Shoppers are demanding more choice and richer content at all times, on any device. To meet demand, retailers must deliver more personalized content, faster and across all channels. SAP Customer Activity Repository aims to empower retailers with consumer insights by consolidating customer interactions from stores, online and mobile channels with insight from social media feedback such as Twitter or Facebook posts. The information shall act as the basis for a "single source of truth" to help retailers optimize branding, marketing, promotions, pricing, merchandising, inventory management processes and more.

"As consumers expand their shopping experiences across multiple purchase channels, retailers have an opportunity to engage more fully and provide more personal interactions," said Lori Mitchell-Keller, global head, Industry Business Unit Retail, SAP. "This is a daunting task, requiring access to multiple databases and tools. With SAP Customer Activity Repository, retailers will have access to powerful consumer insights, be able to centralize critical business data and run reports instantly, and make better business decisions that support both sales and the customer experience."

SAP HANA helps businesses make smarter, faster decisions through real-time analysis and reporting combined with dramatically accelerated business processes. As the backbone of SAP Customer Activity Repository, it is intended to deliver lightning-fast insight at a user-determined level of detail, helping eliminate the time needed to handle multiple data transactions in the point-of-sale (POS) transaction log, other sales channels and reporting systems.
