SkuVault and Sisense Case Study

Executive Summary

SkuVault provides an eCommerce Inventory Management Software for B2B and B2C merchants. Indellient worked with SkuVault to improve their existing analytics module within their software, giving clients a competitive advantage. The updated module needed to provide more information in an easy-to-consume way across a set of KPI’s that matter most in e-commerce inventory processes.

Sisense was selected as the new analytics platform and was embedded into the SkuVault application. Indellient worked closely with the SkuVault team from design to implementation over a 12-week period. 

The newly embedded Sisense reporting, now called SkuVault Data-Coach, received strong positive reviews from SkuVault customers for its ability to detect and act on inventory, and product related issues, in near real-time. In addition to more data, the consolidation of data now delivers to SkuVault customers a faster experience to accurately track their inventory levels, sales numbers, and warehouse activities.

The Challenge

SkuVault’s clients deal with large volumes of eCommerce inventory data across their sales locations and warehouses. They needed a standard and easy-to-consume analytics dashboard. The solution needed to merge seamlessly with the SkuVault platform’s user interface.
