Three Quantifiable Benefits of Predictive Sales Analytics
- Predict customer behavior using custom sales analytics dashboards
- Generate accurate buyer personas to drive sales
- Segment customers into homogenous groups with similar behavioral characteristics
About the Client
The client is one of North America’s largest healthcare equipment and medical supplies provider, that is well-known for supplying medical oxygen cylinders, respiratory equipment, surgical equipment, and other equipment to hospitals in and around North America.
Their complex business structure required expert guidance and recommendations to set up and handle the demand for healthcare equipment while meeting health care standards, as well as managing the challenges associated with sales operations.
To drive profitability and improve cash flow, the healthcare equipment company was looking to analyze its sales operations and optimizing revenue cycles by collaborating with a sales analytics services provider. After a rigorous evaluation process, the healthcare equipment supplier chose to collaborate with Quantzig owing to its domain expertise and analytical capabilities that outpaced others in the sales analytics services marketplace.
The challenges faced by the client were three-fold:
- Inconsistent sales data from disparate sources were unreliable
- Sales reports for 8,00+ SKUs were undefined and unpredictable, based on an accounting system that did not translate into their product hierarchy
- The use of a store-based accounting system offered limited visibility into sales and profitability
To tackle the above-mentioned challenges the healthcare equipment supplier was on the lookout for predictive sales analytics solutions that would improve their ability to track and analyze sales and profitability.
