Matalan Chooses SAS' Enterprise Intelligence Platform
Matalan has selected the Enterprise Intelligence platform from SAS in an attempt to improve its ability to share sales information throughout its business and increase the speed at which it can be accessed. SAS claims that the solution provides Matalan with a platform for data integration, analysis and reporting. It was chosen for its ability to cope with the company’s 466 million transactions per year. SAS will integrate data from Matalan’s disparate systems and work to improve the quality and timeliness of its information. The company will benefit from having visibility of the previous weekend’s trading figures by the following Monday morning. The aim is for a traffic-light report covering size, colour and store performance, to be delivered electronically. This will provide detailed insight into the stores’ sales patterns enabling immediate response to trading performance. Capgemini is working with SAS and Matalan as the consulting and implementation partner.
