Sales Insights

The amount of available data is growing every day and the ability to harness that data is becoming increasingly more challenging. Are you struggling to sift through all the data to find the opportunities and more importantly develop an actionable plan to present to your retailer? High Impact can help you navigate this with expertise in POS Data (retailer-specific, syndicated POS, IRI, Nielson, NPD, Spins) and Shopper (Syndicated Panel, Numerator, Loyalty Card).


Modular/Planogram Optimization & Recommendations

The space on shelves in stores is becoming increasingly valuable and harder to defend. High Impact uses all available data and our state-of-the-art technology and tools to help identify potential category growth opportunities. Similarly, we look at the much more complex endless shelf online and help optimize and prioritize. Some of the major areas we target include assortment gaps, expansion opportunities, clustering opportunities, operational efficiencies, new product launches, online opportunities, pre/post-mod performance, and analysis.



High Impact takes pride in creating a partnership and taking ownership in the success and growth of your business. With our vast experience in a wide range of areas, we can provide the guidance you need in a variety of ways that include JBP planning, line review preparation, growth opportunities, white space opportunities, and innovation.

“High Impact has been extremely collaborative when it comes to building dashboards in Pharos that help us quickly get insights into our performance at Walmart. A picture is worth a thousand words, and the dynamic visualization of our data has sped up our analysis and allowed us to quickly speak to and illustrate data, which allows us to truly move at the speed of business.”

Laura Rowland - B&G Foods

“Pharos by High Impact provides us the ability to view levels of detail that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to get. It has been instrumental in helping us grow through a data driven approach. The team at High Impact are key to our merchants and management.”

Eli Tobias - Fit For Life

“Pharos is amazing at my desk and on the go. Mostly the new dashboards have been most helpful on the go… It’s tough navigating files on an iPhone when you are trying to find out instocks quickly… being able to click the links and have the data available so quickly and easy to navigate is priceless!”

Andrew Mull - Flybar
