The Vendor Portal Headache
For brands and product suppliers in the retail space, it's no secret that retail data is often fragmented and difficult to work with. The issue is that most retailers share data in their own unique format - oftentimes sharing data using proprietary vendor portals. And for product suppliers selling into these retailers, vendor portals can be difficult to use and far too time consuming.
To relieve this issue, software companies have entered the market to improve speed-to-insights and automatically download and format portal data. Whether data is coming from Portals, EDI feeds, or Excel documents, these new cloud-based technologies are improving the workflow for suppliers and allowing them save valuable time each week.
Askuity's POS data platform is specifically designed to help product suppliers extract greater insights from their retail data, regardless of data source. Best yet, the Askuity platform replaces clunky spreadsheets by providing point of sale analytics and simplified reporting without ever having to sign into a vendor portal again.
