With an ever growing middle class, rapid urbanization and proliferation of internet, the past few years have witnessed the Indian retail industry moving along an upward growth trajectory. Keeping up with global trends, organized retailing has become a business necessity in today’s highly demanding market environment. The trend has transcended the metro cities and has reached tier 2 and 3 cities, making it tougher for retailers to maintain quality and uniformity across geographies. Pro-TEAM Solutions, a Bangalore based management consulting organization has built its capabilities in rendering audit services to retails across the country, irrespective of the location.

“Usually showrooms and shops are spread widely across tier 1 & 2 cities and we are required to cover all the audits irrespective of the location. This calls for our resources to be available locally at these cities,” explains Jayaram DR, Founder & CEO, Pro-TEAM. To counter the same, the company has built a geographically diverse local team and uses them for audits that happen around their base locations. With employees located at more
than 25 cities across the country, Pro-TEAM has penetrated through deep pockets PAN India. Founded in 2014, the 550 people strong organization possesses the capability to perform any audit that requires up to 50-100 members per day.
