Dear Valued Partner,
My team and I wish you all the best for 2017- a year of good health, success in business ventures and personal endeavors, as well as enough time for rest and reflection.
2017 much like 2016 is expected to be tough economically, for both consumers and businesses, with a GDP growth of less than 1% predicted for South Africa. International market pressures and the local and international political situation is relatively unstable which means we need to all pull up our sleeves and work harder.
Still, like we have in the past, we are committed to driving innovative solutions to build your brands and deliver strong results in store and OnShelf. This is the year we will go above and beyond. 2017 is about building better relationships, working together for stronger results. As your retail support partner, we will dig even deeper to achieve sales growth. Our team is ready, from executive to merchie – we will deliver your marketing plans and objectives – we will go above and beyond. Our power partners are here to support you across multi-functional platforms.
The OnShelf team is continually learning and growing – this ensures the latest knowledge is applied, the latest retail insights are known, the latest customer data is built into what we do. Strategizing and using our collective knowledge and insights, we will support you to reinvent plans as the year throws varied challenges to us all. Our green team is your representative in over 4000 stores across South Africa. Our executive team is your co-pilot should you need it.
We thank you for your continued support and are geared up to delivering a strong 2017.
