Teradata and SeeCommerce partner to help companies reduce out-of-stocks, increase profits and retain customers

This combined solution provides companies with early notification of performance issues along with root-cause data

DAYTON, Ohio and PALO ALTO, Calif., 10/13/2004 - Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), and SeeCommerce, a leading provider of out-of-stock performance management solutions, today announced a partnership that enables companies to identify and correct impending performance problems in their supply networks before they result in out-of-stock conditions.

SeeCommerce SeeChain software monitors key supply-chain metrics, including order changes, inventory levels, forecast accuracy and delivery performance, across the massive amounts of detailed, transaction, product, stock-keeping-unit (SKU) and store-level data contained in a Teradata® Warehouse. The integration of SeeChain and Teradata's data warehouse and high-performance database technology enables customers to continuously manage the overall performance of their supply chain. This combined solution provides companies with early notification of performance issues along with root-cause data, so problems can be addressed before retail outlets are affected.

"The SeeCommerce solution leverages the power of Teradata to provide the detailed scalable analysis our customers need to reduce out-of-stocks at the SKU and store level," said Rob Berman, vice president of retail for Teradata. "As a result, our joint customers will gain increased visibility and performance for retail in-stock levels and inventory availability."

Teradata and SeeCommerce developed this partnership based on mutual retail client engagements. The companies are working together with a number of blue-chip customers to deliver supply-chain performance management solutions that monitor key metrics and identity problems early across massive stores of detailed transaction, product and store-level data.

"This strategic partnership with Teradata is a landmark development for our mutual customers," said Parviz Hooman, senior vice president of research and development for SeeCommerce. "The ability of SeeChain software to identify impending supply-chain problems down to the SKU level within massive Teradata Warehouse installations promises to deliver unprecedented efficiency gains for retailers and their suppliers."

The unmatched power, capacity and speed of the Teradata Warehouse make it the best choice for the SeeCommerce SeeChain requirement to query in real time against mountains of retail data, right down to the SKU level. SeeCommerce's unique approach for identifying and correcting impending supply-chain problems before they impact business performance enables companies to gain greater strategic value from a Teradata data warehouse.
