Manthan envisions a key role for Business Intelligence and Supplier Collaboration in improving operations and profits for Thailand’s growing retail industry
Manthan Systems, leading provider of retail BI and Analytics solutions, joins Infolyst, top Data Analysis experts, to host a high-level retail industry conference at Bangkok on June 29, 2011. The informative session entitled ‘Action Points in Retail’ targets Merchandise Managers and C-level executives from top retail chains across Thailand to engage and explore ways in which Business Intelligence in retail organizations can be translated into action. A notable highlight of the session will be the address by Mr. Steven Goh, MD and CEO of the Business Company (P) ltd, and Executive Chairman of Singapore-based Retail Asia Publishing on the topic of retailer-supplier collaboration, a key challenge facing growing retail establishments today.
Manthan has been focused on building a stronger customer base in South-east Asian markets, especially Thailand. Underlining their focus on Thailand, Atul Jalan, CEO, Manthan Systems, says; “Manthan plans on being a catalyst in Thailand’s dynamic retail landscape, putting retail businesses here at par with the best in the world with high-end analytics.”
Thailand is one of the emerging and high growth markets for the global retail industry with the latest Euromonitor International report indicating substantial annual retail sales growth in 2010. Government policies geared to stimulate customer spend and aggressive marketing campaigns by Thai retailers helped to drive overall growth despite the global economic downturn and regional political instability.
At the event, Mr. Goh will give an expert perspective on the need for greater collaboration with suppliers to achieve high level supply-chain efficiencies. At the conference, Manthan will also showcase its best-in-class products ARC Merchandising Analytics and ARC SPA (Supplier Portal Analytics), and demonstrate how retailers can use actionable intelligence for effective decision making and performance management on all aspects of their merchandising, marketing and supply chains. Deployed at some of the leading retail chains across South-east Asia, Manthan’s SPA is helping top retailers in the region automate and build visibility in their supply chains.
