Enterprise-Class Systems for Best-in-Class Retailing

Merchandising is the heart and soul of your business – and ours. KWI’s proprietary technology is as fast, efficient, flexible and intelligent as a merchandising information system can be. The result of collaborative partnerships with leading-edge retailers, our system is based upon a model of continuous improvement that consistently leads to exciting new capabilities … all backed by outstanding service support and availability 24/7/365.

We provide our clients with a true, cloud-based data warehouse performing as a single data dictionary, powerfully informing all modules across the system. Your complete data set is stored forever at the item level, and fully searchable with 23 levels of hierarchy available. More than 500 reports can be scheduled or run on an ad hoc basis, securely but quickly accessed through our internal Google search engine for easy reference.

The right product in the right place at the right time.

For innovative retailers passionate about customer service and relationships,
KWI consistently sharpens the competitive edge.
