M&S, one of Europe’s largest food, clothing and home retailers, wanted to improve revenue by reducing in-store execution issues. They believed display and floor availability challenges were causing them to miss out on sales.

M&S has a strong tradition of ‘probing’ performance issues weekly at each store, and wanted an out-the-box solution to (a) support and streamline this key process and (b) implement the required fixes effortlessly across its 1,400 stores.

What we did.

Improving performance by fixing
instore issues.

Step 1. Rapid data consolidation.

In 3 weeks, Quorso’s Data Team built an automated pipeline to ingest POS data from 1,400 stores, for 480,000 product lines, across 1,500 sub-categories (e.g. Linen).

Step 2. Robust ongoing analysis.

Quorso’s intelligent analytics layer now continuously benchmarks sales of each product line against a control group of similar stores, (with the same shelf-space, range and demographics). In short, Quorso identifies areas where, controlling for all other factors, sales of a specific product are lower than expected.

Step 3. Taking action, measuring impact
and scaling success.

Store GMs and Section Heads saw right away that Quorso freed up 5-6 hours of their time each week. They now understand the revenue impact of an untidy rack of jeans, of not replenishing strawberries quickly enough, or not sticking to the planogram. They record in 3mins in the Quorso app each action they take to drive sales, measure the extra revenue from those actions, and learn what is working for colleagues across the other country.

Step 4. High engagement and material improvement in just 3 months.

Each participating M&S store takes 15 actions in Quorso each week, resulting in 1.9% extra revenue – equivalent to c.£190 million of additional sales across the company. 96% of Quorso suggestions are able to be acted on immediately, the majority in the store itself, with 4% requiring escalation to central teams, e.g., supply chain.
