Phoenix -- Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. has completed the implementation of the Manthan Systems ARC BI platform and merchandise analytics technology in 166 retail stores across eight states.
In 2011 and 2012, Sprouts completed mergers with Henry’s Market and Sunflower Farmers Market resulting in a mix of competing IT applications to manage the business. The ARC BI platform enables Sprouts to aggregate retail data from multiple sources so that merchandisers, marketers, store operations professionals, supply chain operators and executives can have efficient access to a single application to gain insights regarding business performance.
“The primary motivation for the Manthan solution adoption was the desire to get our decision makers the information they needed more quickly,” said Steve Black, CIO and chief marketing officer at Sprouts Farmers Market. “Teams across the organization needed an easier way to look at data coming from multiple sources, without having to put that data together. We then wanted to have the ability to drill down or drill across that data. With Manthan solutions, all areas of the business have access to timely information on multiple devices, including mobile.”
