REAL-TIME BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE
Retail creates huge volumes of data through all stages of the consumer purchase and engagement cycle. From research online, through to electronic point of sales (EPOS) systems, vast amounts of data needs to be stored, processed and analyzed to drive optimized business decision making. Kx for Retail can deliver all of this, enabling you to leverage all your data in one place. Kx for Retail can sit at any level of the technology stack, combining all key data sources and existing infrastructure to deliver the most efficient and flexible tools for ultra-high-speed processing of real-time streaming and historical data.
The consumers’ route to engagement or purchase is often not a straightforward one. Today few retailers are connecting the key data sources to fully understand the customer journey. Changes in consumer behavior, such as a move to search for products on mobile devices, is creating a wealth of data that now lets retailers track a shopper across multiple levels of the buying cycle and engage at different points of the customer journey in real time. Our connected solutions provide the capability for real-time tracking and automation through visual dashboards, alerts, predictive algorithms and machine learning journey optimization. Crucially, we implement the capability to empower in-house customer experience and insight functions to deliver world-class customer journey optimization.
