January 13, 2014—Mi9 has been selected by CIOReview magazine as one of the 20 Most Promising Retail Technology Companies. “Mi9 Retail has been on our radar for some time now for stirring a revolution in Retail Technology, and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in delivering top-notch technology-driven-solutions” said Harvi Sachar, Publisher & Founder, CIO Review. “Mi9 Retail’s solutions continued to break new ground benefiting its customers around the globe, and we’re excited to have them featured on our top companies list.” Mi9 develops a fully integrated Intelligent Retail System that stretches from the corporate offices to the warehouse, stores, and vendors. The system is composed of:
- Mi9 Merchant, a complete merchandise management system
- Mi9 Business Intelligence, a robust analytics engine and data warehouse completely built into the merchandising system
- Mi9 Store, a comprehensive POS and store management system
- Mi9 Retail Hub, a data delivery system providing real-time data on demand
- Mi9 Foundation, the unique architectural framework and data management solution
A distinguishing feature of the solution suite is that it was developed from the ground up by Mi9 on a Microsoft .NET platform. While other companies have attempted to cobble together solutions from different sources, Mi9 products were developed in-house as a fully integrated system that is updated regularly. “We devote a significant portion of our resources to ongoing development for the benefit of all of our customers,” said CEO Mike Burge. “As a part of our program we ensure that an upgrade path is available for every one of our customers regardless of what version of the software they are running.” Mi9 is profiled in the November issue of CIO Review.
