With ongoing economic uncertainties and rising inflation, Food, Drug, Mass, and Warehouse Clubs (FDMC) face increasing pressure to maximise profitability while delivering quality products and services to customers. In this context, discovering ways to increase approval rates or achieve savings within their payment strategies can significantly impact their bottom line. Through payment strategy optimisation, FDMC retailers can reduce costs and enhance operational efficiency.
The payment landscape presents a complex challenge for FDMC retailers due to varying ticket values, payment types, government-issued cards, third party delivery partnerships and many other variables. This complexity is compounded by the opacity of payments data and the lack of transparency across billions of transactions. It can be exceedingly difficult for you, as a merchant, to optimise alone.
CMSPI partners with many of the top grocers, mass, club, and drug stores worldwide. Our unique industry expertise, unparalleled data insights, and highly sophisticated analytical tools empower our specialists to identify inefficiencies, reduce costs, enhance customer checkout experiences, and help FDMC merchants boost profitability while remaining at the forefront of the industry.
