Mission Critical:
Performance @ Retail

Central is focused on client value and we have developed a proprietary Performance @ Retail model – P@R – to ensure measurable results for our clients.  This unique P@R methodology informs product design in a way that increases point-of-sale purchases and brand loyalty, and also offers measurable cost-saving and margin efficiencies for our clients.
