How Long Should You Run Your Pilot Programs?
When we talk with a retailer who is considering an Alert Tech pilot program, one of the questions that inevitably comes up is, “What is the recommended length of the program?”
Obviously, you want to wrap up the pilot program in a reasonable amount of time, and there needs to be an endpoint so that it’s clear when to make a decision on whether to move forward with a broader implementation. On the other hand, if you don’t give your pilot program enough time to run, how will you get data you can trust?
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to the right length for a pilot, but there is a number that will work for your brand.
