Recently, AWG launched a new pricing application, giving the retailer visibility to net unit cost.

PRINT - AWG has partnered with Pangea to work with member retailers on retail print solutions. Pangea provides printed tags, shelf markers and ad signs as well as many other retailer needs. Retailers have the ability to go online to view, edit and custom-order their in-store signage. One additional benefit is the option to have a dedicated printer installed in store for everyday use. As part of the in-store solution, the printer and toner are provided at no cost. Stores pay for tag or sign inventory and a minimal click charge.

Netsurion offers a security guarantee through TrustVault against data breach.

The ad planner not only builds an ad or TPR (Temporary Price Reduction) program, but also handles the billing, pre-booking, in-store signage program, ad layout, ad calendar and data mining features. It began as a solution for the existing in-house ad groups and is now available for all members to utilize.
