Explore how the rascal platform solves your data management challenges

Retail problem: laboured data processes

  • Multiple sources of product & pricing data from all parties =
    inaccuracy.
  • Spreadsheets and emails used to update information =
    manual errors.
  • Margin rules are not centrally managed =
    unprotected margins.
  • Lack of a central monitoring system =
    unapproved products sold.
  • Multiple incompatible systems =
    misaligned data.

rascal solution: Master Data Management

  • Cloud-based shared data point for all parties =
    accuracy.
  • Simplified and automated business processes =
    fewer errors.
  • Automated cost and retail price management =
    protected margins.
  • Single system consistency =
    unauthorised products identified.
  • Integrates easily and feeds current systems =
    fully integrated data.

Retail problem: inefficient goods received processes

  • Heavy reliance on paper and manual processes =
    labour intensive.
  • Disparate systems and information =
    delivery discrepancies.
  • Lack of controls =
    incorrect products accepted and sold.
  • Lack of coherent processes and no strong audit trail =
    data gaps.

rascal solution: Digital Data Capture App

  • Removing manual and paper-based processes =
    labour efficient.
  • Discrepancies identified at the point of delivery =
    verified deliveries.
  • Data accuracy and tighter stock control =
    improved stock information.
  • Robust digital data during reconciliation of invoices =
    accurate quantity matching.

Retail problem: inaccurate goods payment processes

  • Manual checks to uncover and trace discrepancies =
    labour intensive.
  • Invoices matched only at a total invoice value =
    restricted matching.
  • Error rate assumed to avoid time consuming reconciliation =
    money loss.
  • Internal systems are not integrated =
    more invoice errors.

rascal solution: Invoice Reconciliation & Error Recovery

  • Simplified store and AP processes =
    reduced matching and labour time.
  • System automation =
    invoices matched at a granular level.
  • Invoice discrepancies are quickly identified =
    accurate reconciliation.
  • Integrated systems sync with Master Data Management =
    fewer invoice errors.

All supported by powerful analytics & simple functionality

  • Consolidate and compare data, identify trends and view cost variances over time.

Saves time. Cleans data.

Improves control.

And that’s the bottom line.

Testimonials

“Since the introduction of rascal’s weekly shrink reporting, we have been able to identify a number of causes of shrink and take action to reduce. We are able to look at the data on both a macro and micro level to correct issues identified at store-level as well as supplier-level, which has helped to realise approximately £2 million reduction in shrink year-on-year. rascal’s insight reporting system is invaluable. It permits instant access to vital data with a number of metrics which allows me to plan my approach, working with suppliers to get maximum profitability.”
