POWER BI – POWERFUL REPORTING FOR YOUR BUSINESS

TSG are proud to announce a terrific new feature that we have added to our Heimdall program, Power BI reporting. Power BI reports are used to transform data by creating charts and graphs to provide an insight on how your business is tracking.
 

When you log into Heimdall, you will automatically have access the last 7 months of sales data for your store/stores. By using the available filters, you will be able to highlight your best-selling products by category, sub-category and or supplier over a particular date range. These reports can then be downloaded to your system for further analysis when required.

 

We anticipate rolling this out by Wednesday 11th August, once rolled out, you will automatically find it when you log into Heimdall. 

In the meantime, please familiarise yourself with Power BI by reading the Heimdall Power BI user guide found on the TSG website here.

PROMOTIONS

 

PML

 

As mentioned in The Insider on the 28th May Queensland stores missed out in the Mid-Year RYO Share Incentive. Now it’s your turn. QLD will also have a monthly RYO incentive added to the current Queensland & Victoria Q3 2 monthly TMC & RYO Share Incentive!
 

QLD stores – Grow your PML RYO Share in August and/or September for a chance to claim a share of $38,000 worth of TSG online vouchers!
Share Of Market Base is your PML RYO SOM at 11/7/21.

Should you be above the state average for PML, you unlock a growth multiplier! (10% of your base share). This means all your hard work to date is recognised and applied to any further SOM growth you achieve. The program runs for the full calendar month of August and resets for September. Your base for September will be the greater of your August SOM result or your August Base (SOM to 11/7/21).

There are two prize buckets, one for Hybrid outlets and one for the remainder of outlets. Scan vs. purchase criteria apply.

*TSG reserves the right to verify any scan data and scanning practices*

Example of Multiplier:

BAT

 

We can confirm that due to the lack of a 12.5% excise increase this year, BAT have made the decision to not implement buy plans.  BAT will continue to monitor store by store purchase information and if deemed to be above regular activity BAT may enact stock management plans on those stores. 

 

Richland

 

To assist with mutual cashflow management, Richland Brands will be transitioning all customers to Direct Debit.  This is an industry standard approach and should be nothing new to our retailers.

To support retailers with the transition, those who setup Direct Debit during the month of August will have their current credit terms extended by 3 days* Example: 7 days credit extended to 10 days credit. 

(*Credit term extension only available for customers who setup Direct Debit in August.)  Direct Debit Form can be found under “procedures” or speak to your Richland rep.
