Manthan Systems Teams with Sprouts to Provide Enterprise-wide Reporting and Analytics

Manthan Systems, the global leader of business intelligence (BI) software for retailers, today announced that Sprouts Farmers Markets has selected Manthan's industry- leading ARC platform for enterprise-wide reporting and analytics. Currently operating 148 retail stores across eight states, Sprouts Farmers Markets has become synonymous with fresh produce, great prices and old-fashioned customer service.

Joining over 65 retailers who rely on Manthan Systems, Sprouts Farmers Market chose Manthan's ARC applications as its business intelligence standard. Sprouts plans to use Manthan Systems' dynamic analytical views and at-a-glance dashboards for greater insights into product sales, store operations, labor, task management, inventory optimization and merchandising. Manthan Systems' unique self- training guided analytics and at-a-glance dashboards will provide actionable information, enabling Sprouts personnel to immediately see key business opportunities, easily identify trends, and greatly enhance the decision-making process.

"Manthan Systems' proven experience in retail business analytics aligns with our vision of arming our team with role-based, mobile and easy to consume information. With their U.S.-led Global Operations and spirit of partnership, they were the perfect choice for us," said Steve Black, Chief Information Officer with Sprouts Farmers Market. "With our exploding growth over the last couple of years, the top requirement that recently came out of our technology steering committee was a robust BI tool. Our entire team is thrilled to get this project live and looking forward to focusing primarily on the reaction to the data instead of gathering data."
