MicroStrategy Inc., McLean, VA, said this week that Ace Hardware Corp. selected the company as its enterprise-wide business intelligence software solution.
Ace Hardware, Oak Brook, IL, is the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the industry, with more than 4,800 stores worldwide. The company plans to deploy MicroStrategy to more than 6,400 users enterprise-wide.
Ace Hardware has expanded its deployment of the MicroStrategy Business Intelligence Platform for enterprise-wide reporting and analysis on marketing initiatives, retail pricing, category management, merchandising, inventory, wholesale pricing and customer loyalty programs like Helpful Hardware Club.
“We decided to standardize on MicroStrategy enterprise-wide because we recognized the importance of having a single integrated platform that has the scalability to grow with us as our needs change,” said Diane Flynn, technology business manager at Ace Hardware.
