Management One said on Friday that it has formed a new strategic partnership with Ignite Technologies and its RMSA retail service.

The partnership offers Ignite’s RMSA customers the opportunity to onboard to Management One’s Retail Orbit platform, which provides advanced data analytics and planning capabilities, while also leveraging Management One’s retail consulting services. Ignite’s RMSA analysts will join the company and become Management One affiliates.

Both companies have also agreed to work together to provide additional value to retailers with a focus on Ignite’s recently announced e-commerce and digital engagement suite of enterprise software solutions, which aims to help companies optimize their customers’ digital journey. The suite includes seven solutions: multichannel customer service, news and market insight digests for customers, interactive digital catalogs, website performance optimizer, website customer feedback, back-in-stock notifications, and intelligent search and recommendations.

“We are delighted to welcome RMSA’s customers and team to the Management One community,” said Mike Alic, president of Management One. “As the leader in delivering merchandise planning and business insights for independent retailers, we are confident we can help RMSA customers move their businesses forward in these challenging times.  We are also excited by the opportunity to add even more value to the expanded Management One customer base by partnering with Ignite to educate our customers on the power of Ignite’s new e-commerce and digital engagement suite to accelerate their success in doing business digitally.”

“Management One’s predictive analytics and merchandise planning platform is a hub for indispensable information for retailers,” added Davin Cushman, CEO of Ignite Technologies. “The partnership is a fantastic opportunity for both Ignite RMSA customers and the entire Management One customer base. We’re pleased to partner with the recognized retail experts at Management One to transition RMSA customers onto the Retail ORBIT platform, and we believe the partnership is indicative of Ignite’s long-standing commitment to 100% customer success.”
