Retalon and Thinkmax bring AI to Canada’s top retailers

Retalon announces partnership with Thinkmax to accelerate digital transformation for retailers through AI-driven advanced analytics and unified commerce platforms.

Toronto, October 10, 2022 - Retalon, an award-winning provider of AI and predictive analytics has joined efforts with Thinkmax Consulting Inc. to implement leading-edge technologies for major retailers in Canada who are taking steps to undergo deep digital transformations.

Working in collaboration with Thinkmax, Retalon will play a key role for retailers by delivering its advanced analytics and AI solutions for their ERP environments through Microsoft Dynamics 365. This will allow retailers to quickly deploy Retalon’s advanced AI-driven analytics solutions for planning, inventory, lifecycle pricing, and much more at the click of a button.

At the same time, Thinkmax, a sought-after business strategy and information technology consulting firm, will use its expertise to guide these retailers to unified commerce solutions that streamline their business processes, integrate digital experiences, and accelerate their digital transformations–with the end goal of bringing data together across each level of retailer business in ways that transform them to operate more efficiently and effectively.  

Leading retailers are reimagining their businesses in the digital age and seeking modern digital technologies to create new — or modify existing — business processes, culture, and customer experiences that meet changing business and market requirements. In fact, digitally savvy retail businesses recognize that success depends on how quickly they gain and use insights from their data, how accurately they can predict consumer behavior, and the speed with which they can make in-demand products available. Strong digital transformation strategies and AI-driven analytics solutions will help them accomplish this and stay ahead of the curve.
