Field sales and marketing experts, McCurrach, and a European leader in data powered merchandising, BeMyEye, today formed a partnership to revolutionise field marketing for brands and retailers. This innovative partnership brings together McCurrach’s highly skilled on-demand workforce within their Wave division, together with the speed, granularity and cost-effectiveness of BeMyEye’s crowd technology and on-demand data gatherers in one disruptive unified service.
The big challenge faced by the industry is how to eliminate wasted visits to stores that don’t require intervention from a field marketing specialist combined with delivering dynamic coverage with skilled resource when the opportunity exists to sell more. This is the challenge that McCurrach and BeMyEye set out to solve with data-driven field marketing. BeMyEye’s speed, technology and crowd of 400,000 on-demand data gatherers provide insights to direct McCurrach’s skilled, on demand team where and when they are most needed, to maximise their impact on sales. This ‘uberisation’ of field marketing promises more efficient and impactful sales activities thanks to the power of data.
On the partnership, McCurrach CEO Angus Maciver commented, “through our partnership with BeMyEye we can now offer something that no other player in the field sales market can. We’re excited to be at the forefront of on-demand skilled resourcing; the combination of BeMyEye’s technology and data service with our skilled on-demand resource from our Wave division will help reduce costs and sell more for brands at the point of purchase. The future of field sales will be driven by data and flexibility, and this partnership with BeMyEye enables us to make the future of field sales a reality today.”
Luca Pagano, CEO of BeMyEye, comments, “using crowdsourced data to maximise the impact professional merchandising services can have on sell-out potential is a win-win for everyone. It was an easy decision for BeMyEye to partner with McCurrach, one of the most well respected field marketing companies in the world. It is about the established and the disruptor joining forces to change the rules of the game and bring about unprecedented benefits to an ever more demanding industry.”
