Dee Set works with brands to create powerful insights that help them make smart business decisions, create effective marketing campaigns, and improve their customer service. Our people-first approach to analytics helps us deliver some of the most innovative retail data analytics solutions on the UK market - because even the most sophisticated solutions cannot cut it without a team of talented, passionate individuals crunching the numbers.
Our award-winning data and technology capabilities work seamlessly with field marketers across the UK who operate in physical stores, creating the perfect mixture of machine learning and that necessary human touch. As a team, we don't expect brands to be experts in every type of analytics, but we do seek to help our partners to understand the statistics at their disposal with a bit more clarity - after all, the more involved in the process you are, the better the insights become!
The first part of our process is the data. We use in-depth retail analytics to inform AI and machine learning, which allows us to utilise every statistic and stock level purposefully. By utilising retail analysis data in our strategy for each of our clients, we’re able to make decisions driven by data; these insights are truly invaluable and are often the key that unlocks the door to retail efficiency. We’ll use our bespoke technology to make sure that we’re crunching the numbers in a way that gives us useful insights into your product lines - it’s not a one-size-fits-all industry, so we shouldn’t be treating every brand in the same way.
Our system is totally flexible to how you want to utilise our services; you can use your own data or let our field agents collect some up to date information by taking photos in-store. Don’t worry, we’re well-equipped to do so, with over 4000 field agents in the UK, with an agent within 10 miles of around 97% of all UK stores. By letting our agents collect their own data, you can ensure that you’re working with information that’s as fresh as possible, showing you numbers that are as close to “real-time” statistics as we can obtain. We’ll then combine this fresh data with over 2.5 billion units of our own data, which helps us to identify efficiencies, predictions, trends, and ROI opportunities in your retail space.
Our TS Eye tool, which utilizes EPOS data, provides brands with a deeper understanding of how their products perform in store and of their clients' shopping journeys by harnessing a wealth of knowledge spanning consumer trends, industry news, and successful marketing strategies. When brands are looking to take the next step in their business, we're here to provide salient retail analysis that helps them make smarter decisions.
The team at Dee Set enjoys getting their hands dirty with analytics strategies that consider the impact of product selection, shelf space, and positioning within retail environments - it’s this passion that makes us so good at what we do. By combining our POS installation, where we gather fresh data in real-time with our data-backed auditing and intervention tools that function on a data pool of around 3 billion units, we make tangible improvements that result in increased sales statistics on a consistent basis. In simple terms, we strive to maximise conversions in every way we can, with an impressive track record of sustained results.
There are almost 3 billion data units in Dee Set's database and the most surprising part bit about it is that all of this information has come directly from your shelves - it’s not new, it’s not hidden, but it is incredibly useful when trying to analyse why your products aren’t performing as you hoped they would. It doesn’t matter if you need to ensure that in-store compliance regarding a fair shelf space allocation or a promotional campaign is being adhered to, or if a stock take is needed; our analysis tools can help improve vital engagement and sales in any way that you need them, at any time you desire. We know things can change in an instant, so we’ve created a suite of solutions that can adjust just as quickly.
There are a variety of ways advanced data analytics can be used in the retail industry; essentially, data can be interpreted based on the focus areas a brand wishes to concentrate on. We produce retail analytics solutions that truly make a difference as a result of our remarkable ability to perform 1,000,000+ interventions each year - the only way for us to ensure that we can have the biggest impact is to always keep moving, improving, and advancing. We provide insight into consumer behaviour based on data from our in-store calls, EPOS platforms, and cutting-edge Image Recognition technology, which in turn allows you to make critical decisions with more confidence, with the stats in place to back up your choice.
The use of retail analytics can help you identify the most loyal customers for your brand, allowing you to tailor your output accordingly and target these customers more often to increase sales wherever possible.
Additionally, we can crunch the numbers to determine if a product is in demand or not, as well as understand the average output from a collection of stores or from one store specifically - this level of insight means you have the most detailed performance review possible at your disposal.
