Every company has data, but how readily accessible is this data? Between consumer data, employee data, and sales data, no single staff member, or a whole team, is capable of sifting through all their company data on a daily basis. This issue renders meaningful data that could help any company make better-informed decisions for their business relatively useless.
Gaining a deeper insight into your business is pivotal to maximize production rates, avoid unnecessary expenses, initiate needed changes, and much more.
Let’s pretend that you’re a restaurant owner. It is likely that you have specialized software that showcases who is working and another software that holds information on what you’re selling exactly (the POS system). A third software may provide data on the most popular items purchased and items that were not purchased on that given day. Perhaps you also do takeaway orders. That’s quite a lot of data, and that data will change on a day-to-day basis. To analyze this data manually through multiple different software becomes challenging and time-consuming, but what if it were all in one place?
Optimizing Staff and Inventory
Having your data logged on a single dashboard could better inform your purchasing decisions. If you know on Thursdays, that the golf club comes in after their round for burgers and beer, then you know to have a higher stock of burgers and more workers on the floor during those allotted hours.
If you offer takeaway and delivery options, you can go one step further. Getting insights into the amount of staff working at any given moment and the orders coming in from the restaurant and from delivery platforms allows you to create the most efficient rosters - ensuring you don’t have staff waiting around for something to do, while also preventing you from having to limit your takeaway orders because of lack of staff.
Of course, you know some things by experience, and this data is already available through your numerous software. Having it in one place creates a flow of efficiency and accessibility that keeps your company running coherently.
The Current Market
Large software companies like Microsoft offer data engineering solutions that are suitable for bigger enterprises that are willing to pay high licensing fees and have their data locked into one source. However, small and mid-size businesses often operate at a risk when choosing big tech companies like Microsoft for data engineering due to a complicated user interface as well as customer lock-in, making it difficult to access your data on your terms.
Another issue with the big tech companies is that as they only work with their own products; they do not link to industry-specific systems like your POS, or perhaps your booking, order, or ticketing platform. Each system needs to be linked separately!
Medium-sized businesses that already have data and want to maximize their insights from it are often the ones in need of a more unique, personalized data solution. In many cases, data collection requires the use of multiple specialized software programs that cannot be integrated with software products offered by big tech companies such as Microsoft. One example could be a company that uses software for tickets purchased by web application versus another software for tickets bought in person at a kiosk.
What Pearstop offers is a user-friendly solution that brings all your various data together onto one user-friendly dashboard. The result is an affordable product that is personally customized, easy to integrate with any data source, and does not require the consultation of an IT professional to use.
