Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.
In the not-too-distant past, a retailer simply had store-level sales data, from which virtually all planning decisions were made. Today, retailers—from grocery to fashion—are bombarded with data that, with the right tools, can help them gain actionable insight into shoppers’ behavior across channels. In this white paper Oracle Retail explains how retailers can accurately measure consumer interest in specific merchandise and apply that knowledge from one channel to the next, thoroughly understand the implications of promotions on specific customers and customer segments, price on product performance, plan channel-specific assortments accordingly, and coordinate the supply chain processes to ensure execution of the cross channel plan.
