finish

Give us a call!

 

We love to talk audits! Contact us and let's arrange a time for a no obligation web conference where we can walk you through a CPGAudit implementation and show you just how your business processes will benefit from our tool.

CPGAudit is revolutionizing the way your CPG field force ensures excellence at retail!
