For Better Decision-Making and Personalized, Relevant Promotions

Manthan Systems today announced that Peter Charness, President of Manthan Systems, will present a Big Ideas Session titled, "1,000 Paths to Profit-Each Associate, One Decision at a Time," at next week's National Retail Federation (NRF) Show. Manthan's Big Ideas session will be held at 9:15 a.m., Jan. 15, at Room 3D09 of the Javits Convention Center, Level 3.

Charness' presentation will focus on new techniques that are being implemented at leading retailers worldwide to help them optimize decision-making across every level of their organizations, from merchandising and marketing to store associates in the aisle. The presentation will also demonstrate best practices for creating and measuring dynamic customer segmentations that retailers can use to create personalized, highly targeted promotions. 

"With all the buzz about Big Data, social integration, mobility and omni-channel retailing, customers are driving an unprecedented demand for retail convergence. However, it's sometimes hard to see the links that can help build better customer relationships," said Peter Charness, president, Manthan Systems. "This session will provide practical strategies to bring all these technologies together to better serve today's retail customers."
