Combined offering enables retailers to leverage real-time social media analytics to drive best-practice supply chain and store execution.
NEW YORK, NY – NRF ANNUAL CONVENTION – January 17, 2012 – Reflexis Systems Inc., a leading provider of retail workforce/task management solutions and Impetus, a leading provider of social media and Big Data analytics solutions, today announced a formal partnership. The two companies’ combined solution enables retailers to monitor reviews, product buzz, and customer comments in real time and respond with best-practice action in their supply chain and stores.
Retailers are under pressure to deliver customers the best possible in-store experience. Yet most lack the ability to track what customers are saying about their service and product offerings to proactively respond and ensure employees take best-practice action. With the companies’ combined offering, retailers can:
- Monitor product and customer reviews and comments and assign best-practice action corrective action in response to positive and negative feedback
- Identify early best sellers and ensure sufficient in-store inventory levels
- Take cues from customer opinions to fine-tune merchandising and promotional offerings
