Retail Sector Challenges

Your Retail business needs to transform, evolve and revolutionise its working practices, as you rapidly try to adjust to the new normal.

The COVID-19 pandemic, Brexit and the continual movement of consumers to buy online, rather than at traditional brick and mortar stores, has disrupted the supply chain and exacerbated gaps in your current systems.

Mind the Gap – Retail Supply Chain Dashboards

Catalyst BI’s Retail Supply Chain Dashboards help category managers and buyers who want to ensure correct levels of stock and availability.

Our supply chain dashboards help to minimise any gaps in availability by enabling access to multiple data sets around stock by location, stores and product ranges. These dashboards proved to be vital during lockdown as they helped Catalyst BI customer, Wm Morrison Supermarkets plc to ‘Feed the Nation’.

Bringing people and data together The Catalyst BI Retail Team will help you to access all of your data and bring clarity and visibility to your decision-making. Challenging you to do more, quicker than ever before and delivering valuable insights to you at high speed.

Predictive Supplier Cash Flow Management

We provide supplier cash flow management solutions to enable Financial Planning & Analysis Managers (FP&A) to predict where suppliers may struggle to make payments. This allows the finance team and category managers to receive early warning of any issues. They can then proactively support business decisions and existing payment commitments, to prioritise stock and payment schedules.

Transforming HR Analytics

Our HR Analytics Dashboards support Store and Regional Managers and Operational Directors to manage talent and churn. By directly linking and sharing data with their recruitment teams, they can support the effective running of the business. As a direct result of this activity, Catalyst BI customer, Travis Perkins plc has saved over £1m in time and technology since 2018.

Coeus BI

Catalyst BI developed the analytics web portal – Coeus BI – to help retailers provide real-time data to external stakeholders. This includes suppliers and wholesale customers who want to target stock and marketing activities to relevant stores and regions.

By allowing these end users to interact and drive deeper insights with sales and stock data, sales dramatically increase across targeted product ranges. Suppliers and wholesale customers also know which product lines to manufacture, to ensure availability.

This solution was pivotal in increasing Wickes online market share and supported customers such as Akzo Nobel, SCA Wood UK Ltd and Gorilla Glue to gain visibility of retail habits as a supplier partner to Wickes. It has enabled Wickes to accelerate supply chain activity and achieved 137% sales uplift week-on-week.
