Retail Analytics & Data Visualisation – Intelligent Retail

Javelin Group provides advanced analytics and BI solutions to our retail, brand and property clients right across the enterprise.

In retail, our ‘analytics everywhere’ approach includes:

  • Location planning & property: e.g. catchment analysis, sales forecasting, impact analysis, property management dashboards, store clustering, ‘car park’ report, automated ‘Valuation Office’ reporting
  • Customer insight & marketing: e.g. customer profiling and segmentation, single customer view, local marketing hot-spotting, post campaign ROI analysis, market penetration analysis, social media analytics, RFM analytics, ‘Next best action’ planning
  • Operations: e.g. advanced drivetime analytics to inform logistics, optimise salesforce boundaries, optimise field force activities, POS analysis, inventory planning, call routing, warehouse applications, KPI dashboards
  • Buying & merchandising: Detailed flow replenishment reporting, range/category/SKU-level analytics, stock availability reporting, space optimisation, price optimisation, markdown decision support, local merchandising
  • Finance & HR: e.g. automated weekly/monthly KPI reports, store sales and profit modelling, M&A analysis, rankings reports, staff performance reports, single view of the truth
  • eCommerce & multi-channel: e.g. merge online and offline performance KPIs, single customer view, blend Google Analytics with external data, AB testing, marketing campaign attribution, web content personalisation, product recommendations, KPI dashboards

To meet these requirements, we are experts in deploying a range of market leading BI software tools such as Alteryx and Tableau which take advanced data analytics right into line of business.

Through our colleagues at Accenture Digital we also access the Accenture Insights Platform (AIP) which provides a cloud-based ‘Analytics-as-a-Service’ solution which drives transformational business outcomes at speed and scale through the flexible use of a range of pre-configured technologies.

Javelin Group’s understanding of retail locations and consumers is informed by a range of specialist datasets. We combine our proprietary datasets with relevant external market and demographic data to gain a 360 degree perspective of the retail marketplace to inform our project work. All the datasets are available to license as standalone products or delivered within one of our recommended business intelligence software tools.
