QUEZON CITY, Philippines, February 2, 2011 - Manthan Systems, Inc., a leading producer of retail analytics
and performance management solutions, today announced that Robinsons Retail
Group, one of the largest retailers in the Philippines, has selected its
retail analytics product, ARC Supplier Portal & Analytics for their Robinsons
