BOONE, NC: Today, ECRS (ECR Software Corp.) announced the release of Briefcase™, an OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) decision support system. This advanced analytical tool solves the problem of retailers having a surplus of data, but no timely way to quickly transform data into insightful information that empowers better-informed business decisions.
The powerful OLAP Cube within Briefcase™, combined with an intuitive, simple user interface, enables retailers to quickly extract, pivot, compare, and engage in deeper analyses of critical enterprise information such as stores, items, inventory, customers, discounts, and dynamic promotions.
Automatic system synchronization allows the Briefcase application to disconnect and be used on mobile devices, freeing users to work when and where they want.
Briefcase is available to all CATAPULT® 5.3 or higher retail customers. It complements Catapult’s impressive existing back office functionalities, including centralized, bidirectional multi-store data synchronization and Catapult Web Office™, which comes standard with over 300 best practice reports, and Catapult Dash®, a built-in business intelligence visualization dashboard.
“To run at optimal levels, modern businesses need digestible information from different perspectives within the organization,” explains ECRS President and CEO Pete Catoe. “Catapult Web Office already has powerful analytic capability with its transactional and visual business intelligence reporting tools. Briefcase adds another layer of sophistication for power users who want to extract, pivot, and dive deeper into their extensive Catapult transactional data, empowering them to make more informed, impactful business decisions.”
