The interest in mobility solutions for in-store backend operations has created a buzz among retailers. Designed to empower executives with improved reporting capabilities, BI and data warehousing application provider QuantiSense recently announced the latest release of its software, which includes dashboards designed for the Apple iPad.
The solution is designed to offer retailers greater store insight, enhancements to popular “plays” to drive action, and seasonal information to improve retail decision-making.
With iPad-compatible dashboards, retail executives can interact with data and efficiently highlight problem areas and solutions from any location. The combination of QuantiSense and the iPad provides quick access to critical information including at-a-glance summaries displaying top departmental KPIs, sales trend graphs, and top and bottom products across departments.
QuantiSense’s new Playbooks empower retailers with a set of role-specific “plays” that guide them to make better decisions. The solution offers allocators, buyers and planners the metrics and exception reporting required to make timely business decisions.
The company also announced enhancements to QuantiSense 4.7.2, including the ability to diminish potential lost sales by prompting users to find hot-sellers in orders, highlight items with a high rate of return, signal potential vendor quality problems and prompt users to mark down certain products to make room for new merchandise.
The latest release also includes a new season code attribute to strengthen the QuantiSense Retail Learning Infrastructure (RLI), designed to allow users to tell if an item is a basic product that should always be in stock, or if it is tied to a particular season.
