Kurt Salmon utilizes analytics across virtually all of our retail services. We specifically help clients answer the question, “How can I use data—both internal and subscription—to make better decisions strategically as well as in our day-to-day execution?”

Improved decision support can mean using consumer, sales and planning data to make better planning and execution decisions. Alternatively, it can take the form of implementing a smart Business Intelligence (BI) toolset to help clients increase visibility to metrics and make better decisions with the data they already have—better decisions in key performance functions, such as:

  • Forecasting and Demand Planning
  • Pricing Optimization
  • Promotions and Markdown Management
  • Assortment Planning
  • Assortment Clustering and Localization
  • Inventory Profit Optimization
  • Supply Chain Optimization
  • Retail Real Estate Investment Optimization

We help clients understand how to leverage analytics to drive improved decisions and performance with several services:

  • Quick Scan—Utilize analytics to rapidly identify merchandising, pricing, inventory and supply chain improvement opportunities through improved decision support and business processes
  • Decision Support Tool Selection and Implementation—Incorporate better decision calculations into existing systems and select and implement software packages
  • Metrics Alignment—Design and implement measures that represent the key performance indicators (KPIs) for organizational leadership while at the same time rationalizing the existing set of reports into a concise set of usable dashboards
