November 11, 2008 - QuantiSense announced that Meijer selected its retail-specific business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing application.
Meijer also chose QuantiSense for a consulting engagement entitled "Developing Your Playbook," built around the QuantiSense Playbooks, a set of predefined analytic paths that help retailers take advantage of opportunities and correct recurring problems.
Meijer is one of the largest privately held retailers in the U.S., operating 181 supercenters throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. Although Meijer already had a mature data warehouse and sophisticated reporting, the company recognized a need for a stronger context in which to present the data to its users - a structured and systematic method that would introduce new metrics and create new paths from exception to action.
Meijer will kick off the QuantiSense implementation with its merchandising team and expects to complete the initial phase in under 100 days. QuantiSense will provide Meijer's merchandising staff with role-based dashboards that present the most relevant information for each user's department and unique responsibilities in a simple, user-friendly format. Meijer's users will be able to view key exceptions and performance data on the dashboard and easily drill down on any item for granular details. After the initial merchandising roll-out, Meijer plans to expand QuantiSense into other areas of its business such as supply chain services, executive management reporting, consumer insight and more.
"QuantiSense provides Meijer with a strategic platform for transforming the way we disseminate, report and act on information, and it will enable us to link the IT team's operational objectives with the business team's strategic and tactical decision-making," said John Agnew, director, Merchandising Services, Meijer. "We are very pleased that we can get QuantiSense up and running so quickly, and integrating Playbooks into our daily business processes promises to bring a significant competitive advantage for Meijer."
