"This union of one of the world's largest retail workforces and the industry's most innovative and advanced market solution to-date means CPG brands will see a benefit via improved retail selling and merchandising execution," said Justin Behar CEO of Quri. "Acosta's depth of industry knowledge and added resources will benefit both retailers and shoppers alike. Improved merchandising leads to better customer experiences and will help increase loyalty and satisfaction long-term." Brands supported by Acosta will find themselves benefitting at the headquarter-level and store-level through more data-driven support of key merchandising initiatives both on and off shelf. Additionally, brands will see improved levels of merchandising execution once programs are sold due to more efficient direction to Acosta's field labor workers in-store, using Quri data and insights. "As competition at the shelf continues to intensify for consumer-packaged goods, brands need every possible advantage to put their best face forward in store," said Ned Peverley, EVP, Retail Strategy & Operations of Acosta. "Our role is to leverage key insights to help drive greater sales and market share for consumer goods manufacturers, and with this new Quri partnership, Acosta's team can spend less time auditing and more time selling and providing exceptional service to retailers on behalf of brands." Quri and Acosta worked together during the July 4th promotional period to improve display compliance on several seasonal brands.  As part of this effort, Quri supplied data within a day of the ad breaks as to whether key programs that were planned and authorized were actually executed.  Acosta then used the information to prioritize their sales routes and make corrections in-store.  Through this program, Quri and Acosta unlocked a dynamic merchandising capability that drives incremental sales. We expect future partnership solutions to expand to new categories that benefit from continuous and real-time in-store merchandising insights, in particular, fast moving goods or categories that rely on multiple distribution points and more complex merchandising plans.

You know that using your smartphone costs money, but did you know it can help you make money? This week, I earned a little dough on the side using an iPhone and two free apps: EasyShift and Gigwalk. The idea behind the apps work is simple: Companies hire you to do some pretty simple work using your iPhone. You submit the work using these apps and you get paid via your PayPal account. I focused my testing on similar jobs from...

The Spark of Genius Series highlights a unique feature of startups and is made possible by Microsoft BizSpark. If you would like to have your startup considered for inclusion, please see the details here. Quick Pitch: Get paid to perform merchandise and display checks at stores. Brands spend hundreds of billions of dollars on trade marketing every year, much of it on in-store displays and promotions. But keeping track of those investments — verifying, for instance, that a display is set up correctly, or shoppers are being properly prompted to redeem in-store coupons — is difficult and costly. Enter Quri, a crowdsourced intelligence system for brands and retailers that's launching nationwide Wednesday. Through Quri's iPhone app, Easyshift, companies can anonymously employ users to check up on stores where their merchandise is for sale. A brand like L'Oreal, for instance, could offer someone $7 and 20 points to snap photos of a hair aisle display at a store that was repeatedly reporting poor sales. The company could ask the user to record how competitor brands were stocked and displayed, and snap photos of any special promotions or call-outs that might drive shoppers to one brand of dye over another. L'Oreal could do all of this without revealing its identity, although a savvy user may be able to figure it out. Each task is called a "shift," and it rewards both dollars and points. Dollars can be redeemed the same day via PayPal. Points are used in a leaderboard system to encourage competition and can open up new and perhaps more lucrative kinds of shifts, co-founder and co-CEO John Mecklenburg tells Mashable. The points system is a way of identifying the most reliable and efficient users. Quri also offers a dashboard for clients that enables them make sense of all the user-gathered data. A brand could drill down and identify trends by locality and retailer. A brand might discover that a certain product is frequently out of stock in one region, or that coupons tend to be redeemed at one retail chain over another, and use this data to identify problems and potential solutions. The San Francisco-based startup raised $4.2 million in Series A funding from Catamount Ventures and Simon Equity Partners in December 2011. Quri now operates in the top 50 metropolitan markets nationwide. The Spark of Genius Series highlights a unique feature of startups and is made possible by Microsoft BizSpark, a startup program that gives you three-year access to the latest Microsoft development tools, as well as connecting you to a nationwide network of investors and incubators. There are no upfront costs, so if your business is privately owned, less than three years old, and generates less than U.S.$1 million in annual revenue, you can sign up today.

PALOS VERDES, Calif.--Focus. EasyShift has it. This new service, launching today at the D10 conference from Quri, is a crowdsource labor system, most reminiscent of GigWalk, but with a uniquely narrow purpose: it helps consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies make sure their in-store displays and programs are running they way they should. Users who want to make extra money can accept "shifts" to check that, for example, a baby food display is set up right. The app might ask the user to photograph the product and its display surroundings in a store, count the number of items displayed, and enter the price marked. For this, the user might earn from $2 to perhaps $20; funds are sent to users' PayPal accounts daily. James Joaquin of Catamount Ventures, one of the backers of Quri, walked me through the app and the business. "Customers are the brands," he was clear to say. CPG companies pay Quri for the privilege of being able to pay consumers to do compliance checking for in-store "trade spend" programs, and to check on other retail-related factors. These customers can get a real-time dashboard of how retailers are displaying products, if they're using marketing materials correctly, and what price-points they're using. Joaquin told me that one customer found that a retail program had only 30 percent compliance. The EasyShift app helped them identify which stores were not using the retail materials correctly -- which the CPG company had paid the store chain to use. But the resolution was good for everyone, Joaquin said. "The client was happy; they got a 100 percent refund and ran the program again. And the retailer was happy, too. They can use this product to help train or keep up with their employees. Ultimately, everyone just wants sell-through." The mobile app is location-aware. It will highlight tasks for users that are nearby. But it's not yet ambient: It won't run in the background and buzz the user when he or she is near a shift. That may come in the future. EasyShift's closest competitor is GigWalk, which also has a focus on business-to-consumer shift work and spot checks. Other companies in this space include TaskRabbit and Zaarly, but they have large numbers of consumer-to-consumer tasks and don't offer the same hirer's dashbaord that EasyShift does.
