UTC RETAIL, a leading provider of retail management solutions including software, hardware and professional services, announces the introduction of its new Visions application. It is fully integrated with UTC RETAIL’s Merchant database, allowing for real-time decision support.
“Visions is a powerful tool to help retail executives facilitate timely decision making by manipulating the data any way they want to see it,” said Sam Villanti, President and CEO for UTC RETAIL. “Unlike other solutions on the market that are more like a custom report writer, Visions dynamic retail analytics provides Merchant customers with easy access to actionable, live, business data that can be presented to the user in a variety of formats. We designed Visions to be very easy to use at the business level, not requiring IT intervention.”
With Visions, users have direct access to the Merchant database, either locally or remotely. This means the user can get the information he or she needs anywhere at any time, which supports quicker decision making. Visions’ approach of not using replicated databases or external data warehouses also eliminates any issues related to data integrity or synchronization. Additionally, the application offers an executive dashboard with visual controls and indicators that can be easily customized by the user.
The current trend for data analysis is shifting from traditional information delivery and reporting models, to the use of real-time analytics for better informed decision making across the entire retail enterprise. With the recent economic climate, there also is a stronger focus by retailers to minimize costs and improve overall business performance. UTC RETAIL’s Visions Analytics is the tool that allows retailers to take full advantage of the information available in their enterprise system. With a more timely decision making process, retailers are better able to effectively identify and exploit any trends or competitive advantages.
