Unlock business potential

Data warehousing and predictive analytics have, in many ways, become the future of business development. Empowered to translate stores of business data into intelligible language, able to interpret packaged interactive reporting systems, your company’s internal processes can be streamlined like never before.

Giving your business’ stakeholders access to a wellspring of information provides them with a valuable resource: information that illuminates which business processes should be improved or scrapped based on performance. In this way, unnecessary resource expenditures can be curbed. Your business is likely to already have the data – you just need someone to package it for you.

Answer critical business questions

As a modern business owner, you’re probably no stranger to the flood of data that your business generates – even on a normal working day. Whether it is information relating to the peak sales times of shoes, which foods sells well right before noon at your shop in Rosebank or a log of complex buyer behaviours and patterns, the pace at which data is created and stored is staggering. The dilemma most businesses who have collected these vast amounts of data face, however, is that they often lack the tools to utilise it to its full potential.

Retail: build with data

Improvement constitutes progression. That which has already been achieved does not become superfluous – it is a foundation. It is necessary. And this notion permeates all areas of change. Escalators never became a replacement for stairs and paperbacks have not faded into insignificance in the wake of the e-book.  

Just so, the retail industry is branching out rather than changing lanes entirely. Experience allows one to build on from what and where one started. This can be done – this should be done – by responding and reacting to big data.

B2IT has an impressive 100 per cent success rate – and for good reason!

Large service, trading, and distribution companies have vast amounts of data that must be collected and analysed but most importantly, these findings must be presented to management in order to implement changes. Data can easily be misconstrued and as such intelligent and user-friendly programmes are needed to present data accurately and for optimal understanding. And this is what Bidvest, one of the largest corporate groups in Sub-Saharan Africa, did. "Everyone is looking at the same set of results, everything is done on Qlik, it's the Holy Grail when it comes to our management reporting," said Bidvest Automotive Commercial Director Preeban Munian.
