Retail Tool Provides Access to Near Real-Time Data

The Retail Council of Canada (RCC) has launched an interactive platform that delivers key details on Canadian retail sales, job numbers, economic data and consumer spending.

“The last couple of years have been a time of profound change for the retail industry and it’s more important than ever for retailers to leverage the power of data and seize opportunities to yield long-term success,” says RCC president and CEO Diane J. Brisebois.

The Retail Pulse Dashboard collects and consolidates information from various sources, including Statistics Canada, to help users find critical information across multiple retail sectors, regions and timeframes.

RCC worked closely with KPMG and Canada’s data visualization team, Lighthouse, to develop the customizable tool to help retailers and their business partners access this data.

“Today, retailers need to make informed decisions faster than ever,” says Kostya Polyakov, national industry leader for consumer and retail, KPMG in Canada. “KPMG developed a smart platform that collects and delivers near real-time industry intelligence across the metrics that matter to retailers so they can make better, more informed business decisions.”
