UTC RETAIL Visions - Dynamic Retail Analytics
Being able to have a clear view of results, ranging from overall business performance to that of a single SKU, can give retailers a jump on the competition. Dynamic retail analytics aids in real-time decision support and allows a retailer to be proactive on stock turns, next season buy-ins, and even gauge the success of in-store promotions.
With Visions, users have direct access to “actionable” data within Merchant, either locally or remotely. This allows the user to quickly study a wide variety of retail metrics, including IMU, MMU, GMROI, Sell Through, Weeks of Stock, and Inventory Turns. The data can also be presented in a broad range of formats, such as dashboards, multi-dimensional cubes, lists, reports and spreadsheets. Visions allows the user to change views and sorts without involving IT resources. Additionally, data can be easily exported for use outside the system, or converted in to PDF format for instant email distribution.
Visions has been designed to be easy to use and allows the user to:
• Access and save views of information in the format meaningful to them,
• Drill down from high-level views or cubes to the transactional detail,
• Create and distribute charts and graphs that provide the information team members and management can quickly comprehend and act on,
• See only the information that is appropriate to each individual's role.
UTC RETAIL’s Visions is the tool that allows retailers to take full advantage of the information available in their enterprise system. With a more timely decision making process, retailers are better able to effectively identify and exploit any trends or competitive advantages.
