    To harness the power of data for strategic decision-making, Ashgoal integrated cutting-edge data analytics tools into the company's operations. These tools enabled the company to gain insights into customer behaviour, inventory management and sales trends, facilitating more informed decisions and personalised marketing strategies.

  • The Outcome

    The strategic IT overhaul delivered significant benefits for the leisure and retail company:

    Improved Operational Efficiency

    The modernisation of IT systems streamlined internal processes, from inventory management to customer service, reducing costs and improving response times. Employees could now access real-time data, leading to more efficient operations and better service delivery.

    Increased Sales

    The integration of data analytics tools provided valuable insights into consumer preferences and buying patterns, allowing the company to tailor its offerings and marketing strategies more effectively. This targeted approach resulted in higher conversion rates and increased sales.
