For over 17 years, Ugam has worked with major U.S. based retailers and manufacturers to solve a host of marketing and merchandising problems using advanced analytics.

The company has been working with several local retailers over the last year on pricing, product and marketing decisions. In fact, Ugam’s recently published report, Australia Holiday Season Retail Insights 2016: Toys, also points to the importance of offering what shoppers want at the right price.
Ugam’s expanded presence in the Australian market comes at a key time when the local retail sector is facing significant pressure from international players.
Sunil Mirani, CEO, Ugam said, “The Australian retail market is demonstrating tremendous change and dynamism. It is evident in changing shopper behavior, and the recent and likely entry of competitors like Alibaba and Amazon. In this challenging environment, it will be pertinent for retailers and manufacturers to operationalize analytics-driven decisions to remain competitive and more effectively meet the needs of shopper. Ugam will be hiring some of the brightest Australian talent; which combined with our domain and analytics expertise will help propel local companies in their journey to success.”
