Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 25, 2009
Family Dollar has had several years experience in applying APT's Test & Learn platform software to optimize a number of strategic initiatives, from labor operations and capital investment to marketing and merchandising. Family Dollar chose APT in large part because of the breadth of the issues that can be optimized using the Test & Learn Solution.
This month, Family Dollar expands its Test & Learn capability with the licensing of Market Basket Analyzer, a fast, flexible tool for capturing and analyzing vast quantities of intricate transaction log data.
"Family Dollar continuously strives to stay relevant to its customers," said Dorlisa Flur, Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer at Family Dollar. "To that end, Family Dollar is expanding its analytic capability by integrating APT Market Basket Analyzer into its decision-making process. The integration of APT Market Basket Analyzer with Family Dollar's existing Test & Learn capability will allow more precise measurement and optimization of marketing and merchandising initiatives, helping Family Dollar to be a compelling place to shop for its customers."
"APT is pleased to continue our partnership with Family Dollar, a company with an outstanding record of innovation and success," said Anthony Bruce, CEO of APT. "We are proud to offer sophisticated solutions to keep pace with Family Dollar's rapid growth."
