SAS Institute Inc. Key Developments
SAS Institute and Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions Partner for Retail Customer Analytics
May 13 15
SAS Institute recently struck an agreement with Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions to equip retailers with analytics capabilities, providing them with customer insights at the point of sale (POS). With retail customer analytics, merchants will be able to make sense of the big data available about their customers and better understand how their customers shop, offering up opportunities to better serve them regardless of the channel. By integrating SAS retail customer analytics with Toshiba's retail promotions and loyalty management systems (hardware and software combinations), the renowned business analytics expert will enable retailers to provide near real-time personalized services to their customers. Specifically, through sophisticated SAS retail business intelligence (BI) software offerings such as SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Visual Statistics embedded into Toshiba loyalty management in-store POS systems, SAS will provide retailers with the means to make sense of the all customer data available to them. Through near real-time data visualization and recommendations, retailers could glean the insights to better recognize and react to trends about their customers' shopping behaviors and habits, allowing them to quickly and more effectively identify opportunities to satisfy their customers and meet their needs. At the base implementation, my understanding is that no SAS professional services are required. However, this solution is delivered through Toshiba and its Professional Services group so they might provide those services as necessary. This is not a cloud solution. The TCxVector promotions engine is a Toshiba offering and is implemented as part of the company's POS solution, which is store based. Since this is delivered as a Toshiba offering, all pricing information will come from Toshiba.
