Leaders Bring Powerful Change in Retailing Through Analytics; Alteryx Listed as a Premier Sponsor of CROSSMARK Center for Collaboration
Irvine, Calif. – July 09, 2014 – Alteryx, the leader in data blending and advanced analytics, announced today that it is helping drive transformation in retail with CROSSMARK, a leading sales and marketing services company. By bringing analytic leadership to the consumer goods and retail industries, Alteryx allows for advanced analytic decision making in minutes, not weeks, like traditional approaches to retail. Alteryx also announced that it is a premier sponsor of the CROSSMARK Center for Collaboration, a cutting-edge facility in Bentonville, AR opening July 10, 2014, that is a collaborative and innovative environment steps away from Walmart’s Home Office. The center is an exciting and convenient new hub for Walmart, Sam’s Club and its suppliers to collaboratively immerse themselves in business opportunities, to develop innovative ideas and to plan for the future, including using analytic tools powered by Alteryx.
“Alteryx and CROSSMARK are driving an analytics transformation in retail. More than ever, consumer goods companies face increasing amounts of data,” said Dean Stoecker, CEO of Alteryx. “Insights based on this data can lead to more targeted product development, promotions and marketing. Together, we are making it a reality, and empowering data analysts with the ability to generate extreme business value through analytics.”
Leveraging the Alteryx platform, CROSSMARK has been able to ingest, blend and digest data from any source without complex, time-consuming IT engineering efforts and within a forward-thinking analytic platform.
“Our data analysts often describe Alteryx as a flashlight - shining light on sides of the issue we could not see before - let alone even approach to-date,” said Alex Siskos, Vice President of Insights at CROSSMARK. “The chemistry with Alteryx is off-the-charts, and I’m excited to see what is ahead as CROSSMARK and Alteryx explore the analytic evolution of some of our more challenging and data-heavy business questions.”
As a premier sponsor of the CROSSMARK Center for Collaboration, Alteryx will provide the center with its software platform in an easy-to-use intuitive workflow for data blending and advanced analytics that allow data analysts at CROSSMARK and its consumer goods clients to gain deeper insights in hours, not the weeks typical of traditional approaches.
