Manthan Systems, Inc., a leading producer of retail analytics and performance management solutions, today announced that Robinsons Retail Group, one of the largest retailers in the Philippines, has selected its retail analytics product, ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics for their Robinsons Supermarket Chain.
Robinsons Supermarket was looking for a platform that would improve business analytics, speed up transactional processes and enhance retailer-vendor partnerships and ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics fitted well into their requirement. ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics is a portal-based supplier-trade partner collaboration platform for exchanging information critical to key processes like order management, master data management, vendor performance, inventory management, promotions, rebates and customer insight, etc.
Generally, retailers share only Purchase Order data with its suppliers. ARC’s Supplier Portal & Analytics changes this trend by providing rich analytical solutions which ensures reduction in operational cost of tracking POs and invoices, avoid penalties by managing the documents properly, and hence increase the transparency in payments.
The General Manager of Robinsons Supermarket, Mr. Jody Gadia said, “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. 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.”
Manthan’s MD & CEO, Atul Jalan quoted, “It’s wonderful to see Robinsons Retail grow and extend their retail analytical capabilities. Suppliers generally have limited or no access to Business Intelligence (BI). However, with ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics, it is going to provide Robinsons Supermarket and their suppliers a transparent and 360 degree view for collective decision making. I am confident that Robinsons Supermarket will leverage ARC’s extensive supplier portal design and platform to their benefit.”
