Mastering tactical business decision making with GfK’s weekly data

Lenovo’s UK Consumer PC team rely on GfK’s Weekly Point of Sales Tracking data to evaluate their campaign performance, evaluate and guide launches, and maximize seasonal sales activities. Lenovo not only has access to their own sell-out data, but for their competitors too, across all channels, right down to SKU level.

The client

With its products sold in more than 180 markets, Lenovo is one of the world's largest personal computer (PC) vendors.

The challenge

The company operates in a fluid, fast-moving and highly competitive marketplace. The PC market is increasingly driven by promotions, product launches and seasonal sales activities. As product life cycles shorten, consumer behavior is becoming increasingly volatile and unpredictable, making campaign planning ever-more challenging.
