Joining over 80 retailers who rely on Manthan Systems for their analytical requirements, The Entertainer chose Manthan's ARC applications as its business intelligence standard. The Entertainer plans to use Manthan Systems' dynamic analytical views and at a glance dashboards for greater insights into product sales, margin, inventory optimization and merchandising. Manthan Systems' unique self- training guided analytics and at-a-glance dashboards will provide actionable information, enables users to immediately see key business opportunities, spot trends, and greatly enhance the decision-making process.

"Manthan Systems' proven experience in retail business analytics aligns with our vision of arming our teams with role based anywhere and anytime access to information. With their global operations and spirit of partnership, they were the perfect choice for us," said Sue Dorkin, IT Director, The Entertainer."

"The Manthan solution will be invaluable for our buying team to manage and report on absolute margins, taking into account all supplier funded activities and varying terms. We also plan to use both supplied and bespoke views to analyze every aspect of product, stock and vendor performance, providing dynamic alerts and  exceptions reports across the business. What began as a project to provide some fairly sophisticated margin reporting, that wasn't available as an off  the shelf solution, will now deliver an extensive merchandising tool that will enable the business to spend more time trading, supported by informed decisions rather than chasing and understanding the data. The businesses have really embraced this project and love the intuitive nature of the user interface and personalized dashboards, reducing the dependency on IT for ad hoc queries so we are looking forward to a successful implementation this summer."

"We are truly honored that The Entertainer selected Manthan Systems to support their rapid growth and setting up  enterprise data warehouse needs for better decision making," said Sachit Murthy, VP Sales - Europe and Asia, Manthan Systems. "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."
