Philippines Grocer to Enhance Business Analytics With New Solution
Robinsons Retail Group, one of the largest retailers in the Philippines, plans to deploy a retail analytics solution for its Robinsons Supermarket chain that would improve business analytics, speed up transactional processes, and enhance retailer-vendor partnerships.
The grocer will use Manthan Systems’ ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics for the solution. ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics is a portal-based supplier-trade partner collaboration platform developed for exchanging information critical to key processes like order management, master data management, vendor performance, inventory management, promotions, rebates, and customer insight.
“Our trade partners will now have visibility on highly essential information such as the performance and stock levels of their products in our stores at any given time,” said Jody Gadia, general manager of Robinsons Supermarket. “They will also have the ease of tracking their payment details online. The ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics will definitely become a powerful tool for them to make proactive business decisions, thereby improving their over-all business performance.”
According to Schaumburg, Ill-based Manthan, retailers generally share only purchase order data with their suppliers. ARC’s Supplier Portal & Analytics was created to change this trend by providing rich analytical solutions which ensures reduction in operational cost of tracking POs and invoices, and avoid penalties by managing the documents properly, resulting in an increase in the transparency of payments.
Quezon City, Philippines-based Robinsons Retail Group is one of the largest multi-channel retailers in the Philippines operating Robinsons Department Store, Robinsons Supermarket, Handyman, Robinsons Appliances, True Value, Toys ‘R’Us, Saizen, Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Warehouse, Trucco, Howards Storage World which are all main anchors of Robinsons Malls and other mall developments across the country.