Through our customized approaches, intuitive technology, and flexible resources, we are uniquely positioned to support retail businesses exactly as needed - alongside stellar customer service from our talented field marketers and data analysts who will help you to always feel informed, involved, and in control of your own destiny.
We are unmatched when it comes to collecting data analytics for brands; our in-depth research, application, and insights are second to none across the entire industry. In our advanced analytics solutions, we can pinpoint specific issues or potential problems within a business infrastructure, but we won’t rest there. For us, our purpose hasn’t been fulfilled until the solution has also been identified, crafted, and implemented effectively.
Data-led exploratory calls can also be conducted at a variety of stores to discover potential issues with the shopping experience, which again is a great example of how our service simple dives deeper than that of any other field marketing agency.
As part of our bespoke approach to retail analytics, we provide a number of options for meeting each client's brief, including instant analytics, snapshots of analysis over time, and automatic reporting features to monitor existing aspects such as planogram compliance, customer retention rate, and lots more of those KPIs that you’ll be looking to monitor over your time with us.
Brands needing targeted improvement across a range of fixtures rely on technological innovation from us to enhance their operations - it’s this level of trust and respect in our expertise that keeps us from standing still. We’re constantly on the lookout for ways to improve our solutions to the benefit of our clients.
By applying our passion for problem-solving, we can collect data from billions of products and stores across the retail industry and create the perfect solution for you - your products aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution, so you’re retail strategy shouldn’t follow this pattern either. Our people-powered, data-driven formula is built around human insights that contextualise and apply a range of predictive strategies. In many ways, this is the special sauce that takes our service from being good to great! As we always say - what’s the point in having data if you can’t use it to inform your decisions?
In its simplest form, data analytics is a process of observing patterns and trends in data pulled from a variety of sources to gain insights and support future business decisions. Analytical platforms will collect data and turn them into automatic performance reports, which will subsequently drive organizations to create actionable strategies that target the biggest problems they face with precision and accuracy.
Today, the majority of a customer's journey takes place in the digital sphere. It’s a natural part of the shopping process modernising and adapting to the technology that’s available. However, this doesn’t mean that the physical store is redundant - in fact, we’ve found that the physical store is still a vital part of the shopping journey and is the place where crucial purchase decisions are often made.
In terms of collecting data, this is fantastic, as we’re able to gather information from more potential customers at far more touchpoints across this journey, enabling us to create a clearer picture of the thought processes and triggers that impact decision making.
Recent technological advances have made it possible for EPOS technology, apps, websites, or data-driven calls to allow brands to see whether their product assortment is being assessed or missed in the real world, which further informs the data at our disposal when crafting a strategy for our clients.
Customer data removes the guesswork when it comes to understanding the customer experience. It shows whether current marketing strategies are truly effective - and helps to identify areas where conversion rates can be boosted.
We use four different types of data in the retail analytics market, each of which gives its own insight into the sales process. The result of this is a holistic overview of the process that can be reviewed and analysed more effectively.
A brand can use descriptive analytics to understand the events on the surface of a particular time period - whether it's a decline in sales or a product launch that just didn’t seem to hit the mark.
When we decide what we need to focus on, diagnostic analytics digs deeper into the underlying cause. For example, why does demand increase from week to week? Using these analytics, we can gain a greater understanding.
Marketing teams can build on this insightful information through this intelligent method, which makes use of complex statistical methods and algorithms.
As the most advanced analytics, prescriptive (or predictive) analytics answers what is often described as the most challenging question for marketers. This is, of course, "what should I do now?". A number of methods can be used to accomplish this, including simulating different conditions and actions, and implementing machine learning algorithms.
Using accurate and effective sources, we provide our brands with best-in-class analytics solutions at Dee Set by partnering with only the highest quality data sources. The numbers are usually checked against leading sources of data, and then validated and scrubbed clean to give our clients ultimate peace of mind. Our retail analytics solution removes duplicates and outlines conflicting totals, giving you a crystal-clear view of your brand's influence as it really is - and as it should be.
