How Fusion Helps
We act as a trusted partner to dozens of Canada’s top firms, providing critical data-based insights, strategy, and analysis. Below are several examples of the work we've done.
Case Study: Helping a brewery understand the true impact of its media campaigns
We helped our brewery client decide on the right metrics to determine campaign performance, isolating each component of the campaign to demonstrate what worked and what didn’t. Our work not only allowed the client to understand with clarity all the nuances of the campaign’s impact on their brand, sales, and market share but also provided a strategy for optimizing future campaigns.
Case Study: Optimizing a retailer’s store network
Retail expansions are expensive, high-impact decisions that can result in lost opportunities and lost revenue if not carefully considered. We helped our client determine the best locations for expansions by building an innovative model that factors in variables such as profit pool, catchment area, consumer alignment, competition, and drive time, while minimizing the expansions’ impact on existing store sales. We were able to forecast potential new stores’ impact on the entire existing network, and helped our client in opening new locations in ways that maximized total sales.
Case Study: Transforming business strategy to spur growth
In order to stay competitive in the changing retail landscape, businesses often need to refresh and even transform their business strategy when growth stalls. We helped one pharmacy client totally transform its business by identifying high-growth opportunities and competitive white spaces within the industry. By distilling industry analysis and client strengths/weaknesses into a series of quantitative formulas, we were able to confidently direct the client towards the highest-worth growth opportunity in order to maximize their marketing and capital investments, thereby accelerating growth for a long-stagnant business.
Case Study: Helping a retailer automate its inventory process
Many small to medium-sized retailers still rely on manual and subjective processes to run their inventory network, which is costly and prone to miscalculations. We developed an automated inventory allocation tool for our home furnishings client to bring together multiple sales, inventory, and store layout datasets to intelligently allocate merchandise among their numerous stores. Using data-driven analytics, the tool is able to produce inventory allocation recommendations automatically on an on-going basis. Not only did this tool reduce overstock / stock-out issues in each store and therefore increase sales, the automation process also helped our client reduce their labour costs.
There isn't an analytics challenge we won't tackle.
With over a decade of experience solving diverse business problems, we're confident in our ability to provide outstanding results while highlighting new opportunites for our clients.
