Getting vital daily information into store manager’s hands. It was taking too much time to prepare the information. Without the information, the store managers risked allowing small problems to fester. The area has many c-store options. Naturally, the family running the business felt it was important to grow to support the community. Unfortunately, many other stores were not experiencing growth.

Finally, store managers posted it each day to share results with everyone.
