Ankeny, IA (January 17, 2022) -
Coreware, a leading point of sale platform in the shooting sports industry has partnered with NASGW to expand SCOPE CLX, a retail sales data platform designed to analyze consumer buying trends.
Coreware’s support of SCOPE CLX will help NASGW advance its goal to grow the shooting sports industry by collecting, standardizing and analyzing data. The addition of Coreware will add anonymous sales from over 300 stores, making SCOPE CLX the largest sample of the independent FFL market.
“Adding Coreware is a game-changer for us,” said NASGW President Kenyon Gleason. “They are such a major player in our industry and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them to expand data analytics in the shooting sports industry.”
Coreware FFLs clients will benefit from a direct integration of SCOPE CLX which will offer insight into weekly sales by region, category, caliber and more from anonymous stores across the country. The data will help dealers understand sales trends, track popular products, make assortment decisions and manage overall inventory levels. Coreware integration is expected by spring of 2022.
“We are extremely excited about our partnership with NASGW," said Ezra Weinstein, CEO of Coreware. "Our mission is to help small businesses survive and thrive. By integrating into the SCOPE CLX platform, our customers will have access to better tools and data to help them make better buying decisions. The data offered by the SCOPE CLX platform will become an integral part of helping our customers increase sales, cut costs, and increase profits.”
Weinstein will also contribute more than two decades of expertise by serving on the SCOPE Advisory Board. Tasked with defining data standards and industry best practices, this board of manufacturers, distributors, service providers and industry leaders is an integral part of SCOPE’s success.
“This partnership is significant not only in the value it will offer the industry, but in the spirit and trust in which it was developed,” said Easton Kuboushek, NASGW Director of Data Programs. “Coreware recognizes the value to their FFL clients but more importantly, the impact their contribution will make in informing and growing our industry.”
Coreware joins other point of sale partners including Celerant, AIM, and Orchid POS in contributing anonymous sales data to NASGW for the benefit of the industry. SCOPE CLX will support every business in the supply chain – from manufacturers to FFLs – by informing product development, production and optimizing supply performance.
