Home and hardware vendors count on Accelerated Analytics to provide them with the expert point-of-sale reporting solution they need to empower their sales, marketing and store operations teams. These teams use our product- and store-level analytics to exceed sales goals, increase orders to fully stock their shelves, test plan-o-gram efficiencies, and prepare for line reviews.
The beauty category faces unique challenges related to data collection and analysis, and having detailed data that you can leverage to drive success in your business is critical. Our expertise, based on years of working with beauty retailers like Dillard’s, Macy’s, Ulta, Sephora and Nordstrom, has enabled us to develop an invaluable solution to help your account executives, planners and sales reps track sales-to-goal, store display marketing, promotional effectiveness and inventory, empowering them to make faster and better-informed decisions that drive results.
Fashion vendors have the unique challenge of managing a very large number of UPCs. Accelerated Analytics has extensive experience working with fashion vendors to overcome related challenges. We know how to work with all of your retailers, no matter how they provide that data. Plus, we take the data a step further by integrating your item catalog, shipping data, markdown information and other key files for a comprehensive reporting solution.
Consumer Packaged Goods
Accelerated Analytics has extensive experience working with CPG vendors to address and overcome challenges related to large numbers of SKUs, high sales volume, and inventory management. We have the knowledge and experience to work with all of your retailers like The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart, Sephora, Ulta and others. Your ability to track displays, plan-o-grams and customer promotions is critical, and we take the data a step further by integrating your item catalog, shipping data, markdown information and other key files for a comprehensive reporting solution.
When adding the challenges of selling in multiple retailers, with data coming through in multiple formats, such as EDI, Excel, and portal files, the data doesn’t always match and pulling it all together each week can be very frustrating and time consuming – forget having time to actually act on what the data is telling you! Add the need to track products with foreign language versions and cross reference retailer-specific SKUs, and you have an overwhelming amount of data to manage! That’s where we come in with the tools you need to win at retail.

Imagine it’s first thing Monday morning and your team needs the latest sales data.You log in to the Accelerated Analytics portal, and in under 20 minutes you’re able to pull the reports and give everyone exactly what they need. You’ve e-mailed a scorecard of top-line business results across all of your retailers to the executives; you’ve sent SKU/store level reports of units and dollar sales, sell thru, and percent-to-plan data to the field sales teams; and your planners have already accessed the exception reports on their smart devices so they can address store-level sales and out-of-stocks with their buyers. You also gave them forecast and recommended order reports to make their day even easier. Boom!
You’re about to meet with a buyer from a key account.Just before your meeting, you log in to the Accelerated Analytics portal to access historical data. Based on past sales, you’re able to easily predict inventory needs and suggest order quantities to the buyer. You have a promotion coming up, and you’re ready to monitor price points and the success of your promotion in this retailer versus their competitors.
You’re about to visit your stores.You have all of the exception data you need – where you’re out of stock, where stock isn’t moving (better check for the box in a back room!) and more – and with Accelerated Analytics now you can take that information with you into the stores on your iPad. Instead of showing up at a store and walking the floor to see how your business is doing, or waiting for the manager to provide you with sales numbers, you have the information in hand and can address each store’s individual issues. Technology rocks!
It’s Monday morning and your company just launched the Accelerated Analytics tool last week.You arrive at work, and unlike every previous Monday, you don’t have to spend hours collecting data from your retailers, calling retailers to find late data, or logging into portals to manually pull information. Are you in an alternate dimension? Nope. Your reporting solution with Accelerated Analytics is simply in production! The data that your team relies on has already been collected and harmonized by Accelerated Analytics, and the reports have been automatically distributed to your end users. Your voicemail isn’t full of messages from the sales and field teams asking where their reports are, because they already have them, and can focus on hitting their sales goals and filling inventory gaps. If there’s something else they need, they now have the tools to research the information themselves. Across your organization, everyone is looking at the same reports and is on the same page. You’ve eliminated a major drain on your resources, and the ROI is already being felt throughout the company. You grab a cup of coffee and start working on a new technology initiative that’s been on the back-burner for months. It’s going to be a productive week!
