Statistical Analysis on Pelican Stores

Recently, most of the business people are opening up sub branches of the main stores, making the investment plan to be a kind of a chain which is answerable to an overall manager or the main store. Pelican store happens to be one of those kinds of chain stores, whereby it operates with other branches in different places but dealing with the same commodity. Due to increased competition between firms dealing with female clothes, Pelican stores decided to stand out and give promotions and offers to the customers who occasionally visited any of the branches (Palcic. 68)

In order to plan well on how to give the coupons to the customers, the management decided to do a thorough research and analysis of how the customers visited the shops, how much they spent on different clothes, their age and lastly the mode of payment most of the clients preferred. The shops are currently encouraging clients to use their own cards for payment, a card known as proprietary card. Different awards were set aside for all categories of purchases made, proprietary payment method being valued higher for the benefit of the stores. For the management to make a good arrangement on the promotion, the following data was obtained based on how customers visited one of major stores, and a clear arithmetical analysis was carried out.

Analysis Report on Recorded Data

Mean

Mean is described as the average assessment of any figures, where in our case, the management of pelican stores decided to work out the average number of customers who visit the outlet in a day, the average number of clothes bought and the average income expected by the shop in a single day.

Mean of clothes purchased

Number of clothes purchased 124

No of customers 50

Average clothes bought by one customer 124÷50

3. ANOVAs

The management, by use of the above data was able to determine the different modes of payment done by their customers and how they affected the sales through promotion. In our case here, customers who used proprietary card as a mode of payment was rewarded with a coupon, hence an evaluation was done.

Method of payment Proprietary card Master card Visa card cash American Express

Number of customers 10 7 19 11 3

Analysis Findings

From the above table, it is evident that most of the clients used visa to pay for their clothes. The data collected here gives a reason as to why the promotion was not as successful as intended as less people used their own originated cards as means of payment (Romani, 67). Pelican stores had the plan of rewarding any customer who uses the proprietary card and from the figures above, it is clear that only ten customers out of the fifty were able to get the coupon. Lastly, I would recommend the promotion team to put more emphasizes on enlightening the people on the importance of using proprietary card in order to increase sales and reward their esteemed customers as well.
