Faced with a radically changing retail industry, IMRG wanted to provide its members with more comprehensive, responsive, and rapidly accessible output to provide better business insights
Working collaboratively, the partners developed a new platform that retailers could access quickly and easily in order to visualise relevant business data. To maintain the digital dashboard, IMRG members submit data directly to the organisation’s website every week. This tracks 80 sales and performance metrics across 25 product sectors and numerous sub-sectors, aggregating the data into accessible, interactive graphics that provide summary overviews and in-depth insight into a wide range of criteria arranged by sector.
- Improved data-driven insights for retailers
- Greater preparedness for disruptions
- Renewed engagement with member businesses
Together, IMRG and Capgemini see a future for retailers based on increasingly refined data. Building upon the success of the dashboard, the partners can now work on expanding the organisation’s predictive and forecasting capacity to provide these additional analytics through the front-end portal. Now and in the future, IMRG has dedicated itself to the expansion of data-driven insight within the retail industry.
