Hibbett Sports Selects QuantiSense for Business Intelligence Platform
QuantiSense, the leading provider of retail analytics and decision orchestration solutions, today announced that national sporting goods retailer Hibbett Sports (NASDAQ/GS: HIBB) has selected the QuantiSense Decision Orchestration PlatformTM for its enterprise business intelligence solution.
With over 800 stores in twenty-six states, Hibbett Sports stocks a large selection of athletic footwear, athletic apparel and team athletic equipment. This rapidly growing retailer needed a single foundation for enterprise business intelligence that could satisfy current merchandising and store operations requirements and expand to other departments over time.
“It is our opinion that QuantiSense has the deepest functionality and most comprehensive retail analytics offering available. Their long-term strategic growth plan was also an important factor in our decision,” stated Mike McAbee, Strategy Officer and VP of Merchandise Planning for Hibbett Sports. “Their #1 position in the newly released RIS LeaderBoard validated our findings,” he added.
Hibbett Sports is constantly updating its broad merchandise assortment at each store to offer the latest in product technology, performance and fashion in order to meet the diverse needs of its customer's active lifestyles.
“With QuantiSense, our buyers and planners will have an automated scoring machine that analyzes localized assortments and items, store by store, across a number of performance areas,” said Becky Jones, SVP of Merchandising, Marketing and Logistics for Hibbett Sports. “These new capabilities will provide the knowledge required to improve pre-season plans and in-season adjustments, ultimately driving higher sales, margins and inventory productivity,” she continued.
“We are looking forward to working with the team at Hibbett to provide a solid foundation for all their business intelligence needs across the enterprise – now and as they continue to grow,” said Jeff Buck, CEO, QuantiSense.
