Overview

How can Master Data Management help my business?

As both retailers and suppliers work hard on differentiating themselves, there is a growing focus on customer-centric strategies; whether through an accurate assortment or improved space management and visual merchandising. These strategies require big data that is more granular and reflects consumer demand. It’s about the ability to optimize the use of that data across your trading floor, from procurement to shelf, to maximize operational efficiencies while producing highly-targeted store schematics.

Plan & manage each step of your customer centric journey

Considering your customer means being more specific, being more specific means more granular data, more granular data leads to increased workflow and greater velocity. A customer centric strategy means building accurate customer clusters, understanding the breadth, depth and distribution of assortment right through the whole trading and merchandising process to the point where schematics land at store and we demand operational efficiency.
