Data Collection and Management

Data Management is the process of collecting, cleaning, organising, and storing data securely to use it to make informed business decisions. Collecting data from multiple sources for multiple products is complex and requires an approach that works for you and your business.

At Ipsos Jarmany, we use cutting-edge technology and years of experience to help you keep your data safe and secure, yet accurate and available for those that need it. With our advanced tech and experienced and qualified team of data management experts, we can help you make sense of your data and achieve greater success in your business.

  • Collecting and managing your raw data from numerous sources
  • Cleaning the data so it’s accurate and reliable
  • Creating front-end visualisations and dashboard so you can derive actionable insights

Channel Visibility

Companies relying on both Direct and Indirect channels to sell their products need to be able to accurately know how much they are selling to consumers, and not just how much they are selling to their channel partners.

Channel visibility is therefore critical for businesses to gain these insights, as well as to optimise their sales and distribution strategies, improve their supply chain operations and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

We are experts in collating your channel partner data into one source of the truth that allows you to make important business decisions using accurate sales and stock data.

We can support you with:

  • Tracking and analysing sales data across different channels
  • Identifying areas for opportunity, as well as potential risks
  • Improving your visibility and insights of the customer journey

Demand Planning

One of the key challenges faced by companies is the ability to accurately predict future demand for their products, allowing them to know how much to produce in the future. By combining 1st and 3rd party data sets, you can accurately predict the future either on a periodic basis or as an automated part of your business process.

With Ipsos Jarmany on your team, you will have the right number of products in stock at the time of peak demand, whilst spending less on warehousing products during slack periods. We take into account historical and emerging trends to bring your business closer to a Just-In-Time model of manufacture and distribution.

We can support you with:

  • Consolidating your raw data in order to identify and analyse historical trends
  • Building AI models to predict future behaviour so you can plan ahead
  • Deriving actionable insights so you can ensure greater internal efficiencies

Inventory Management

Managing stock in channel is a critical part of managing a business. It is equally imperative to avoid lost sales due to lack of stock as well as avoiding too much stock in channel that could result in costly buy backs of aged goods.

By integrating your stock control systems with external suppliers and customers, and optimising the flow of goods between warehouses, you can find patterns and trends in your data which will help to improve planning, and improve warehouse management systems.

At Ipsos Jarmany, we are experts in creating line of business processes that help you manage your stock in both direct and indirect distribution channels.

We can support you with:

  • Consolidating your stock and supply data to get a holistic view of your inventory
  • Identifying trends and patterns in your data to improve planning and management
  • Understanding where and how to implement optimisations that drive efficiencies

Category and Account Managers need stock and sales data they can rely on. Whether it’s to plan future investments or drive the here and now.

Data analytics can help you to gain valuable insights into sales data and customer behaviour so you can identify which areas have the highest potential for growth, where to expand product offerings and target new customer segments, and how to manage inventory and supply chain operations more efficiently.

At Ipsos Jarmany, we have experience building reporting suites using raw data that means these decisions are based on solid and reliable numbers giving you the peace of mind to run your business.

We can support you with:

It’s imperative that you are properly collecting and managing your data in order to ensure data integrity. Once you have data integrity you can start to build models that make predictions based on past and present data, so you can be better prepared for the future. 

There are a number of methods of how to do a quantitative forecast, whether that be time series or econometric based.

At Ipsos Jarmany, we have a team in place that can provide the tools and expertise needed to analyse and interpret historical data, build statistical models, and make accurate predictions about future trends and events.

Dashboards are the perfect solution for turning this raw data into digestable information, and can help you to quickly identify trends, patterns and areas of strength and weakness in your performance. Alongside this, they can easily be shared amongst different teams with rules set to only show each team the information that matters to them.

We have experience with the latest BI tools including Power BI, Tableau, Looker and Qlik, so we’re well equipped to build and design you a bespoke BI solution.
