Sprouts to Deploy Enterprise Business Intelligence Platform
Natural and organic foods retailer Sprouts Farmers Markets, which operates 148 retail stores across eight states, has selected Manthan’s ARC platform for enterprise-wide reporting and analytics.
The grocer plans to use Manthan Systems’ dynamic analytical views and dashboards for greater insights into product sales, store operations, labor, task management, inventory optimization and merchandising as well as to enable Sprouts personnel to immediately see key business opportunities, identify trends, and enhance the decision-making process.
“Manthan Systems’ proven experience in retail business analytics aligns with our vision of arming our team with role-based, mobile and easy to consume information,” said Steve Black, CIO for Sprouts. “With their U.S.-led Global Operations and spirit of partnership, they were the perfect choice for us. With our exploding growth over the last couple of years, the top requirement that recently came out of our technology steering committee was a robust BI tool. Our entire team is thrilled to get this project live and looking forward to focusing primarily on the reaction to the data instead of gathering data.”
According to Peter J. Charness, Manthan Systems’ president, Manthan Systems’ BI platform has the scalability and flexibility to analyze large volumes of transactional data and provide retailers with valuable insights on essential areas such as sales trends, inventory management, store operations, and customer loyalty.
Sprouts operates 148 stores in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
