Partnership with Circuit of OFD in the field of processing of Big Data

Fiscal data operators and "Circuit of OFD" announced on March 25, 2019 First OFD partnership in the field of processing Big Data (Big Data). Cooperation is intended to increase the accuracy of analytical results and quality of market research of sales. Earlier First OFD agreed about integration of examination on analytical products from several more OFD.

Including fiscal data operators First OFD and Circuit of OFD agreed about consolidation of examination in the field of Big Data. Information arriving from cash desks to OFD contains many data necessary for analytics of sales. Obtaining analytical results with a given accuracy requires a bigger covering, than at each operator separately.

It is expected that consolidation of operators will allow to unify work with data and will increase market research accuracy. The relevance and accuracy of the data will be additional benefit of new analytical services — information in anonymous form excludes possibilities of an error. All analytics and statistics on the basis of this information will be provided in dynamics. It will allow clients to react quickly to trends and to reduce economic and production risks.

In the field of OFD the ecosystem of analytical products forms — the development director of First OFD Maxim Larkin told. — It is quite logical, during the work with Big Data horizontal scalability is essentially important. Any system which means processing of Big Data should be expanded. Increasing amount of data, we increase representativeness of selection and accuracy of the analysis.

The market of trade and services needs qualitative analytics. It helps players to see trends, to make plans and to adjust a motion vector. That the market could receive such analytics, it is necessary to generalize and process Big Data — the Circuit.OFD project manager Mikhail Dobrovolsky considers. — Fiscal data operators have the different market size and different quantity of the connected points. They can create analytics, but separately it will not be such large-scale as it is necessary for the market. Interaction of fiscal data operators allows to analyze more data and to make more exact picture.

"The circuit of OFD" became the fourth operator who joined integration of efforts on work with Big Data. Early at the initiative of First OFD agreed about cooperation with operators "OFD-YA" and Taxcom.

Creation of a joint product with "OFD-Ya"

On February 19, 2019 First OFD reported that together with "OFD-Ya" made the decision on cooperation. The companies will combine efforts on work with big to data.

For February, 2019 fiscal data operators are obliged to transfer information from cash desks to FTS and also to store and provide its confidentiality. In the personal accounts clients of operators can receive a number of sales reports which were carried out via their cash registers up to the specific check. However information transferred from cash desks contains a huge number of the data useful to analytics of sales of goods and services, to price influence on trade, physical existence or lack of goods on the shelf and many others. The complexity of drawing up and the analysis of "broad picture" of the market consists that, first, data are stored at a large number of operators (for their February, 2019 20), and secondly information in operators is stored in different "formats". The selected approach which announced First OFD and "OFD-Ya" will allow to integrate the depersonalized data under one denominator that, according to partners, will allow to increase the accuracy of any research on market research.

According to the statement of First OFD, as a result of cooperation the product, "more reliable, than existing solutions" as data of First OFD and "OFD-Ya" are authentic is created and exclude possibilities of a human error. Besides, statistics and analytics gathers in real time that allows clients to have access to all information online, but not in 3-4 months.

Products which we are capable to offer for clients and producers, having combined our efforts, more technologically, quicker and that the most important, more precisely. Producers receive analytical tools of the 21st century. Consolidation of efforts of OFD for creation of a product allows to solve a set of the problems facing large manufacturing companies. This and exact determination of market trends, both optimization of logistic loadings, and planning and administration of marketing campaigns online.
Maxim Larkin, development director of First OFD

It is the first project on work with BigData combining efforts of several players of the market of OFD. At modern speed it is not enough to have information, it is necessary to have it online – it is the key factor influencing business development. Using the developed solution we will transform BIG the data given in SMART and we will provide to business the asset capable to make profit. Thus, the quality of use of analytical information changes. In fact, we offer clients much more effective alternative to traditional data management systems in real time.
Alexey Potapov, commercial director of "OFD-Ya"

As a result of cooperation clients of First OFD and "OFD-Ya", such as companies of retail and producers, will be able to receive, for example, the tool for rapid response and risk reduction when carrying out big and resource-intensive marketing campaigns.
