Accelerated Analytics launches new Customer Advisory Board initiative

COVID-19 Era Business Analysts Receive Enhanced POS & Inventory Toolset For Retail Data And Reporting


“Retail industry solution provider Accelerated Analytics continues build-out of cornerstone retail reporting tool with enhanced feature set for Dillard’s vendors.”


Accelerated Analytics announced today the continued expansion of their retail reporting and analytics services for Dillard’s vendors. The expansion includes the creation of a Customer Advisory Board (CAB), updates to the existing suite of reports, and the launch of eight new reports.

“I had the pleasure to host our Customer Advisory Board in meeting in April and it was great to receive outstanding feedback from our board members. The diversity of experience and their exception knowledge of Dillard’s is incredibly valuable in helping my team and I prioritize new product development.” said Chad Symens, President and Founder of Accelerated Analytics

Members on the Accelerated Analytics “Dillard’s CAB” include a cross section of Accelerated Analytics’ global customer brands which include fragrance, home goods, watches, and sunglasses brands. The Accelerated Analytics toolset for Dillard’s reporting now totals eighteen reports, making it “the most comprehensive toolset available in the market.” according to Mr. Symens.

“Our Spring release included eight new reports which are targeted to supporting specific high-value business analysis tasks including identifying and resolving low inventory, and tracking top and bottom-selling SKU’s. We’re quite excited about the impact our ever-growing toolset will have on sales and inventory streamlining for the global brands we help.”

In particular, Mr. Symens expects the new, enhanced inventory reports to be particularly valuable as brands deal with COVID-19 related store closures and openings. “In May, Dillard’s opened approximately 200 stores and according to Dillard’s quarterly report, consumers are already showing strong demand in the open stores. As more stores open, making sure inventory is in stock will be critical. Our new tools will make inventory monitoring and analysis as simply as a mouse click.”

Accelerated Analytics collects, analyzes and reports POS and EDI 852 data for international brands in the DIY / Home & Hardware, Beauty, Fashion and Consumer Products spaces.
