Getnow and minubo: Data-driven Towards the e-Food Revolution

Posted by Sabina Mierzowski on Aug 6, 2018 11:34:13 AM

Read in German 


"This online grocery store wants to attack Amazon Fresh" – this is how the Gründerszene online magazine described the market entry of Getnow. A young and innovative company that not only wants to gain a foothold in the highly competitive e-food market in Germany, but also, wants to revolutionize the industry. 

With its innovative business model, Getnow – so far the only pure online supermarket in Germany – is setting its course for the German e-food revolution. With a strategic partnership with METRO Group and its partner DHL, the young company operates successfully in the e-food business without having to resort to its own warehouse or its own courier fleet. Getnow uses the full assortment of more than 50,000 products from METRO and DHL's long-term delivery know-how, and thus can offer both a large selection of products with flexible and, above all, punctual delivery.

Now, it is important to implement this intelligent strategy excellently in operational terms. Getnow has deliberately opted for this data-driven path by relying on a partnership with minubo and our solution, the Commerce Intelligence Suite.

minubo and the GDPR

Posted by Sabina Mierzowski on Mar 28, 2018 3:56:35 PM

Read in German 


May 25, 2018 - this date has been marked in red on the calendar by many trading companies, because on this day the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. Generally speaking, this is a Europe-wide harmonization of data protection requirements. The handling of personal data will be standardized across Europe. Since the demands on data protection in Germany were very high before, at first sight, no special explosiveness seems to lie in this topic. However, if you look at the newly established fines and criminal proceedings, the whole issue is already much more explosive – up to 4% of annual turnover, or 20 million euros, are the maximum possible fines.

As a Commerce Intelligence Company and service provider to brands and retailers, minubo is also affected by the new EU General Data Protection Regulation. How, and to what extent, we will clarify in this blog article.

Proactive Alarm Bell - Individual Alerts for an Effective Data-Driven Working Environment 

Posted by Robin Henke on Mar 27, 2018 1:38:36 PM

Read in German 


For data-driven organizations, monitoring relevant business metrics and processes plays a crucial role. However, it takes a lot of time to design and implement an automated alerting system.

This is already a reality with the minubo Heartbeat feature – the In-App Insights Stream analyzes the data and proactively informs you about negative, but also positive, changes in relevant key figures and processes.

This feature has been an integral part of the minubo Commerce Intelligence Suite for a year and a half. So far, however, the alerts within the feature were predefined and standardized. During this time, we repeatedly received enquiries from our customers regarding individual or situation-specific issues that could not be mapped with the standardized alerts. We collected this feedback and worked on an extension of the minubo Heartbeat based on it.

Video: How the Commerce Reporting Standard Helps Retailers to Keep up With Amazon

Posted by Sabina Mierzowski on Mar 22, 2018 10:26:28 AM

Read in German 


The Commerce Reporting Standard Initiative has set itself the task of enabling brands and retail companies to build a data-driven organizational structure. After all, hardly any retail company has a clearly defined system of key figures on the basis of which a sustainable reporting and analytics infrastructure can be built and ultimately a data-driven work culture can be established – this empty space is exactly what the initiative with their partner Project A focuses on and wants to fill with a Commerce Reporting Standard. 

In her talk at the TrendArena at this year's Internet World Expo, Anne Golombek, VP Marketing at minubo and initiator of the Commerce Reporting Standard Initiative, commented on why a data-driven organizational structure is an absolute must, especially in today's competitive environment within the retail industry. Her hypothesis: Good trade concepts can be successful even with Amazon in the picture – this applies not only to trade companies that compete directly with Amazon, but also to building a strong market position in general.

Watch her talk here and find out how exactly this might look like and what role the Commerce Reporting Standard plays in this process.

Make Data-driven Decisions with Ad-hoc Analysis

Posted by Sabina Mierzowski on Jun 22, 2017 3:52:22 PM

 Read in German


The term "data-driven work" is on everyone's lips. We are confronted with this issue from all sides and we have repeatedly drawn attention to the importance of this strategic orientation within an organization.

