Rue 21 selects Epicor to support enterprise-wide reporting, analytics


Nashville, Tenn. -- Epicor Software Corporation announced that teen apparel retailer Rue 21 has selected the Epicor QuantiSense Retail Business Intelligence suite to support enterprise-wide reporting and analytics across merchandising, store operations and digital retail.

rue21 has relied on the Epicor Retail technology suite for years, most recently to help support the company’s extensive growth into new markets and merchandise categories, including a junior plus size division, rue+, launched in 2014.

Now the company is taking advantage of the Epicor Retail suite’s recent expansion to include solutions from business intelligence and analytics vendor QuantiSense, which Epicor acquired in October 2014, to gain a real-time comprehensive view of its business operations.

By combining a wide variety of source data systems, the solution will give rue21 visibility across both digital and retail aspects of its business, giving the retailer key capabilities to address today’s omnichannel retail demands from the supply chain through multichannel points of purchase. The suite will provide rue21 with immediate, “self-serve” flexible reporting and drill-down capabilities to better understand and act on key trends and opportunities.

To support rapid speed to value – going live with its Business Intelligence deployment in 90 days – rue21 will leverage Epicor’s cloud deployment model supported by the fully elastic Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure, including the Amazon Redshift cloud data warehousing solution.

“Epicor’s business intelligence expertise in the specialty apparel market segment and the measurable successes that other QuantiSense users shared made us feel extremely comfortable in selection of the Epicor QuantiSense Retail Business Intelligence suite. The speed and low-risk nature of the cloud deployment model made the value proposition even more compelling,” said Judy Kucinski, VP of strategic merchandising, Rue 21.
