Mi9 Retail, the provider of enterprise retail merchandising, business intelligence and store operations software, announced that Century 21 Department Store has selected Mi9 Retail to replace its current systems.

Century 21 found the superior technology, rapid implementation, single-product integration and low support requirements of Mi9 Retail extremely competitive in terms of total cost of ownership.

Century 21, well known for its exceptional offering of designer merchandise at discount prices, was in need of a merchandising and analytics system that would streamline business operations. Century 21 identified Mi9 Merchant as the perfect solution that delivers the functionality and actionable analysis to enable its teams to work more efficiently and effectively. Mi9 Merchant is the only completely-integrated merchandising and business intelligence system specifically designed to address the high transaction processing needs of retailing combined with expert decision-making tools.

In addition, the advanced architectural framework of Mi9 Merchant will provide Century 21 with seamless integration across back-end systems and quicker implementation for faster time to value.

"We selected Mi9 Retail as our retail technology solution partner following an extensive evaluation of leading merchandising systems to find the right business partner. We are impressed by Mi9 Retail's modern technology, customer references, comprehensive functionality and ease of integration with our external systems. The functionality is the best we have seen on the market and is more advanced than any vendor we have reviewed," said Harry Roberts, Chief Information Officer, Century 21.