The importance of data for business success and company growth is now foremost in many people’s minds. But still, the entrepreneurial practice looks completely different: According to a study by McKinsey in 2016, very few companies profitably exploit the potential and value of their data – although the topic has been around for so long. This study has also shown that data and analytics change the fundamentals of competition in the commercial sector, and that they are essential for business success. And yet, data-driven work has so far only been performed by a few commerce organizations. How can this be if the understanding has already arrived at so many companies?

minubo Annual Review 2016 – an Infographic

Posted by Sabina Mierzowski on Mar 30, 2017 8:35:40 AM

 Read in German


Yes, the new year has long been getting busy again, but still, we want to take a look at the previous year und share the major facts and numbers of 2016 with you. But we do not want to do this in the form of a traditional year-end reporting or packed in a simple blog post with incomprehensible numbers and diagrams. For our 2016 annual review, we’ve decided to use another form of presentation – we've combined all major facts and numbers within this infographic. 

You can expect a great mixture of internal company information and data regarding the minubo customers. Thereby, questions will be answered like in which industries our customers operate and from which countries they come from. Furthermore, the infographic contains technical data regarding the minubo Analytics & Insights App and a glimpse behind the scenes of our company. But at the forefront we present the performance-based figures of the minubo customers – average growth rate, average mobile impact on revenue and the average campaign ROI.

But see for yourself!

Buy or Do-it-yourself? – About the Advantages and Disadvantages of Flexibility in a Business Intelligence Solution

Posted by Sabina Mierzowski on Mar 20, 2017 11:39:00 AM

 Read in German


One can now say with a clear conscience that decision-makers in commerce organizations know exactly how important their own data is: Only those who use their data correctly can manage their own commerce organization and reach their growth targets.

This is exactly what Business Intelligence does. The basis for this is a data warehouse, in which data from the systems used in the company are merged and modeled. However, as with many applications in the software industry, most commerce organizations also ask themselves: "Buy or do-it-yourself?"

Google Analytics and minubo Part II: When Google Analytics Premium is Really Worth it – and When it is not

Posted by Sabina Mierzowski on Feb 3, 2017 9:58:55 AM

 Read in German


Let's go back to the relationship between Google Analytics and minubo. In the first part of our blog series on this issue, we clarified that both solutions cannot be thrown together – Google Analytics is a pure web analytics tool while minubo, the Commerce Intelligence Suite, integrates all company data into a comprehensive omni-channel database and makes this data available to all company employees. These two solutions belong to very different categories, have different use cases and differ in their user groups (Google Analytics is primarily for the marketing department, minubo is used beyond this departmental boundary).

The basic delineation of these two solutions is therefore clear. In this article, we look at the technical boundaries of Google Analytics Free. This free web analytics solution presents the user with clear limits in the area of data processing.

Google itself offers as an alternative to this limited free solution with their paid premium tool Google Analytics Premium. But whether the purchase of this tool is worth about €150,000 a year and whether a combination of minubo and Google Analytics Free offers a higher added value will be clarified in this post.

A comment on Forian Heinemann's data warehouse podcast on digitalkompakt.de

Rarely have I been so impressed while listening to a podcast as I was with Florian Heinemann's performance on Digital Kompakt on Oct 21st 2016. Why? Quite simply: He speaks to me from the soul. For almost ten years, I've pestered people about how essential data-driven work is to the success of a company, both on a strategic and operational level – and I almost fear they cannot hear it. So it is extremely pleasing when another voice finds the same words! Because I can only agree with what Mr. Heinemann says, his main theses are summarized here, along with some comments from my personal perspective. In the “Here’s how this thesis is reflected in minubo” paragraphs, you also read how Heinemann's theses are reflected in our Commerce Intelligence Suite minubo. Have fun while reading!
