    The Consumer Insights Engine has been invaluable in providing us with quarterly updates on changing customer needs and preferences. Dixons have now been using this tool for the past year and the insights from the tool have been appreciated across the organisation including teams working on ranging, and marketing campaigns; and it’s provided an additional dimension to the POS data.

    The fact that the tool is easy to use and intuitive has been key, as it’s enabled us to roll out quickly across the teams - with GfK on hand to provide training support where it was needed.

    We see GfK’s Consumer Insights Engine as a tool for any briefing, and for any campaign. We rely on it to plan ad hoc marketing campaigns to supplement our scheduled activities. With the insights into which consumers buy which products, what channels they use to shop, and their reasons to purchase, we have the information we need to prepare tactical campaigns fast. We can react to competitors’ campaigns and promotions to protect and defend our position. The dashboard allows us to adapt our campaigns with relevant products and messages and create new actions as needed for each one of them. Of course, these learnings feed into our longer-term planning cycles too.
