What Kind of Retail Companies Use ThoughtSpot Analytics?

The retail industry is a competitive space by nature. Margins are slim. Businesses are consistently vying to acquire and retain customers. Measuring and optimizing performance is imperative, no matter which specific niche your company occupies.

Retail analytics empower employees to make data-driven decisions based on company data across multiple sources. These insights, in turn, fuel better outcomes for the organization.

How Retail Analytics Can Help a Store

Every department within a retail business stands to benefit from access to speedier, more accessible retail analytics: merchandising, sales, marketing, store operations, finance, etc.

Search-driven analytics from ThoughtSpot gives users instant insight into anything from product performance to inventory levels; from staffing practices to customer behavior.

Anyone with an ad hoc question—plus permission to access relevant data—can type in their query. ThoughtSpot guides users with its auto-suggest feature. The software then produces an answer based on stored data from multiple sources. Voila.

The answer also comes back in the form of an interactive data visualization, allowing employees to interpret at a glance and share their findings—no additional fiddling with charts or reports required. Charts and entire dashboards are embeddable across company portals, too.
