Retail organizations face complicated data analysis across their business lines. Waves of product SKUs must constantly change with social trends. Complicate this with thousands if not millions of unique customers, each with their own preferences, as well as the sheer quantity of transactions that retailers execute.
It’s easy to get mired in the complexity and make costly mistakes. You need to possess the strategic technology tools necessary to speed up market trends response, deliver price competitiveness and bring new SKUs to market faster.

The Intricity Retail Intelligence Solution provides you with a customer standardization backbone to let you manage single customer profiles, regardless of the many sources of this customer data. We’ll help you avoid major marketing woes such as:
- Wasting marketing dollars due to mailers sent to incorrect addresses
- Relying on campaign effectiveness driven by guesswork
- High customer churn
- Riddling your customer loyalty programs with duplicate customer records that don't allow flexible house-holding
- Scattering product definitions across a wide variety of channels, creating rigidity in rolling out new SKUs
- Creating a disjointed customer experience between bricks and mortar and the Web
Every retailer wants a better relationship with their customer, but the complexities of developing and managing customer data can be discouraging, if not overwhelming. With so many customer touchpoints (such as social media, online profiles, bricks-and-mortar loyalty cards, and mail catalog subscribers) it can be difficult to pinpoint your customer’s value when your organization has so many profiles of the same person.
