Using Incorta, this global coffeehouse chain benefited from
Stress-Free Data Integration
Incorta significantly reduces the corporate risk associated with data integration issues by seamlessly retrieving and managing billions of data points across existing systems.
Unparalleled Visibility and Speed-to-Market
Incorta gathers and shares data across systems, breaking down silos across enterprise systems and technologies and offering insights without the need for complex modelling and transformations.
Unrivaled Agility with Real-Time Insights
Teams can move with more confidence and faster than ever before using Incorta’s real-time insights, accelerated reporting, and near-instant filtration and extraction processes.
Lack of insight into performance across locations and gift card transactions
Our customers realized that they needed timely, comprehensive access to data across all locations, like the cost of goods sold at a granular, transactional level: by product, region, store, and week, to elevate operations. Improving visibility into their multiple lines of business would sharpen the supply chain and help them choose the right products for the right places for stronger profitability. They also needed a solution that could integrate seamlessly with one of their primary technology providers: Microsoft.
Next-generation data analytics that offer profitboosting insights in real time
Incorta is the only data platform that can perform direct data mapping: the ability to gather and join data from anywhere across a technology stack—regardless of source, size, format, or complexity, and unify it without any need for complex and time-consuming data modelling or transformations. Our platform’s ability to load data (from anywhere) and seamlessly process and tailor analytics to meet objectives, and offer actionable insights in real-time helps customers move faster than ever before.

This is because Incorta can extract data from a brand’s original application and/or data store and bring it into a single location in standard parquet format for seamless management in Microsoft Azure and other programs.
