Zen-Nippon Shokuhin Co., Ltd Uses Qlik to Analyze Customer Sales Data
Jul 20 15
Qlik announced that Japanese voluntary independent retailer chain, Zen-Nippon Shokuhin Co. Ltd. has implemented QlikView® to analyze point of sales (POS) system data with help from partner K.K. Ashisuto. To better serve its customer base Zennisshoku launched a frequent shoppers’ program that taps into the purchase history of each customer. Through this program, when the customer presents the Zennisshoku membership card at a retail store they can receive automatic discounts or are awarded points at the cash register. The service is currently deployed to 1.5 million customers across 550 nationwide stores. Data from the frequent shoppers’ program is not only used by retail stores, but also shared with manufacturers for direct marketing purposes such as conducting surveys for developing new products. Previously, the data was provided to the manufacturers in CSV file format, which was difficult for users to access and analyze. Therefore, Zennisshoku wanted to provide the POS data via a visual analytics platform instead of just sharing the raw data. After thorough research and thoughtful consideration, as well as a careful comparison of costs, system requirements, response and ease of use, QlikView was selected to become the standard BI platform. Key considerations of the Qlik solution include its: Robust platform that helps users take full advantage of the vast amount of big data obtained from membership card and receipt data; Associative data model which enables users to explore data freely uncovering insights around receipt data, customer purchasing behavior and simultaneous purchases, such as the commodity trend of food industry; Ease of use and speed to insight, allowing users to analyze data daily so they can immediately detect any changes in customer behavior and take action; Robust security features that adjust to meet individual users’ needs and requirements for public external users; Real-time data analysis to facilitate the planning of joint product development and marketing plan development with the manufacturers.
