New Merchandise Management System for Datavantage

Cleveland, Ohio, December 19, 2006 — Datavantage Corporation, parent company of CommercialWare and a leading provider of retail technology for the specialty and general merchandise retail industry, today announced Datavantage Enterprise MMS (Merchandise Management System), a Java-based corporate office information system to optimize retail data flow throughout both retail and direct organizations to enhance sales, inventory turns and price and promotions management, thereby increasing margins, and reducing out-of-stocks and administrative costs.

For example, the solution allows merchants to manage their assortments and make better, more timely decisions by viewing data by piece, collection or down to the store or book level, sorted by size and color, providing real time visibility into business operations.

The Java-based solution is built on technology from SIS Info_Mercio, a Mexico-based innovator in merchandise management systems, which has more than 20 customers (with over 3,500 stores) in the highly competitive Mexican retail environment, including VIPS (a division of Wal-Mart Mexico), Smart & Final Mexico, Calimax and Comex.

The three core features of Datavantage Enterprise MMS are inventory, purchase order and price management. Both push and pull inventory allocation is supported to track the movement of goods from the warehouse to a retail location. Managing orders for both new and replenishment requisitions is made easier with tools like on-demand sales and inventory data in the purchase order process functions. Pricing can vary by channel, store or zone, and complex pricing sets can be administered through Enterprise MMS.

Developed in a J2EE environment, Datavantage Enterprise MMS offers many deployment choices on multiple operating systems, databases and application server platforms.
