Efficient data management services

Connecting data, systems, processes and people.

Engineered to solve and evolve

Our platform is engineered to tackle your complex direct delivery data management challenges. We manage all retailer and supplier data – inputs, throughputs and endpoints. These data sets include product, price (cost and retail), promotion, range, supplies, sales, returns, shrink, credits, charges and invoices. All data sets are received, processed, redistributed (as required), monitored and ultimately displayed via intelligent data visualisations, giving complete visibility of store and supplier compliance and performance.

Store activity is captured on the rascal app which sits on every device in store and has been designed to standardise and streamline the process of receiving direct delivered products across multiple categories. The app is configurable to manage direct deliveries regardless of the agreed model for receiving goods each category has in place.  Receiving options on the app include Line-level scanning, Tote/parcel-level scanning, Good Faith Receiving (GFR), GFR auditing, Sale or Return (SOR), EPoS Based Returns (EBR), Sales Based Trading (SBT), Receive All.

To benefit from our data management solutions there is no need to rip out your existing technology. We offer a self-contained solution that receives data from multiple retailer and supplier sources and compiles it all together in the desired format ready for integration into retail systems.
