Real Time Channel Data Acquisition and Management

  • In a traditional multi-tier Distribution and Sales Channel which follows the Distributor > Reseller > Retailer Model, do you often lose visibility of your product flow beyond the first level?
  • How do you strategize Sales without Key Consumption Data which is accurate and timely?
  • Which of your Products are responding to Incentive Programs?
  • Which is your most Productive Sales Zone and which zones are showing indications of a slowdown?

Channel Data Bridge (CDB), Bytech's revolutionary PSI (Purchase-Sales-Inventory) Data collection framework powers real-time Channel Data Collection, Aggregation and Reporting of Sales/Consumption and Inventory Data for the White-Goods & High-Tech Industry.

CDB's pioneering Channel Data Acquisition and Reporting framework results in a disruptive impact on traditional Channel Throughput measurement methodologies, which has so far been manually driven and hence susceptible to unavailability, poor quality and inaccurate data.

Channel Data Bridge’s unique last-mile Data Acquisition tools, when deployed at key Channel Distribution Nodes automatically enables key Data (Purchase, Sales and Inventory) capture and broadcast to a central Data Collection Warehouse Server. This data is then scrubbed, validated, massaged and pushed into a Reporting / Business Intelligence Server which allows real-time visibility of Country-Wide Product Sales, Purchase and Inventory.

These last-mile Data Acquisition tools enable top-tier Distributors to small retailers to choose from a variety of technologies including Mobile Phones, Hand-helds, Local Accounting System Plug-Ins, amongst other enablements which allow seamless reporting of key Purchase, Sales and Inventory Data to Bytech CDB’s sophisticated Data Warehouses.

This framework comes with adapters to plug into various accounting/inventory systems, including Tally, MYOB, Intuit Quickbooks, hence allowing for in-situ data capture, eliminating most cleanliness issues normally associated with manual reporting.
