Galleria Foundation Services™
Demand Intelligence layer forms foundation of optimization process providing a single version of the truth, increasing accuracy and data security allowing enhanced project management and collaborative exercises.
Buildings require strong foundations for strength and support, Galleria Foundation Services™ provides a strong foundation on which to develop and build retail and category optimization.
At the heart of Galleria Foundation Services™ lies the Demand Intelligence layer, encapsulating data, business process management and security protocols. Having one version of the truth supports consistent business decisions and leads to an economy of scale when turning data into quality management information. This foundation layer makes data available to the whole Galleria solution suite and up and third party solutions already used by retailers. This also increases data security as data is held and managed from one central source rather than being held on a variety of platforms.
Galleria Foundation Services™ will sit as a significant part of the business process and act as an enabler for a variety of business tasks. Galleria Foundation Services™ serves as a central hub from which both internal and external projects can be managed, viewed and monitored. This will enable the creation and maintenance of category roles, goals and tactics and will provide the master data system for these. By being such an integral part of the company workflow there will be greater visibility of corporate objectives, roles and responsibilities.
Galleria Foundation Services™ is the master repository for published trading content. This “Single Version of the Truth” allows other connected systems and downstream systems to connect with the GFS to retrieve the current (or historical) state of any entity held by the Workbench. The list of entities includes: Assortments, planograms, floor layouts, consumer decisions trees, macro space recommendations, compliance, feedback and much more.
