DATA SOLUTIONS

Put our data solutions to work for your business

Data is the backbone of in-store and online retail experiences. You may have data that you need better organized, codified, or normalized. Or you may be looking for a data source to help you improve the customer experience throughout the retail supply chain — from brand to distributor to retailer, including partners along the way, such as third-party merchandisers, industry associations, and technology vendors.

In the ultra-competitive retail arena, ensuring you have accurate, reliable, current, and in some cases, logical data can make the difference of getting a sale, building loyalty, and/or strengthening your brand integrity.

Some companies look for the most inexpensive option but end up getting data that is inconsistent, incomplete, outdated, and inaccurate. Imagine getting data like this from multiple sources and having to normalize it for your needs. The manpower and time needed would quickly negate any savings thought to be realized from the “less expensive” route that was taken. Not to mention the customer service nightmares that could occur due to the use of faulty data in ordering or payment systems or online.
