Key Advise Modules

Advise comes packed with a variety of different modules to help you and your teams with a wide range of ways to interrogate and understand your data. Each module has a collection of dashboards that have been created by data scientists to get the most out of your data. Each of these modules is described below.

Market & Category
Discover the trends, changes, and momentum across the market and the category(s) that you are active in. Drill down to retailers, segments, sub-segments, and micro-segments to identify areas of growth or decline. Understand the interrelationship between metrics to understand what is driving change in the market.
Store Performance
Utilise EPOS per store information to drill down to individual stores and measure their performance against each retailers plannogram. Pinpoint which SKU’s and ranges work in which stores and store types. Identify the availability of each SKU in each store and make use of our automatic lost sales opportunity calculation to prioritise the remediation activities for your field sales team.
