As an Epicor Software customer leveraging Epicor Retail solutions for Store (POS), Merchandising, and Sales Audit successfully in the past, MGM incorporated the Epicor Retail Business Intelligence solution into its daily operations for greater control over the volume and velocity of data, and for distillation of valuable insights for improved decision-making. Everyone from store associates to senior vice presidents and vendors are deriving actionable insights from the data made available by BI to shape business decisions and improve outcomes.
"We congratulate Steve and MGM Resorts on being named a SuperNova award finalist among a very prestigious group of leading organizations," said Noel Goggin, executive vice president and general manager for the Retail Solutions Business of Epicor Software. "While many companies put BI tools in hands of only a few 'power' users, MGM Resorts has democratized BI across the enterprise by building out a company-wide self-service BI infrastructure, and as a result, has been able to derive exceptional value."
"Since the program's inception, the quality of applicants for the SuperNova Award have increased ten- fold. Being named a Finalist is already a great honor and we look forward to seeing who wins the night of the SuperNova Awards," said Constellation Research, Inc. Principal Analyst and Founder R. Ray Wang.
