Challenge

Inefficient inventory results

A large North American retailer was having difficulty consistently providing its customers with the right products in the right stores. They were missing sales in some stores while carrying too much inventory in others. They lacked the time and ability to use their vast amounts of product, customer, and transaction data to improve store performance.

Solution

Algo’s Balanced Scoreboard

Algo’s “Balanced Scorecard” dashboards track POS, on hand, in stock %, weeks of supply, and returns in real time. Algo used its Balanced Scoreboard to effectively identify several store clusters. It then set targets for each cluster against each scoreboard attribute. By monitoring clusters and matching shipments, Algo ensured that all supply chain goals were met.

    Challenge

    Unoptimized promotions

    Algo analyzed historical data for promo performance, past sales, returns, stock-outs, and items in stock, and then recommended multiple item-store combinations to drive sales for future promotions.
