How does POS analytics work?

Here’s how easy it is to get started with the SPS Analytics solution:

1. We’ll work with you and your trading partners to ensure your dashboard has your data loaded.

The SPS Commerce team sits between you and your partners to collect sales and inventory data, in any format available.

  • Centralized product data.

    "The idea was to grow our online sales without increasing our own data management burden, which would require moving away from our time-consuming, spreadsheet-based processes that had to be managed manually for every retailer. We suspected that a cloud-based technology would have the solution we needed, and SPS Commerce ultimately confirmed that suspicion."

    Lindsey Huffhines, Omnichannel Director, U.S. Stove
