The retail and wholesale distribution industries have never been more fragmented—or fractured—than they are today. From discount warehouse clubs to upscale specialty retail stores, corner convenience chains to mega e-commerce sites, buyers are better informed, less loyal, and highly cautious about discretionary spending.

Businesses are striving to balance product, price and service sensitivities, while protecting margins; to ensure inventory availability while maintaining reduced carrying costs; and to deliver favorable multi-channel experiences, while streamlining daily operations at all levels of the enterprise. Now, more than ever, business intelligence (BI) information must be leveraged in new ways to gain competitive advantage and renew stability in these uncertain times.

Using the QlikView business intelligence (BI) solution, leading retail & wholesale distribution companies worldwide can:

  • Enable increased productivity by channel, location, and associate through the ability to analyze and react to performance patterns and trends in real time
  • Align the right mix of products and services by channel and location to retain the most profitable customer relationships
  • Reduce costs and increase effectiveness of the supply chain by aligning order, production, and delivery schedules to consumer demand
  • Align product offerings by business unit and market to customer demand
