The management report is rascal’s key top-line summary report for retailers.
It gives simple, accurate and up-to-date visibility of stores’ and suppliers’ performance, across key metrics, during the delivery, receiving, returning and crediting processes.
This allows customers to easily measure performance, identify areas requiring focus and facilitates control of the News and Magazine category.
The report is split into detailed tabs which focus on the category sub-sets; returns and deliveries, separated out by newspapers and magazines.
The non-range report is rascal’s primary tool for highlighting range and supply problems across a retailer’s estate.
It gives simple, easy to understand visibility, broken down and ranked by supplier, publisher, title and store performance. The report highlights the scale of titles delivered into stores which were not part of the range as well as those retained incorrectly and not returned.
This allows the retailer to challenge both the supplier and in-store processes and improves control of what goes in and out of stores.
Where appropriate the report is split into detailed tabs which focus on different retailer store formats (main estate, convenience, petrol filling stations). The report includes weekly analysis trending on the key metrics.
Poor process compliance when booking in and returning stock is the key contributor to category shrink. This simple and easy to use report gives management visibility of stores’ performance and areas to focus on which will improve the overall control of the category.
The report can be configured according to customer requirements but typically breaks stores down into clusters such as by regional or territory managers.
The Daily Store Compliance tab shows a breakdown of store scanning performance as well as whether they meet timeline targets for uploading newspaper or magazine delivery shortages which are time sensitive. Any claims for shortages raised outside of these timelines are unlikely to be credited.
The Weekly Store Compliance tab shows process activity across the week and using Red Amber Green colour coding highlights if stores have met pre-defined company KPI’s for performance. It also shows rolling month to date average compliance and trending.
