Analysis of extensive estate across a variety of routes to market

The Challenge

Clarks' estate is extensive and they required analysis of it across a variety of routes to market. This included wholesale, retail, online as well as outlet stores in the UK, Europe and further afield.  The business is constantly seeking to optimise the portfolio through openings, closures, refurbishments and re-merchandising. In order to deliver the most profitable decisions, Clarks use the InSite tools and data for consistent in-house analysis.

The Solution

Clarks has used InSite to analyse and manage their UK portfolio and support their strategic market planning objectives since 1998. InSite gives a consistent and quantified view of the retail landscape and the store portfolio. It's used to benchmark the size and potential of any local market against store performance as well as to identify new locations with a high prevalence of key demographic targets.

The Results

CACI has built a long standing partnership with Clarks and understand the complexities of their business. InSite is seen as a vital part of Clarks’ location planning strategy not just for the UK but across the globe. InSite ensures that when Clarks invests in a location it has an accurate view of the size of its target demographic and footwear spend.
