Retail Analytics Software
Retail analytics software help online and offline retailers make operational and financial decisions based on the insights identified in their data.
Decisions such as stock levels, markdowns are critical and complex for retailers with their high number of SKUs, diverse geographic/digital footprint and historically low margins.
These decisions are even more important today with what news media is calling the retail apocalypse. Not taking into account changing customer preferences has been the end of numerous retail brands, making these decisions even more important.
To access relevant data, retail analytics software needs to work with retail POS software and other operations software used by retailers.
To be categorized as retail analytics software, a product must be:
- Built for and marketed to retail companies
- Able to access data from other common retail systems
- Auto-generate insights or allow the user to visualize and analyze the data so user can generate insights
