New Customer Segmentation

New

06.12.16

Today’s customers are demanding: They expect brands and retailers to provide them with fully personalized communication. If they don’t get the right message at the right time, they probably won’t buy. Still, there hasn’t been any system that allows easy yet flexible customer segmentation across all relevant data points – until now.

minubo's new customer segmentation tool is now available in your account. It offers:

  • Full flexibility: Segment your customers easy and fast – on whatever criteria you want to
  • Full data base: Build segments on all relevant data points – demographics, transactions & journey
  • Full integration: Easily use your segments in your campaign management tools – via CSV exports or direct data feeds

Dashboards Now Sortable Alphabetically

Improvement

20.11.16

Dashboards are now sorted alphabetically, which makes it easier for users to find the dashboard they were looking for and also sort them according to their needs by naming them accordingly.

Heartbeat: Driver Page Added To Sales Channel Alerts

New

27.09.16

Sales Channel Alerts will now help you to identify why visits, conversion rate, basket size or revenue deviated from their usual average. 

Heartbeat: New Alert! Return Rates!

New

27.09.16

Heartbeat now offers a new insight, which proactively informs you about high return rates for your products. The alert is triggered by looking at the average return rate for the product category and compares it to the actual return rate of the product within the category. An alert gets triggered if the actual return rate deviates more than 10% from the average product category return rate. 

Share functionality for all Heartbeat alerts

Improvement

26.09.16

We extended the share functionality to all Heartbeat alerts now in order to enable our users using the alerts across different teams. 

Comma and Tab Delimiters Added for Feed Download

Improvement

15.09.16

This is a feature for our Feed power users. You can now download a feed with comma and tabstop delimiters by adding &delimiter=comma (for , as delimiter) or &delimiter=tab (for | as delimiter) behind the feed url in your browser.

Export Functionality of Detail Reports to Feeds

New

15.09.16

Okay, this is a big one, that we like quite a lot: you can now transform widgets on your dashboards into feeds with one click! Here is how:

(1) Go on your dashboard and choose the widget that you would like to export.

(2) Click on the eye to get to the detail view

(3) In the detail view you will see the Feed symbol in the right upper corner (see screenshot)

(4) Clicking the feed symbol will redirect you to the feed edit page. Double-check if all required metrics are in there, add new ones, change the sequence – click download. DONE!

Feeds: Download Option Added

Improvement

15.09.16

Improvement for our Feed Users: We added a download button to the feed edit page. This enables you to directly download a feed instead of copy/pasting the feed link in your browser. Saving you some clicks and time!

Heartbeat: Customer Reactivation List Now Exportable as CSV

Improvement

14.09.16

As you might know, we released Heartbeat as a beta to certain customers first. One feedback that we got back that however useful the customer reactivation alert was, it was missing an important feature to make it really valuable to you: being able to extract the actual customer numbers, names and email addresses which were identified in the alert to then use them for E-Mail campaigns. As of today we added an option to download all this information in a csv file – both for existing customers and new customers. 

Heartbeat – Messages not Showing

Fix

14.09.16

Ooops – small hick-up this morning. Our Heartbeat feature did not display the alert messages as it usually should. Our apologies for any inconvience this might have caused! The bug occurred due to a new deployment and we fixed it within 30 minutes after. The alerts did not get lost and are displayed as usual now.

Gross Sales Margin Rate FD now available in custom widget builder

Improvement

14.09.16

New measure now available in Custom Widget Builder: 

  • DE: Warenrohertragsquote FD  
  • EN: Gross Sales Margin Rate FD

minubo Heartbeat: refined low on stock alert

New

07.09.16

beta customers of minubo Heartbeat gave us the feedback that the low on stock alert is useful but that, however, it often is triggered too late in order to be able to reorder in time. We hence made the following changes to improve the alert:

  • Low on stock alert now triggered as soon as quantity in stock is predicted to last less than 4 days (previously 3)

AND

  • Low on stock alert now triggered if customers provide us with minimum quantity in stock values and current quantity in stock falls below that given threshold.

Entity Pages

Major Release

01.09.16

If you have been working with minubo Heartbeat, you might have already stumbled one another new feature in the minubo app: the so called Entity Pages summarize crucial KPI's for a specific area. Think of them as Single Page Views, which allow you to gain a better understanding of the performance and developments for a specific unit. They exist for each customer (Single Customer Page), country (Single Country Page), Sales Channel (Sales Channel Page) and Product (Single Product Page)

Usability Improvements For Dashboard Manager

Update

01.09.16

We want to make it as convenient and intuitive for you to interact with the Dashboard Manager, so we made some smaller changes of which we hope they will make your life easier:

You don't have to click on the "edit" button anymore to make changes to a Dashboard title or description. Instead you can edit it right away by clicking on the pen symbol. We also made it easier to assign a color to a dashboard. Just click on the circle on the left side and the color picker will appear automatically. 

Bunch of Bug Fixes

Fix

01.09.16

Switching language in the report "Customers by ABC Segment" the page reloaded and showed an empty screen. This has been fixed.

Topseller Reports: Sell Through Rate Removed

Improvement

22.07.16

Sell Through Rate led to confusion, hence we simplified the topseller report by removing it from the detail view. 

Mac Excel Now Available as Download Option for Feeds

New

22.07.16

Previously customers who used Excel Mac had to manually create a text file in which they had to enter specific settings and keep special formatting in mind.

We now added Mac Excel as additional download option to make it easier and quicker for our customers to work with the feeds. 

Report Mailing: Excel / PDF format 

Improvement

Improved Clarity for Overview Reports

Improvement

30.06.16

The comparison for "Fullfilment Rate" and "Gross Sales Value after Discount" to last year was not really meaningful, as there was always >90% difference since it looked at the order date for all overview reports. Hence, we removed the comparison calculation to avoid confusion. 

New widget: Return Revenue RD and Net Revenue FD RD in Stacked Bar Chart 

New

29.06.16

This perspective is helpful for the Controlling department as this widget displays the actual cashflow for the chosen dates.

Go to DashboardAdd WidgetControlling and scroll down to Returns.

New Widget: Returned Revenue BD versus Net Revenue BD 

New

29.06.16

The perspective in this widget focuses on the Shop/Marketing aspect and is based on the order date. Hence, the actual revenue on an order level is visible. Values from the past can still vary as long as returns can still come in.

Go to DashboardAdd WidgetMarketing and scroll down to Returns.

Reworked Legend for Pie Charts

Improvement

24.06.16

We used to offer a legend for pie charts by hovering with the mouse over the respective measure. This caused some trouble for customers who wanted to print or e-Mail these charts as PDF as the legend was not transmitted. We have reworked this, so that the legend is now always visible.

Help Text Feature Expanded For Overview Reports

Improvement

24.06.16

We want to make it easy for our customers to understand what each measure used in the overview reports specifically means and how it is calculated. Hence, we introduced question marks next to each measure, that trigger a pop up window with an explanation text when clicked.

Plenty inventory movements 

New

23.06.16

After long delay the API call for inventory movements is working on plenty's side now. The implementation of the inventory movements import has been finalized, so that:
