Whitepaper: 3 Keys to Analytics that Work
The whirling mass of data in the digital age has made the old adage “like drinking from a fire hose” seem trivial. Even our unromantic wholesale distribution industry, rarely thought of as a leader in digitization, is caught in the data vortex. The data challenge has given rise to an urgent interest in the use of analytics, the information resulting from systematic study of data. Read this whitepaper to learn how to focus on the right info that increases margins.
To Manage a Modern Supply Chain, You Need:
Cost to Serve Reports
You can improve overall profitability by identifying the cost to serve of all your customers. You may choose to “fire” the unprofitable customers and provide special services to your best customers once you know which accounts fall into each category.
Customer Service Reports
By providing insight into delivery patterns, you can identify problems with distribution centers or partners that may be adversely affecting your customer relationships. Backorders, returns and partials can affect your margin as well as your customer relationships.
Inventory Turns Reports
Your inventory turns ratio shows how effectively you are using your inventory investment, and can help you identify possible issues that drag down profitability. Compare your inventory turns to your most-effective competitors to determine whether you need to take action to improve your processes.
Freight and logistics charges are often overlooked sources of margin erosion, with the transportation reports insight you will be able to identify problems and resolve issues that cost you money.
Warehouse Productivity Reports
Warehousing and material handling can be a source of competitive differentiation when they are effective and efficient.
Marketing Effectiveness Reports
One of the hardest things to measure is marketing effectiveness, yet you shouldn’t spend money blindly hoping for results. Measure campaigns and gain the insight you need to know which campaigns aren’t working and which are bringing in good high quality leads at a reasonable cost per lead.
Financial Performance Reports
Have the necessary insight any time you want. Monitor performance by customers, products, warehouses, sales person as well as traditional financial reports such as accounts receivable aging.
Advanced Business Analytics™ gives you the high level reporting needed to track the overall success of your operation, with the ability to drill down to specifics and make adjustments.
