About Profitect Profitect's Profit Amplification software, a pattern-seeking solution, enables retailers to quickly realize increased revenue and reduced costs across the entire retail supply chain.  Profit Amplification pattern-seeking algorithms can "tell a story" by identifying the root cause in anomalies such as inventory distortion, on-shelf availability, shrink/waste/damage, or process compliance – helping retailers minimize the effort necessary to identify controllable factors that the solution translates into action.  As a result, retailers can move quickly to prevent profit leakage at all levels of the organization, ultimately improving business processes and the top & bottom line.
