Oracle Retail XBRi Cloud Services for Release 18.1

Oracle Retail XBRi Cloud Services includes the following:

The XBRi Loss Prevention (LP) module is a global analytical reporting solution that is designed to quickly identify suspicious trends, transactions, and other data anomalies. The LP module allows easy user access, dynamic functionality, and forensic analysis to make more informed decisions with timely, data-driven answers to business questions and to protect the bottom line.
The XBRi Sales and Productivity (SP) module offers configurable reporting across all levels of the retail organization hierarchy (Salesperson, Store, District, Region, and so on), merchandise hierarchy (item, class, dept., and so on), and/or by geographic attributes. Through a comprehensive set of grid and graph reports, documents and interactive dashboards, users can compare same store sales to past performance and custom goals, measure sales members’ productivity, and evaluate the impact of merchandise characteristics on productivity.

The Cloud Services are hosted in the Oracle Cloud.
