ArrestSalesKillers.org, a retail-industry resource for information on lost sales and revenue-driving opportunities, launched Tuesday.
The new Web site is dedicated to raising awareness of "Sales Killers" and providing retailers the tools needed to minimize lost sales due to walk-away traffic. ArrestSalesKillers.org is sponsored by retail automation vendor Escalate Retail.
ArrestSalesKillers.org identifies and addresses retailers' "most wanted" culprits responsible for as much as $275 billion a year in lost sales, including:
* Out of stocks (AKA: The hit and run shopper)
* Shopping cart abandonment (AKA: The serial offender)
* Mobile competitive shopping (AKA: Armed and dangerous)
* Time-starved shoppers (AKA: The time bandit)
