This paper will explore the common Retail KPIs used today across all sales channels, define the formula, discuss potential ways to improve them, and explain their use in the routine management processes of the business.
Markets constantly test organizations with shifting customer expectations and competitors seeking to provide better value at a lower cost. This tension is the catalyst that continually pushes organizations to search for ways to improve their services, improve the speed which they deliver value to their customers, enable employees to get more done with less administrative overhead, and most importantly, to constantly grow by generating more revenue. This is the basis of BPM, to be able to identify and capture processes in an organization to create repeatable, measureable and consistent execution of goals to drive their business forward.
Analytics is about so much more than defining high-level KPIs and building dashboards to amplify them. With a little creativity, you can create custom metrics designed to inform every member of an organization. With this knowledge of their effect on the business, everyone can optimize their impact on company-wide goals.
What you'll learn in this webinar:
• Why standard KPIs may not be getting you everything you need
• Who can benefit from these new metrics (everyone!)
• How to identify key metrics and roll them out to the entire organization
• Get examples of how other companies are creating custom analytics
