In a world of millions of SKU’s, thousands of concurrent promotions, a never-ending expansion of media choices and a sea of customers; how do you know what works? AOD is how.
We can gather that data from all your Point of Sale, on-shelf, web, loyalty, you-name-it systems and help you understand what’s working and what’s not working. We cannot make the decision for you, but we can definitely help you back-up your choices.
Our retail solution is designed to consolidate all your offline and online data into easy to read dashboards and charts. Once you see a trend worth investigating you can drill all the way down to the most granular level of detail.
- Dashboards and predefined reports based on true business intelligence expertise
- Ad hoc reporting and granular drilldown capabilities
- Pre-built integration with most of the major business systems
- Consolidation of data across all departments
- Easy, anytime access via all web browsers
- Cross-tabulation across all departmental data
- Drag and drop dashboard creation for on-the-fly view customizations
We think you should know it all. You should know who bought “what”, “when” and “how often.” You should know what promotion converted your marginal customers into profitable customers. Lifetime value of a customer? We can help you there too.
And it should be easy to do without any software to install, any IT guys to beg and without any more attitude from that analyst down the hall who thinks she’s smarter than you.
Dashboards with KPIs
Our fully configurable retail dashboards can hold an unlimited number of KPI's. We’ve already put a lot of thought into what you need to know. But in case we missed something, you can add, delete or modify KPI's without needing to call tech support. Our user interface is built to make dashboard maintenance a simple process.
Pre-built Data Mapping
Our software already understands the language your POS and marketing systems are speaking. They also can understand any language just about any other system is speaking.
You can link to call center, finance, logistics or any other data so that you can finally understand your retail operation from soup to nuts.
During construction of our AOD business intelligence system, we put an emphasis on making sure we could work with the most popular systems out there. So chances are we can pull it together for you very quickly.
Ad Hoc Reporting
You don’t always know what you are looking for. That’s why we created an ad hoc reporting tool that allows you to compare campaigns, buying patterns…virtually anything by drilling down and across your data. We make the discovery process simple and intuitive.
In addition, we are constantly improving our systems and interface. There’s not extra charge to your company. It just happens. All you need is a web browser and the ongoing improvements will just “appear” over time.
If you have multiple channels and a highly complex retailing operation, AOD can probably make your life much simpler
We can show data in our system as quickly as you can get it to us. There are no delays. You can see how a promotion is performing just as quickly as your POP system can send us the data. We’ll give you what you need to react to what’s happening right now.
AOD Retail was built expressly to deal with the challenges of multi-channel campaigns and the sales attribution channels that accompany it. Our team has cut it’s teeth on solving these problems for massive multi-channel Fortune 100 companies and the sophistication of our system is proof positive of that experience.
Your IT team is “green”
AOD lives and breathes business intelligence. Not only has our team been doing this for well over a decade for Fortune 500 companies, but we continue to enhance that experience every single day. Does anyone on your IT team have that kind of experience? If so, we’re hiring…
Data Security is Important
We work with leading software security firms to ensure the availability of the networks, intrusion detection and conduct forensic analysis of any attacks. All of our data systems reside in SAS 70 Type II facilities.
The Existing Business Intelligence system works well but it’s inflexible AOD can fill in the gaps in the system without running up the bills. Our monthly billing, low cost model will pay for itself quickly. We are complimentary to the existing systems.
Moving Quickly is of the Essence
We’ll have you up and running in 30 days or less. The world cannot stand still while you wait for IT to work their way around to your project. And frankly, IT hates it when you call them every day to ask them “can we done yet?”
Your Business is Seasonal
Most retail businesses are seasonal. This means ALL your systems are going to be taxed at the same time and that ALL your IT systems folks are going to be very busy. Why not outsource to experts who deal with massive amounts of data every single day?
Data Sources are Plentiful
One of the major challenges with retail analytics is ensuring data quality. If you cannot trust the data, then no one will use the system. We have pre-built connections for data from systems like Salesforce and Quickbooks…but also can work to integrate and clean data from your custom, legacy systems.
