LUMINATE BASIC: LEARN IT NOW!
DSS is being replaced by Luminate. It’s a brand new day.
Starting in March 2024, the reports previously available in DSS will now be available only in Luminate. If you are a small to mid-sized supplier, you must master Luminate — and you must do it quickly. Using it correctly is critically important.
Spend one morning learning how to use Luminate Basic, and leave feeling knowledgable and confident.
Learning Luminate properly from the ground up is both vitally important and urgent.
There are many differences between DSS and Luminate. Don’t waste time struggling through complex information, unfamiliar terms, and different spreadsheet headings. Start off right. Lower your frustration immediately so you can do your best work.
Taught by an expert experienced in analysis and intimately familiar with Walmart, this seminar gets you started on the right foot with Walmart Luminate, the most significant change in Walmart data in the last decade.
Content for this seminar is revised frequently — whenever changes or updates occur.
8th & Walton classes and seminars are exclusively for Walmart suppliers; only a supplier who works directly with Walmart may register.
