Business Intelligence for Retail and Wholesale

The retail sector uses Business Intelligence solutions to create a market expansion strategy, predict changing customer needs and optimise product sales and inventory. Comarch Business Intelligence supports retail and distribution in decision making aimed at growing your business and building a unique competitive advantage in a challenging retail market.

Retail Analytics

Sales analysis is one of the most important reporting elements in each company. Retail analytics support all main aspects of your business – marketing, merchandising, operations, supply chain, finance etc. All sales data is centralised in one place from which you can measure your sales network performance, stock rotation, retail-related KPI’s, margins and marketing campaigns.

By monitoring sales patterns in different distribution channels and in different dimensions (products, services, regions, time periods, etc.) you can generate predictive reports forecasting sales in order to optimise the supply chain and focus efficiently on an individual customer. As a result, you will increase store profitability and improve your overall growth strategy.
