The bleeding bottom line – The Devil is In the Details

As demand patterns and price sensitivity became critical, this eCommerce retailer’s ability to liquidate piled-up stock started impacting their bottom line. The inability to anticipate demand cycles and price competitively with other retailers further aggravated the situation. The retailer needed a solution they could afford to deploy without significant capital investments but that could instantly provide results.

A deeper analysis of the way data was managed within the enterprise revealed multiple inconsistencies. Data was highly disaggregated across the enterprise with accuracy issues at both the reporting and analysis levels. Unifying the data ecosystem would provide greater clarity with better actionable intelligence. The dynamic demands of pricing meant that accurate insights needed to be available in real-time. The ability to dynamically update pricing in accordance with the changing market conditions was critical.
