PLANO, Texas -- StoreNext's independent grocery customers will now be able to generate customized item movement and analysis reporting with a new application that is part of the vendor's Connected Services offering.
The software, called Category Analyzer, is a graphical tool that tracks and captures in-store movement, costs, and retail data, combining it with pricing and inventory information to generate customized sales and profitability reports. It also provides report sorting and ad hoc query capabilities.
"We needed a product that would take the overwhelming mountain of data collected since we opened our doors in 2002 and sort it into comprehensible reports, letting our buyers make quick decisions," said Doug Sanders, s.v.p. and c.e.o. at Sprouts Farmers Market, a 16-store natural foods grocer based in Scottsdale, Arizona that has used the enterprise version of the software for the past year. "Category Analyzer generates requested reports automatically everyday and sends data to all our stores, enabling them to frame better merchandise strategies and increase sales. With StoreNext's latest offering, the benefits of Category Analyzer will be available not only to on-site users such as Sprouts Farmers Markets, but also to Connected Services subscribers."
The reporting and analysis tool is available via StoreNext's cost-effective Connected Services subscription model, through which users can subscribe to enterprise-class applications at a lower cost than developing and supporting them in-house.
