Maximal Innovative Intelligence and TopINET are partnering to offer a decision support solution for retail chain management. Maximal will integrate Max, its data analysis tool, with TopDiag, TopINET’s business intelligence (BI) solution. This integrated solution will let companies make decisions at the local store level rather than at company headquarters. Managers will be able to analyze revenue specific to their store for different departments, product categories, and products. The integrated solution will be available in November. “The integrated solution featuring Maximal and TopINET technologies is an excellent illustration of the comprehensive solutions that enable companies to make the most of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services,” said Rochelle Coleman, SQL Server 2000’s Canadian marketing manager.
