AMS provides extremely valuable in-store services to the companies we represent. Our primary goal is to drive more sales revenues for our customers’ products through the established retail channels they are sold through.
Our key business segments include:
AMS Retail Solutions has a management staff with more than 100 years of combined retail merchandising experience and has serviced Home Improvement, Big Box and local retailers nationwide for more than 13 years. AMS offers key advantages and core strengths that benefit vendors, retailers and customers including:
AMS Retail Solutions generates proven sales increases from 15-50% for our clients. Numerous test markets have been evaluated to authenticate these results on behalf of our customers and real-world results have been seen in multiple instances.
In one case study, major appliance sales grew from 13.7% U.S. market share to 17.7% market share at a major retailer for the 3.5-year period AMS serviced the department. This represents approximately $1.2 billion in additional annual sales. In addition, the close rate was 15% higher than competitors when AMS provided product knowledge training to sales associates.
Throughout AMS’s history, we have successfully started new divisions, increased ROI, added locations and improved technological capabilities for clients. On occasion, clients have allowed their contracts with AMS expire, only to re-hire the organization when sales dip. These same vendors then realize immediate and sustained sales increases with AMS’s return as a service provider.
In addition to increasing sales and revenue, AMS also has a proven track record of providing an average savings of 10-20% for clients utilizing Dedicated Vendor Teams. By providing not only field representation but also “back office” support, clients see savings in overhead and expenditures as well as improved efficiency and effectiveness.
Through these efforts, AMS has also grown as a company. In the last six years, AMS has experienced consistent year-over-year growth. Additionally, AMS continues to increase its dedicated vendor team activities, product demonstrations and project work through its ever-growing work force of both full-time and part-time employees. This increased capacity and greater reach only serves to benefit clients more as AMS moves into new product categories, retailers and markets.
