KMRS has a national and in some instances, cross-border footprint, deploying a hierarchy of operations managers, field managers and roving and permanent in-store merchandisers into retail trading environments. Core activities: accounts management, merchandising and sales services are, in turn, coordinated by regional management structures. For the best Retail Marketing Services South Africa has to offer, look no further.
KMRS enters into service level agreements (SLA’s) with clients. This ensures response parameters, scopes of activity and performance targets are defined and established. In this way, clients can take comfort that their brands, products and services flow through the retail environment to exacting standards.
In exchange for our services, clients may elect to take advantage of a niche, specialist or localised service or may find it economical to opt for KMRS’s complete service option.
Clients may then remunerate KMRS either by way of a turnover percentage or by means of a monthly retainer.
In terms of retail merchandising South Africa offers no fairer or more effective alternative to KMRS.
