Datamining and scores calculations are performed in order to manage predictive analysis for sales, order management and stock optimization.
Bring geography to your dashboards & reports
Our Geo Business Intelligence solutions combine your business data with geography: it converts your information into visual representation. Enhanced decision making by understanding your activity better. Mapping out key performance indicators over an entire operational region enables you to capture regional activities at a quick glance. In addition, you will often identify patterns and trends in your business data which you wouldn't notice otherwise. Many of the correlations between market characteristics and sales performance happen along the geographical dimension. Displaying these variables on a map as a thematic view highlights these correlations naturally without any need for statistical analysis.
Give local context the credit it is due
From socio-economic census information to real-time market analysis and competitors information, businesses mostly rely on external sources of information to feed their performance analysis. Mapping out this data brings a comprehensive understanding of market trends, by putting together all the puzzle pieces on a single visual environment.
By superimposing key performance indicators on contextual information, you can then make a direct link between performance and market potential, thus creating a wealth of new information to analyze your business.
Add the geographical dimension to your data crunching
Using maps to track performance allows computation of a new range of indicators, such as market coverage, penetration rate around point of sales, and location-based market potential. These indicators can be computed by mapping out your business operations. They provide new insights on understanding customer acquisition & sales performance.
Thanks to mapping, all the geographical information stored in the company’s information systems becomes a fully-fledged source of knowledge and competitive advantage. Analysis, optimization, modelling and simulation are at the heart of geomarketing. Mapping and data combination allows a wide range of applications : site selection, network management, geomerchandising, prospecting, customer retention, managing operations on the field (sectoring, appointments, delivery) and performance analysis can all optimised.
The indispensable solution to understand, analyze and predict
By integrating data mining within the GIS kernel itself, Predictive Decision Maker for GIS enables you to develop the best possible understanding of your geographical data, improve the analysis of an activity and simulate future performance.
This module aims to consolidate and give operational meaning to the information available within company databases: customer addresses, the location of points of sale, competitive influence…
Predictive Decision Maker for GIS extracts the most relevant variables for explaining a phenomenon in order to build an explanatory and predictive model. The decision maker can then compare the theoretical values generated by the model with reality, focus on over-performance factors and highlight potential development reserves that have been insufficiently tapped.
The module enables homogeneous groups of places or territories (cantons, postal areas, communes, IRIS, points of sale, sales sectors…) to be created and the similarities between the members comprising these groups understood. The solution suggests a typology and displays it on the map within a few seconds. The typology thus created can have many operational uses (benchmark, local customisation of communication, geomerchandising...).
Taking account of spatial correlations is not always self-evident given the increasingly large volumes of data that need to be processed. Data mining, or the intelligent exploration of data, enables facts to be categorised and predicted. The power of data mining tools paired with the geographical engine, enable Predictive Decision maker to return accurate and reliable results in record time.
The user-friendliness of the Predictive Decision Maker interface enables a user, whether experienced or a novice, to navigate the results with ease. Importing data, referring to it, preparing it are all intuitive.
BI module for Retail
The technology used is depending of each client’s licensing strategy. Vauban can work as integrator to design reporting by suing distinct technologies as SAP BW, Oracle OBI ODI, Cognos, Microsoft BI Services, Qlikview etc. For optimizing the delivery and the cost, Vauban set up a predefined reporting and dashboard module for retailer and FMCG companies in Romania. Reports are mainly used for sales and marketing KPIs and finance management. Datamining and scores calculations are performed in order to manage predictive analysis for sales forecasting, order management and stock optimization. Some analysis can be performed for clients’ group, churn and loyalty card programs.
