CASE Studies

An international chain of brand name retail outlets has 8 locations in two regions. Company management wants the following information DAILY: (a) SALES (dollars sold), (b) TRAFFIC (number of visitors), (c) PURCHASES (number of visitors who made a purchase). From this basic information, the company calculates AVERAGE SALES (a/c) and CONVERSION (c/b) rates. This is how management monitors the daily activity of the outlets. Each store manager was tasked with submitting this data via email to the general manager (GM). The GM would manually aggregate the data in Excel. All of the historical data was lost when the GM's computer crashed. It should be noted that the company's POS (point-of-sale) system has some of this information but it is a legacy (old) system and it is not a practical source for daily data.

L5 Metrics setup 3 DataPods for the 3 pieces of data (a,b,c) and assigned each store manager as a submitter to each DataPod. By the end of the first day, all 8 store managers were instructed how to logon and submit this data. The following day, a custom report (2 consulting hours) was developed to compute the average sales and conversion rates. So, by the end of the second day, management was able to see the prior day's results by location and region on their mobile phones. Today, the GM reports that everyone saved time gathering and delivering this information. Later, L5 Metrics also developed a web query and Excel template for other trended reports and analysis.
