As organized retailing picks up momentum in South-east Asia’s largest economy, the leading retail BI vendor has major plans for the Indonesian market
Manthan Systems, leading provider of retail BI and Analytics solutions, partners with PT Karlin Mastrindo to host an in-depth discussion at Jakarta on June 16, 2011. The discussion forum will cover the topic 'Supplier Collaboration' and is aimed at leading Indonesian retailers. The conference will feature leading experts on retail industry and the subject of supplier collaboration, like Mr. Hiren Doshi, SVP-Manthan, as well as Mr. Christian F. Guswai, founder of G&P Retail Consulting, Chief Editor of the Indonesian Retail Magazine.
The discussion forum at Jakarta will bring together retailers, senior supply chain professionals and other industry players to discuss key challenges in supply chain collaboration and explore portal based technologies as an option to address them.
Manthan’s advanced solutions are deployed at several top retailers in South-east Asia. With organized retailing picking up momentum in Indonesia, Manthan sees a critical role in the country’s growing economy.
For Indonesia, BMI Q1 2011 predicts an average annual GDP growth of 5.9% through 2011 to 2014. With a flurry of retail mergers and buyouts last year and robust retail sales growth, global majors such as Carrefour and Belgium based Delhaize are among the big names that have entered Indonesia.
Says Widiana Hidayat, VP – Business Development, Manthan Indonesia; “Analytics will be the critical enabler in Indonesia’s competitive retail landscape. Manthan can bring tremendous value to regional players helping them achieve supply chain efficiencies and intelligence-driven operating models widely adopted in the developed retail markets.”
Manthan set up a direct regional office at Jakarta in 2010, a clear indication of their keen interest in the country. The company has partnered with PT Karlin Mastrindo, a leading IT solutions provider, to gain enhanced reach in the region and future plans include an array of events and interactive discussion forums, customer acquisitions and partner connect programs with best of breed regional players.
Manthan’s supplier collaboration solution called ARC SPA (Supplier Portal and Analytics), an advanced portal-based supplier connect platform, is specifically designed for the retail domain. Deployed at some of the leading retail chains across South-east Asia, SPA is helping top retailers in the region automate and establish near real-time visibility in their supply chains.
