Still running your c-stores on routine?
Today’s convenience store operator has a vast ecosystem of data spread throughout their organization from numerous software systems, vendors, and versions. Operators know that utilizing this data for local insight and action has unlimited possibilities to generate revenue, reduce costs, and streamline operations.
So why are so many operators still making decisions based on routine? Until now, only 10% of your organization’s data is analyzed. The remaining 90% is unused, unstructured, and hidden in software that doesn’t talk to each other. Taiga’s proprietary Data Logistics Hub (DLH) starts the conversation between your software systems giving you One platform for insight informed decision making.
Real-time action is a game changer for convenience
Convenience operators have known for a long time that business intelligence is key to a modern and successful growth strategy. Unfortunately, over 80% of operators are spending significant resources sorting through print reports, transaction logs, and unreliable 3rd party data sources creating little value and far too slow to act.
Taiga’s StoreKeep puts you back in the driver’s seat with real time performance metrics and outlier detection. How is Store 6 performing under the new manager? Forgot to replenish hot food before lunch at Store 3? Likely to run out of washer fluid ahead of tomorrow’s snowstorm? Understand how your stores are performing today when you have the opportunity to make an impact.
Where does my data come from?
Important data originates with customer transactions at point of sale, pump controllers, QSR, loyalty programs, inventory control, and many other sources at your c-stores. With certainty, most of this data sits idle in your stores because these systems weren’t designed for business intelligence they were designed to pump fuel, checkout customers, track stock, etc. Today, many of these systems come with reports or dashboards for operators but they will always be incomplete because none of them can show you the whole picture.
You need the dots connected to understand the who, when, where, and how of your c-stores.
