Matching the Accelerating Pace of Business with Real-Time Data

Have you ever found yourself wondering, “Am I getting old, or is business really moving this much faster?” You are not alone. The reality is, the pace of business is accelerating at an unprecedented rate. As someone who has spent their entire career in tech, I can confirm that the speed of business is indeed increasing like never before.

Technology is driving much of this change. Zoom has replaced the conference room, facilitating decisions within hours rather than waiting weeks for a face-to-face meeting. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is evolving at an exponential rate, and its adoption is becoming more widespread. Social media and the 24/7 news cycle can alter consumer preferences overnight. Inflation is forcing customers to pinch pennies, and state governments are increasing minimum wages. Today, an event on the other side of the globe can empty your shelves by tomorrow morning.

Feeling exhausted yet? You’re not alone!

Your Next Technology Investment Should Make Your Life Easier

Capitalizing on Consumer Trends

Consumer trends are a moving target—they can come and go within weeks. Without real-time visibility into your data, you’ll always be playing catch-up. Your technology should enable you to quickly identify new trends and adjust your pricing, product mix or promotion strategy before the window of opportunity closes.

Maintaining Your Margins

Costs are changing every month, and maintaining your margins on every product is a significant challenge. Let your technology handle the heavy lifting by sifting through data and highlighting key pricing decisions.

Instant Alerts

Leverage AI to detect anomalies in your data so you can resolve important issues within hours rather than days. For instance, if fuel sales drop by 25% at your busiest dispenser, your maintenance team will be alerted, allowing the issue to be resolved before it becomes a painful problem.

Don’t Put the Cart Before the Horse

Before adding new technology systems, ensure you can measure their impact on your business. Take self-checkout as an example—there are many stories about its successes and failures. Having access to the right data will enable you to adjust your strategy as needed to ensure successful implementation.
