AcuitySpark for Grocers


By not understanding and analyzing data as a core decision making tool, some companies are severely limiting their ability to grow. Many omni-channel retail organizations also make the mistake of employing analytics in a piecemeal fashion, leading to inconsistent and inefficient results. Furthermore, organizations whose analytics capabilities lack forecasting and other forward-looking features will also find themselves at a major disadvantage. Today, every successful retail / grocers business requires well-planned technology that delivers cross-channel, predictive analytics.
