Unfortunately, the term 'data warehousing' has the
reputation of be 'big' and 'costly' to implement. That
could not be further from the truth. If done correctly,
data warehousing is not only affordable but could very
well be the single most important competitive advantage
for companies today. If you are not doing it, you are
behind the times.
Data integration and data warehousing is fast becoming
the lastest buzz in the Consumer Goods & Retail
industries. Competition is intense and expectations
from mass retailers are at an all time high. Retailers
are demanding that suppliers understand store level
demand (POS data) and accurately forecast store level
consumption. The attitude is, "if you can't get
the job done, somebody else will". The objective
is to manage your inventory and shipments better than
your competition so that you get favorable shelf space
and product placement, leading to greater sales and
issue with POS data is the volume of data coming from
retailers, inconsistent data formats and the need to
combine it with internal data such as shipments and
forecast data. The graph to the right depicts shipments
and consumption on the same chart, called "Ship-Share".
With POSmart, one can easily understand sell-through
trends and quickly take action adjusting demand planning
The "secret sauce" is POSmart's built in automation
of data validation and cleansing processes, while integrating
and consolidating multi- retailer
POS and 3rd party data such as AC Nielsen and IRI. Right
out-of-the-box POSmart contains what you need to get
demand level analysis up and running in a few weeks.
In fact, the ROI for POSmart is so great that it can
pay for itself in months, not years.
