Designing Couture Data with Microstrategy

Tory Burch is an American lifestyle retailer providing elegant, ready-to-wear shoes, handbags, accessories, watches, and beauty products to customers worldwide.

VISUALIZATION TOOLS WERE ILL-FITTING

Managers at the regional and store levels, as well as marketing and planning teams, were struggling to visualize data needed to make critical operational decisions. Better visibility was needed into things like:

  • Product sales and promotions
  • Merchandise returns
  • Store-to-store comparisons
  • Foot-traffic-to-buyer conversion rates
  • Supply chain management

It was essential that a solution provided the ability to see all of this information by store, employee, and product.

Creating a Designer Solution

We began with a data model “makeover” to ensure that the inputs were accurate and comprehensive. This process laid the foundation for the MicroStrategy implementation that would make a true difference for Tory Burch employees.

Continuing with our roadmap, we delivered both “pushed” reports – like Flash Sales figures – to deliver a daily overview of sales as well as self-service reporting functionality.

We built powerful dashboards using the MicroStrategy platform that present myriad options for parsing data to get the most accurate answers to the most urgent questions.
