New York, NY – January 16, 2012 – RetailNext, the in-store analytics leader, today announced key milestones for 2011, including the addition of 16 new retail customers, such as Montblanc and Family Dollar. The company also announced the addition of retail industry and marketing experts to its leadership team and expanded European sales operations. RetailNext made the announcement from the National Retail Federation (NRF) 2012 Conference, where it is exhibiting new video and wireless innovations in its flagship RetailNext product.

RetailNext is an open, scalable platform that provides data collection, analysis, and visualization technology that delivers transparency equal to that enjoyed by e-commerce. Easily and rapidly deployed, it is the only comprehensive in-store analytics platform that aggregates the full set of data needed for intelligent business decisions about retail locations and then visualizes data, in real time, through automatic, intuitive views. RetailNext provides unique analytical insights through detailed reports, a top-notch in-house analyst team and the company’s service for goods manufacturers.

Customer Momentum

In the second half of 2011, RetailNext added 16 leading retailers and brands to its customer roster of department stores, supermarkets, specialty retailers, drug stores, and travel retailers. These new customers bring the total list of retail and consumer package goods (CPG) companies using RetailNext to nearly fifty, measuring the behavior of more than 20 million shoppers per month. “RetailNext has helped our team take data driven decisions rather than depending on our intuitions, especially in a fast moving environment such as travel retail,” commented Rodrigo Fajardo, Montblanc Brand Manager, Travel Retail for North America and Caribbean.

Leadership Team Additions

“In 2011 we built a world-class analyst team to discover how retailers can increase sales, cut costs, and align resources with goals. RetailNext’s real-time data is invaluable, so expert consulting is incredibly powerful in making that insight actionable– and is a booming part of our business,” said Alexei Agratchev, RetailNext CEO. “Impressive Board additions will help us optimize these services, drive European expansion, and propel technology innovations that make retailers’ wishes into reality.”
