High-impact actions for high-performance stores

The pandemic has blown apart the traditional store P&L. With labor costs surging and store traffic being funneled towards ecommerce, retailers need to constantly re-evaluate their store operations to stay effective. It’s not about more data–store managers already spend hours pouring over reports but most are unable to consistently find and act upon the right insights. Performance Planning eliminates the confusion by clearly marking risks and charting a path to overcome them.

Specific insights and actions to avoid risks and capitalize on opportunities


  • Advanced risk detectionSpot where you’re at risk of missing your sales targets with sophisticated forecasting algorithms that alerts you to the segments and metrics that need attention well in advance.
  • Opportunity analysisJust because a store is hitting its targets, doesn't mean it’s hitting its potential. Tulip’s Performance Planning solution analyses the complex web of store data inputs in order to identify and take action on hidden optimization opportunities.
  • Automated insightsRather than rely on each regional, district or store manager to spend time trying to interpret their numbers, Performance Planning provides AI-driven insights into how to optimize performance. It uses predictive analytics to identify risk and offers contextual recommendations based on benchmark data, the retailer’s unique operations, and industry best practice.

Impactful tools that start creating value right away


  • Intuitive UIAnswer questions like “which stores could continue to meet their sales targets with fewer labor hours?” in just a few clicks with role-specific insights that make it simple for each user to get the information they need without being a data analyst.
  • Interactive dashboards and reportsDive into specific metrics, time periods, or segments with simple filterable dashboards and reports that let you spot big-picture risks and easily determine what to do about it. With Performance Planning, some store managers have replaced up to 25 different reports and saved 6h/week trying to demystify them.
  • Intraday visibilityMake adjustments in real-time with an up-to-the minute view into everything from which products are moving the fastest to how you’re performing against targets.
