Sauk Rapids, MN – RetailBITM, the leading retail consumer analytics platform, was released earlier this week replacing the legacy CLX Data Program. Upon launch, RetailBITM became the shooting sports industry’s largest source of aggregated Point of Sale (POS) data available to retailers, manufacturers, and other organizations.
Having exposure to inventory stocking levels and consumer purchasing decisions is a critical economic resource. The industry’s owners and operators continue to request such information to improve their strategic business decisions. On behalf of our portfolio of companies, we’re proud to bring this resource back to the industry.
RetailBITM is a cloud-based reporting tool that permits users to analyze aggregated, non-confidential information about firearm sales trends across the country. The legacy CLX Data Program, now defunct according to industry sources, peaked around 400 retailers. RetailBITM which launched this week to replace CLX immediately surpasses the old platform with several significant enhancements.
· Includes over 2,000 “real-time” retailers reporting
· Expands on the CLX program by adding online sales to in-store sales
· Adding a first-ever “online search-to-sale” data pool to capture consumer search sentiment
·Expands category list to Firearms, ammunition, accessories, optics, knives, and magazines
·Enables dynamic user search and filters on an individual company or competitive data
