JMC's passion for excellence, creative perspective and analytic approach give our retail and vendor partners the sales solutions they want with the logistical support they need. 


CATEGORY VISION

We combine executive-level leadership with a team of sales, marketing and logistics professionals providing cross-functional assistance to both suppliers and retailers. We map out and lead our vendor partners through the sell-in process and actively support programs from inception through completion. 

There are always obstacles in selling to big box retailers that could derail your business or botch even the best laid plans. That's where JMC comes in to help navigate your way. We understand how to work with Target and other large retailers.

REPORTING AND TRACKING

In retail, you need to know more than if you are just winning in the aisle - you need to know how you are winning and why. JMC's utilization of an Executive Dashboard reporting system gives our clients a weekly status for everything that's going on with their product, along with recommendations for increasing sales or reducing inventory investment. 

Whether reporting ADHOC or weekly, we have an option for each partner we work with.

 

SOURCING AND LOGISTICS

JMC's sourcing expertise, operational processes and systems support are relied on by key retailers, including Target. If requested, JMC offers knowledge and background in global logistics, properly sourcing and seamless integration with a retailer's operations to ensure that information flows between retailer and vendor in a clear, quick and collaborative fashion. 

How do you move a company forward in retail? By constantly adding value into the product and through the supply chain. JMC's laser focus on value and ability to guide resources efficiently and effectively ensure that you deliver on the retailer's top priorities.

account management

Through detailed modeling, along with proprietary reporting tools such as an IFG, analysis of inventory levels, production speed, logistics and product demand, JMC is able to take the lead in identifying potential supply chain issues and to solve ordering and shipping problems when opportunities or challenges arise (and they always do). 

The keys to success in retail are to stay passionate and to stay paranoid. By constantly thinking ahead, analyzing and anticipating, JMC helps suppliers ensure that the right amount of the right product gets to the right place at the right time.
