Retail and Wholesale Analytics

With tight margins, volatile markets, and changing customer demands, retailers and wholesalers can’t rely on intuition alone to drive growth and adapt to change. They need data-guided insights. Retailers are turning to visual analytics, as 73% of the top 100 retailers trust Tableau to help them understand their data and take action (including 100% of the top 15 retailers). Tableau is powering retail analytics and wholesale BI.

Top retailers know that by looking across datasets, you can optimize product mix and inventory by season, market, or segment in a few clicks. Zoom in to a period or market, compare individual stores or locations, or get the bigger picture across all your operations to create sustainable, profitable strategies. When conditions change, you’re ready with a data engine that handles vast amounts of information in real time. Explore below some of the creative ways retailers are using the Tableau platform across the enterprise.
