• Webinar: 3 Hidden ROIs When Considering a BI & CRM Platform

    Submitted on: Wed, 09.02.2020 07:36pm - Kelsey Hamon

    Analytics without action is pointless – pretty reports that you don’t do anything with are just that, pretty reports. Not measuring and planning your processes doesn’t bring you any value. Bringing the two together so your decisions are informed by analytics is the key to ROI.

    If the past few months have taught anything, it’s that one of the most important assets to your distribution business is your relationship with your customers. The first part of the year was business as usual, then a pandemic set in, and may have compromised some relationships.

  • Deliver Analytics with Purpose, Not Mounds of Data

    Submitted on: Thu, 06.22.2017 01:42am - admin

    I am married to an amazing ER nurse. In her world, a patient’s symptoms indicate which tests to run for a diagnosis. The nurses and doctors don’t approach the patient like this is the first time they’ve seen a fever and rash from a bug bite, they simply follow a protocol. The book has already been written. The algorithm has been designed. Decades of research into data and billions of dollars have been invested to say, “if this, then that”.
     
    Why can we not apply the same logic to our distribution customers and their “symptoms?” They buy too much of this and not enough of that. They place too many orders. They have too many returns. They have us quote 1000 jobs to every 1 that is accepted.

  • Analytics delivers pick and zone restructure insights in 10 minutes

    I just came across this post by Andrew Weith of ASW Global Consulting on the TUG Forum and had to share it:
     
    In working with a client earlier this week, I suggested their storage of products was 'backwards', meaning fast moving product was furthest from the docks and slow moving was closest. It was an observation with merit but we couldn't possibly invest in flipping the building on it's head based on what I 'think' is occurring.
     

  • Benefits of a Top Down Data Analytics Approach

    Submitted on: Thu, 04.20.2017 06:36pm - Annie Eissler

    As software continues to become more and more complex, we find that about 80% of its users tend to utilize about 20% of the software’s functionality. And this is fine, as long as it’s the right 20 percent. To make sure that happens with their analytics software, companies need to take a top-down approach centered on aligning analytics with the company’s overall strategic planning. This, in turn, ensures that your company gets 100% of the value out of the solution without worrying about what percentage of its functionality is actually being put to use.

  • How to Build a Metric Management Culture at Your Distribution Business

    Submitted on: Mon, 01.30.2017 06:17pm - Annie Eissler

    When management guru Peter Drucker famously said, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure,” he was saying that without clearly established success metrics, you can’t quantify progress, adjust processes, or produce desired outcomes. Put simply, in the absence of clear objectives, companies are stuck in a constant state of guessing—and, hoping that they’re doing the right thing to win their end games.
