The sharing of experiences and information is a pillar for the companies of Agorà Network. For this reason, several groups are organized, with the participation of counterparts from the member companies, sometimes helped by a tutor, whose chief task is to report to the Board of Directors opportunities of convergence or common activities.
The Sales Team, for example, is composed by the Sales Directors of the member companies, meets in the stores of the partners or of competitors to conceive ideas for commercial innovation, assesses organisational methods, shares technical and economic information on equipment, facilities, materials, etc. The Communication and Marketing Committee evaluates the effectiveness of the loyalty and promotional activities of the Stores, verifies the possibility of agreements, if needed organises joint actions to support sales; supports the marketing structure of the headquarters in communication choices related to Retailer Brands. The Human Resources Committee meets to discuss the individual staff policies of the companies and issues of common interest. The IT Committee manages a Project Room where the projects of technological innovation and computerisation of the activities developed by the companies are documented; it converges on common solutions and suppliers where possible (e.g. EDI, data warehousing software, pricing optimisation, etc.).
