Demand signal repository (DSR) is a database that aggregates sales data at the point of sale (POS). DSR systems capture, clean and harmonize large data sets so the data can be queried. The goal of a DSR system is to allow a business user without technical knowledge to be able to identify what products are selling, where they are selling best or worst and how often they are being sold. This information can then be applied to determine how an organization can be more responsive to customer's needs.
