SOLYS helps you act as a team, providing everyone with the exact information they need to make collaborative, timely, strategic decisions that meet the needs of your vendors and your retailers.
You will find almost any metric you want in SOLYS because we are continuously adding new retailer metrics and proprietary metrics that you will need to keep up with emerging retail trends. This enables users to share information with their retail partners that the retailers may not have themselves.
Leverage this robust collection of metrics in SOLYS pre-built reports that have been created based on the best practices of our customers. Reports are designed in a format that can be customized to the needs of any manufacturer. Or, if you don’t find a pre-built report that fits your needs, you can create an original report from the ground up, giving you total control of any report content.
