A huge advantage of the rascal system is the speed at which product checks can be carried out.
Once per week the retailer scans all fixtures, one copy of each title in-store. Once scanned the PDA informs the store colleague of issues that are due for recall, not part of the designated range or at the end of promotion. This leads to a large reduction in late returns. Having quick and easy product checks leads to increased store compliance and overall range discipline. The impact is an enhanced shopper experience where tidy fixtures contain no out of date or non-ranged product.
