We’ve heard from former SPS Analytics customers that they’re frustrated by inflexible reporting, poor support and data limitations. Because they’re primarily an EDI provider, SPS doesn’t live up to its promise of powerful analytics.

Alloy is different. Our platform is built to help you maximize the use of POS, which means:

  • We don’t care where your data comes from. EDI, portal, spreadsheet or email, our platform extracts and harmonizes it across every channel, so you always get the most granular and robust data.
  • We don’t limit you to pre-built reports. Our dashboards are completely flexible, so you can zoom in, filter and regroup anything to keep answering the next question, on the fly.
  • We don’t keep sell-through siloed. Alloy connects sell-through with marketing events, forecasts, orders and shipments to deliver the context you need to quickly make decisions and drive action

Most importantly, we’ll never leave you hanging. As one sporting goods maker put it, “We had POS data before, but were limited in what we did with it. With Alloy, I don’t think there’s ever been a case where we’ve come up with a scenario of what we’d like to see and been told we can’t do that.”

Here are just a few examples of how Alloy can help your brand.
