Connect, Clean & Harmonize Store-Level POS Feeds from 400+ Retailers in Near Real-Time

The Retail Velocity DSR is a centralized enterprise application that quickly connects, cleans and harmonizes large volumes of complex, disparate external data sources from Retailer store-level POS. Retail Velocity can capture and manage external data at the granular level by Retailer, DC, store and item in near real-time.

Integrate Internal & External Data for an Extended 360° View of Your Supply Chain

Retail Velocity integrates Retailer, Distributor, ERP and 3rd party (syndicated, demographic, weather, etc) data and lets clients unlock the full value for end-to-end insights, using our retail analytics reporting tools. Clients can generate high-level or detailed item- and store-level reports to drive insights, including:

  • Retail Market Share Analysis by harmonizing syndicated data and retail POS feeds from 400+ Retailers and tracking their own and competitor products down to item
  • Forecast and Sales Quota Tracking by comparing actual retail POS data against sales quotas, production forecasts and annual sales plans by Retailer
  • Price Point Analytics to determine which prices are driving more business through category analysis
  • Store-Specific Assortments & Planograms Analysis by breaking down store clusters by geography, demographics, weather or even allegiance to a pro or college team
  • Sell-Thru Reporting by providing a factory-to-shelf view that allows for the accurate management of store inventories to limit exposure to markdowns and returns
  • Promotional Profit & Loss Analysis by generating P&Ls by Retailer and total market to enable understanding of costs and profitability of total sales, as well as promotions and special deals
  • Ladder Plan or Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP) by monitoring products in transit, orders, shipments and retail forecasts
  • Targeted Service Visits and Effectiveness Analysis to streamline service visits by merchandisers, allowing them to target the stores that need assistance and pass over those that do not
  • Out-of-Stock & Phantom Inventory Analysis of sales and stocking levels of their products in each store to determine if inventory positions are wrong in a Retailer’s system
  • Shrink Analysis by tracking inventories and sales of their product to Retailers to determine margins of error and calculate the level of “shrink” due to theft or damaged goods
  • Category Management by loading planograms by store and calculated productivity indicators to determine which products generate the most sales per foot, how they are trending and the impact of planogram sizes
  • CPFR (Collaborative, Planning, Forecasting & Replenishment) by downloading product pricing, sales, replenishment and forecasting info into the DSR on a daily basis to identify causes of forecast, replenishment, inventory and sales issues
