Digital Movers and Information Solutions (ISI) develop Insight*Point-of-Sale, a completely hosted collaboration solution for retailers and suppliers.

Our customers are soft-goods importers and, as such, have to deal with numerous UPCs, colors, styles and sizes. The volume of POS data they were receiving presented significant challenges when it came to collaboration and business intelligence

Digital Movers (http://www.dmovers.com), a premier provider of outsourced electronic commerce services, and Information Solutions (http://www.isnetusa.com) a software solution provider to importers of apparel, handbags, and other soft-goods, announced today the joint release of Insight*Point-of-Sale, a web-based business intelligence solution that promotes collaboration between retailers and their supply chain partners.

Using a combination of sophisticated data warehouse design concepts and presentation tools in a completely hosted environment, Insight*Point-of-Sale analyzes POS data provided via EDI transactions and provides retailers and their suppliers with current and historical visibility into the movement of products through the supply chain. Users can query, drill-down and analyze voluminous data in real-time to uncover sales trends, stock-outs, overstocks, missed selling opportunities and a host of relevant data that previously had been difficult or impossible to interrogate intelligently.

"Digital Movers has been a proud partner of ISI for many years providing EDI solutions that integrate seamlessly with ISI's world class supply chain/ERP solutions. The offering of Insight*Point-of-Sale is another natural opportunity to match ISI's development expertise with Digital Movers' hosted EDI services," said Ken Konikowski, president, Digital Movers. "Retailers have increasingly made more and more valuable information, including POS data, available to their supply chain via Electronic Data Interchange. The problem is that many companies do not have the applications or the expertise to properly analyze this data and are unable to effectively mine actionable intelligence from the mounds of data. Insight*Point-of Sale is offered in a hosted, outsourced environment so that these companies need only an Internet connection and a web browser to be able to access and analyze this important information and facilitate collaboration."

"Our customers are soft-goods importers and, as such, have to deal with numerous UPCs, colors, styles and sizes. The volume of POS data they were receiving presented significant challenges when it came to collaboration and business intelligence," claimed Jeffrey Clayton, president of Information Solutions. "Our customers have found that thanks to our unique database design they are able to quickly and effectively manage their POS data and, because it is a hosted solution, they require no additional software or hardware. Insight*Point-of-Sale accommodates analysis for both the executive dashboard level with pre-defined web reports and pull-down menus as well as the intense query capability required by analysts."

A web-based demonstration of Insight*Point-of-Sale can be arranged by visiting Digital Movers' web site at http://www.dmovers.com/informationrequest.aspx.
