Capcon helps your business raise performance on many fronts; numerous operational standards can be improved and profit margins maximised – through better stock management procedures, for instance. But our input can also help you actually increase sales revenue.

As a simple example of what can be achieved, we typically see a doubling of upsell rates upon introduction of a new reward scheme. Increasing revenue is about more than customer spend though. Nurturing repeat business is crucial too, so our techniques ensure that staff reward programmes don’t result in customers feeling pressured.
Using our sector expertise, knowledge of common challenges and best practice, and insights on your business, we deliver valuable management support. Together with our focused, results oriented training provision, this helps you get the best out of your teams.
For example, when relevant we conclude operational site visits with a meeting with all appropriate managers, sharing our findings and agreeing an action plan there and then. Following this visit, completion of the action plan by each team member is measured. Involving site teams in this way is a proven way of significantly and quickly raising performance.
