It’s Monday morning and your retailers are asking this: “Did you see the sales for [SKU] at [store] last week? What do you recommend for stock levels going forward?” What do you do?
Can you answer on the spot? Or are you paying an entire team to produce the sales reporting from your national retail accounts, only for the reports to not be ready until late in the week?
Ten years ago, the sales support team at Kidde received hard copies of sales reports from their retailers and utilized the information the best they could to get the details they needed. Other POS data reporting companies were unable meet their needs. The Accelerated Analytics team stepped up, providing a user-friendly tool that offered Kidde’s team the flexibility to view their data the way they wanted to. Kidde has been a customer since 2008.
Inventory management can be a struggle for vendors; gathering raw data, then formatting and analyzing it is arduous, often marked by an obvious delay in response time. Omnichannel retail requires retailers and vendors to have instant, accurate and store-SKU specific sight into their inventory. Shoppers have high expectation that they can source, find, buy and return products any way and anywhere they want. Knowing where the products are and where they are not available is critical.
Vendors need real-time insights. Accelerated Analytics eases your inventory headaches by automating your reports, integrating data from retail partners & distributors to provide you with the most up-to-date organized, consumable data possible.
Using our popular Inventory On-Hand Exceptions report in conjunction with the Accelerated Analytics’ unique Sales Velocity Analysis reports, your sales, planners and store operations teams can manage your data to pinpoint the areas that need your attention in time to take action to improve product performance.
Instantly see, by SKU and store, out-of-stocks and where stock levels and sales activity are creating low or high weeks of supply. Work with your merchant with real-time inventory facts to create orders that keep inventory optimized.
This, in turn, will increase your sell-through.
Accelerated Analytics® provides an automated, multi-layered inventory aggregation with streamlined reporting to help strengthen store success, save time and eliminate unnecessary manual tasks.
