Harvey Nichols is first client to adopt Merret BI from Retail Assist

Retail-only solutions and services provider, Retail Assist, has named international luxury store chain, Harvey Nichols, as the first client to adopt Merret BI.

Merret BI is an “out of the box” retail-specific business intelligence solution that includes budgeting, planning, forecasting and profitability analysis. At Harvey Nichols, it replaces BI tools such as Business Objects, Arthur Planning and Hyperion.

Explains Harvey Nichols' IT & Logistics Director, Martin Schofield: “The new solution is easier to implement and easier to use. User requests can be actioned in hours, not days. Our reporting is now more accurate and, as we have only one licence to pay, it's more cost-effective. With the Merret BI framework in place, we can build in enhancements that will support our business expansion.”

Whilst Merret BI primarily reports on supply chain activity, it can also include other parts of a retail operation to create a universal and consistent business view. Merret BI is not a generic tool: it is designed for retail, and to enable retailers to address the challenges they face through sector- and activity-specific business reporting and workflow.

Retail Assist signed a partnership agreement with software author, Board MIT last autumn. Merret BI is built upon the Board MIT engine, and comes with a wraparound of Retail Assist's sector intelligence, services and retail-ready report structures.

This makes it very quick and easy for a retailer to get up and running with Merret BI. Pre-built retail report templates mean that new users can gain business intelligence from their data gathering, analysis and reporting from day one.
