Manthan Systems Teams with Sprouts to Provide Enterprise-wide Reporting and Analytics

Manthan Systems, the global leader of business intelligence (BI) software for
retailers, today announced that Sprouts Farmers Markets has selected Manthan’s industry-
leading ARC platform for enterprise-wide reporting and analytics. Currently operating 148
retail stores across eight states, Sprouts Farmers Markets has become synonymous with
fresh produce, great prices and old-fashioned customer service.

Joining over 65 retailers who rely on Manthan Systems, Sprouts Farmers Market chose
Manthan’s ARC applications as its business intelligence standard. Sprouts plans to use
Manthan Systems’ dynamic analytical views and at-a-glance dashboards for greater insights
into product sales, store operations, labor, task management, inventory optimization and
merchandising. Manthan Systems’ unique self- training guided analytics and at-a-glance
dashboards will provide actionable information, enabling Sprouts personnel to immediately
see key business opportunities, easily identify trends, and greatly enhance the
decision-making process.

“Manthan Systems’ proven experience in retail business analytics aligns with our
vision of arming our team with role-based, mobile and easy to consume information. With
their U.S.-led Global Operations and spirit of partnership, they were the perfect choice
for us,” said Steve Black, Chief Information Officer with Sprouts Farmers Market. “With
our exploding growth over the last couple of years, the top requirement that recently came
out of our technology steering committee was a robust BI tool. Our entire team is thrilled
to get this project live and looking forward to focusing primarily on the reaction to the
data instead of gathering data.”

“We are truly honored that Sprouts Farmers Market selected Manthan Systems to support
their rapid growth and enterprise data warehouse needs,” said Peter J. Charness, Manthan
Systems’ President. “Manthan Systems’ BI platform has the scalability and flexibility to
analyze large volumes of transactional data and provide retailers with valuable insights
