How PetSmart continues to see value in mobile BI software
Mobile BI apps may have lost some of their luster from earlier years, but PetSmart, for one, continues to find real business value in apps for their managers and executives. Who needs offices when, thanks in large part to the maturity of mobile business intelligence applications, insights can be delivered to managers wherever they find themselves? That was a realization that PetSmart Inc. recently arrived at for its main distribution center. The international pet supply store has been using mobile BI apps since 2010. During that time, the company has deployed nearly 20 different apps for everything from executive reporting to supply chain monitoring.
