Accent Group transforms its' reporting system and gets better insights of their sales with Power BI
About Accent Group
Australian-based retailer and distributor of performance and lifestyle footwear – Accent Group has over 500 stores across Australia and New Zealand and represents multiple famous brands such as The Athlete’s Foot, Hype DC, Platypus Shoes, Skechers and many others.
Being one of the leaders on the market, it was essential to have real time insights available and easily accessible to all team members. Particularly during peak trading period, ensuring robust data and reporting process can support the business stay on top of sales performance and customer service.
The main challenge for Accent Group was a lack of unified source of truth and an existence of several on-premise data sources. This created a number of challenges for the executive and management team to effectively manage and track sales.
There was an obvious need for a streamlined reporting solution which would allow consolidation of all scattered data into one and provide provision of relevant and interactive actionable reports in real-time.
Streamlined Reporting with the Agile Sales Insights
An effective solution for Accent Group was to implement Power BI dashboard for their real time reporting system.
Tim Greenstein (GM of Supply Chain & IT) contacted Agile Analytics to explore the possibility of implementing pre-built Sales Dashboards templates as accelerated solutions, that resulted in saving a significant amount of development time.
Agile Analytics team was able to consolidate sales data from 3 different ERP systems and build reports to provide comprehensive insights for an improved decision-making process.
This was a successful project that delivered accessible dashboards for key stakeholders nationally across Australia & NZ, at any time and on any devices. The near real-time dashboard gets refreshed every 15 minutes and it allows sales tracking that’s consistent to all retail stores and allow the executive team to track and see the sales as they happen.
The Agile Sales Insights accelerator package resulted in over 70% development time saving on top of a massive cost saving.
