To provide a global business solution that would meet data and information needs at every level, from head office to clients, investors, asset and location management to brand partners. The required solution would not only improve the speed and accuracy of data capture, but also extend the complexity and versatility of their reporting options. The key requirements were:
- Achieve full visibility and consistent analysis for a more effective basis of decision making across the portfolio
- Tools to take KPI investigation further, support operational excellence and inform leasing models
- Save time and resources on labour-intensive processes of data collection
- Reduce the time taken to create tailored reports for head office, clients and stakeholders
- Achieve aligned data quality goals and standards across sites and locations.
- Enhance the interaction with the tenant community as well as the quality and speed in which data can be collected and collated from brand partners
- Improve sharable insights to assist tenant goals, accelerating brand-partner performance and growth objectives
Following an extensive investigation into suitable business systems, in 2017 Landsec adopted Retail Advantage to improve and enhance the way the business communicated and reported information to connect communities and realise potential across their properties.
