Data, insights and decision making power

The presentation will explore how parcel and postal operator businesses can improve performance (revenue, costs, efficiency) by harnessing the power of their data and transforming it into insights that drive decision making. We'll show how companies have benefitted from being more data-driven with practical examples including business intelligence and data analytics, spot rate pricing, end-to-end costing visibility and customer profitability systems. Supporting topics will include the importance of having one 'source of truth' (data integration and harmonization) and 'data democracy' (delivering insights to end users in an easily digestible format - understanding that not everybody is a data scientist).
