Assessment Tool: Store Audit Center
Concerned about too much tobacco advertising near your schools? Burgeoning sales of single-package, flavored cigarillos? Steep price discounts or too much menthol?
Our Store Audit Center is a data collection and management tool. It helps public health practitioners collect empirical evidence of tobacco industry (or food industry) marketing and promotions in their local stores. This is a first step towards building awareness of the problem, and educating for change.
Use the Store Audit Center to mobilize a team, upload your list of stores, build a survey form from our item menu, launch an assessment campaign and get a report. Data can be collected via printed paper audit form or via smart phone or other web-enabled mobile device such as iPad®.
To use the Store Audit Center, simply navigate your Internet browser to the URL Audit.CounterTobacco.Org and login with the user ID and password provided by the Counter Tools team. The Store Audit Center is Software as a Service (SaaS); Counter Tools provides its’ clients login IDs and passwords to gain access to the software.
Counter Tools also provides enhanced technical assistance to its clients who are conducting store assessments using the Store Audit Center. For example, in-person visits from members of the Counter Tools team to present store assessment findings, discuss strategic implications, retrain users on the assessment tool and survey form as needed, and address other challenges.
