4. Business Planning

This section provided Business Planning software and utilities.




To make the data handling easier, the documents and databases are also supplied on DVD or Hard Disk Drive which can then be used as a standalone data source or, if required, manipulated and correlated with business planning or statistical software.


The breakdowns of Product Groups, Trading Areas, Competitors, Retail Operations, and Customer / Buyer Profiles are limited to 15 in each group because the Excel spreadsheets frequently analyse the correlation of data between 2 groups of 15. Because of the general limitation of record field numbers (generally 255 fields) one can only produce a 15 x 15 matrix.
