Manthan Systems, the global leader in Retail Analytics and Business Intelligence, announced today that it will be exhibiting and presenting at the NRF 103rd Annual Convention and Expo in New York City, New York, January 12-15, 2014. The theme of the 2014 event, nicknamed “Retail’s BIG Show” is “Perspective Elevated,” which indicates a focus on game-changing ideas for retailers and the technologies that support them.

“We’ve seen retailers embrace real-time analytics over the past few years,” said Kevin J. Walker, SVP and GM of Manthan Americas. “Now it’s time for retailers to turn their eyes towards the next phase of solutions, that is, those that can Analyze, Decide and then Do. Manthan will introduce analytic applications that optimize the complete business decision lifecycle, with capabilities for automated discovery and recommendation, using predictive analytics, scenario-based optimization and process execution capabilities. These capabilities are expected to optimize all stages of the planning to execution lifecycle, which is a repeatable and iterative continuum. In other words, we’re not only helping retailers make optimal decisions, we’re helping them run optimal business processes.”

The complete ARC suite of analytical applications is designed to support end-to-end engagement on the analytic needs across the entire business decision making and action lifecycle. For instance, the Manthan mantra, “Analyze. Decide. Do.”, is layered contextually on every business process, such as assortment tuning, markdown optimization, price optimization, plan performance optimization, promotion optimization and other applications. Leveraging this design, users can accomplish the following:

  •     Automate analytical process for decision making (i.e., a step beyond decision support)
  •     Optimize micro-level decision points with auto-discovery and auto-recommendation with the support of predictive analytics
  •     Eliminate the need for different technologies to support the entire decision lifecycle through implementation

As a result, retailers will be able to react to a huge number of unplanned scenarios with precise actions leveraged ARC solutions. Developed for usability, ARC makes sophisticated analytics technology accessible to the average user in the retail organization.

“ARC solutions bridge the chasm from decision support to decision-making. We see our solutions as ‘game-changers’ in the way retailers both adopt and interact with analytics solutions from here on out,” stated Walker.

Manthan will be demonstrating ARC solution modules at The BIG Show, including ARC Merchandise Analytics, ARC Customer Analytics, ARC Vendor Link and ARC Vendor Insights, at Booth #2775 on Level 3 of the Jacob K Javits Convention Center. To make an appointment to see ARC solutions in action, retailers can email the company directly.
