Several department stores, and other retailers, do not include Dollars or Average Unit Retail (AUR) – the average price an item was sold at that week – on their EDI 852 document.
One of the great advantages of our retail analytics software products is their flexibility to accept data from various sources. We have state of the art hardware and software tools that enable millions of lines of raw, unparsed EDI POS (852) text to be converted for use in our business intelligence system in minutes! By outsourcing this data management process to Enhanced Retail Solutions, you don’t have to invest in sophisticated infrastructure (hardware, technical support, etc.) to get actionable data.
Let’s say a retailer such as Target does not include Dollars in their 852, yet does offer that information on its portal. Enhanced Retail Solutions can add extra value by blending that information into our database. Simply fill out our template (very simple and quick to do) and send it to us and you will see that automatically appear in your reporting, along with a series of financial calculation options.
If you’re interested in discussing how we can help you with missing data such as AUR and On Hand, or you would like to know what data retailers include in their EDI documents, contact us today! We look forward to answering any questions you may have regarding our retail analytics software and services.
