How do we do this?
Our approach begins with digging into your store’s data. The Edge is a gold mine of information about the current health and growth opportunities for your business. It gives us the vision to see what the true potential of your business is.
The Edge Retail Academy is the sister company of The Edge and, with your permission, we can seamlessly pull your sales and inventory data from your Edge system to feed Edge Pulse. Edge Pulse is a user-friendly program that reflects real-time sales and inventory performance on your computer, phone or mobile device, and compliments The Edge reports. Our business advisors will identify insights for immediate action, allowing you the ability to work faster - and stay agile - giving you a competitive edge in today’s quickly evolving retail landscape.

Our Business Advisors are a seasoned team of jewelry retail experts. Their vast experience includes everything from managers through owner operators. They’ve effectively run or owned successful jewelry stores; they bring their experience and industry best practices to your business through our Business Advisory Services.
Jewelry vendors also benefit from access to our aggregated industry data. The focus among vendors has always been about ‘sell in’ (what vendors ship to retailers); but it has been hard for vendors to get recent sku-specific sales data. With Vendor Pulse, suppliers now have access to ‘sell-through’ data in real-time. With this fresh data, vendors can conduct better product development, adjust forecasts, and restock retailers more promptly to maximize sell-through.
