NDC are certainly doing something right


While at a newsagent, we discussed magazine sell though rates. Something that I discussed a few times at user meetings. So when I came back to the office I decided to create some reports using our windows program for them to give them a feel of its power. Thinking that others might be interesting too, I decided to blog about it here.

As you can see, there is a significant variation monthly. That is why if you intend to do benchmarking you need about three months figure. With one month, you get these wild variations.

I decided to then see whether it made much difference by supplier. So I took three suppliers and tested them.

You can that there is a significant difference. NDC is certainly doing something right. Maybe the data, our systems supplied them about six months ago for their Sales Based Replenishment program really helped.
