providing access to data more quickly and efficiently.
Stores have spent a lot investing in technology such as beacons and heat maps, but the real value is
in connecting with consumers at the right time with the right product. For brands, they have large
amounts of data residing in different systems. This data is dispersed and the systems don't connect,
leading them to resort to combining data in Excel and encountering inaccuracies, and reporting can
take hours and days sometimes. In addition, most business intelligence tools are also not user-friendly
and hard to use, usually requiring IT support. We want to be an easy-to-use tool for retailers to do
everything they need to do without relying on others within their organization, and get the accurate
answers they need in a quick manner.
42 is a data platform made to help retailers save time and better understand their business by
providing access to data more quickly and efficiently. 42 helps merchants, planners, marketers, and
executives easily pull reports for cross-channel POS, inventory, margin, year-over-year performance,
and top sellers by category in one place. We help teams from The Frye Company, AllSaints, and
Rebecca Minkoff save 8-10 hrs a week on reporting and make better data-driven decisions.
42 uses in-memory database technology to process data in seconds instead of hours. By consolidating
all of the disparate data sources that a retailer has and cleaning that data, they are given access to all
of their information in a clean and easy way. The dashboard provides near real-time access to data
that's personalized to every user and retail role, rather than the static Excel files sent once every
Monday morning. 42 provides cross-organization visibility that allows for a more accurate
understanding of what's really driving the business.
