Flashboard

Neiman Marcus

With great style comes great technology. 

In the good ol' days, it used to be as simple as popping open the cash register to see get a quick view of sales for the day. Times sure have changed, and for c-suite executives in a multi-million dollar luxury goods retailer like Neiman Marcus, things are a bit more complicated. 

Our Challenge

With multiple sales channels and extensive amounts of sales data being collected, answering even the simplest question- "What are my total sales for the day?" became challenging.

Big Data, Small Screen

There's nothing wrong with gathering data, but data has little value if it isn't used effectively and efficiently. Based on this, Neiman Marcus saw the need to innovate their sales reporting executive dashboard and reporting tool to make their sales data more insightful and actionable.

As a result, Precocity worked together with Neiman Marcus's technology team to develop Flashboard- an innovative reporting tool that merges real-time and historical data into a seamless executive dashboard that can be accessed any time of the day on both iPad tablets and laptops. Prior to Flashboard, Neiman Marcus was relying heavily on static Crystal Reports for sales insight- which were costing the company a fortune in user license fees. These canned reports were distributed daily as PDFs via email and didn't permit users to drill down or customize the reports in any way.

However, with Flashboard, Neiman Marcus leadership now have the ability to:

  • Easily build dynamic, custom real-time sales reports
  • Filter and drill into data by date range, store, department and even the individual product level
  • Access reports at any time of the day
  • Save on expensive user license fees

As a result, Precocity worked together with Neiman Marcus's technology team to develop Flashboard- an innovative reporting tool that merges real-time and historical data into a seamless executive dashboard that can be accessed any time of the day on both iPad tablets and laptops.
