    Tailored retail data to maximise your sales opportunities

More market intelligence than ever before

Monitoring your sales performance is key to managing retail business. But understanding your internal data – and how it compares to what’s happening in the wider market - can be challenging.

Many retail businesses fall short of accurately following and acting on trends, and understanding relative performance due to lack of knowledge, resources or time constraints.

BDO has solved this problem with the Australian Retail Index. The Index allows you to quickly and easily benchmark your performance against the market, enabling you to react more quickly than ever before to upturns and downturns in business.

Tailored market intelligence delivered straight to you

BDO and Retail Express are excited to release a new website and mobile platform, providing you with more market intelligence than ever before. The Index’s benchmarking capabilities will enable you to:

  • Better understand current market conditions and view fluctuations in one clear snapshot
  • Compare sales against the market - every hour, every day
  • Respond pre-emptively to market trends, potentially optimising cost-savings and profit.

Drawing information from thousands of retail stores across the country, the Australian Retail Index is the only resource for obtaining in-depth Australian retail sales data on a monthly, weekly and daily basis across four key categories:

  • Fashion and accessories: clothing, accessories and footwear
  • Furniture and homewares: general household goods, cookware, furniture and floor coverings, lighting, linen and textiles
  • Sporting and recreational goods: sporting equipment
  • Other general retail: gifts, health and leisure goods.
