Two-year renewal enables leading Latin American retailer to continue to craft shopper-centric prices in volatile markets
February 23, 2021 –Cencosud Chile, one of the leading multi-brand retailers in Latin America, recently contracted a two-year renewal of its DemandTec Price Optimization subscription, extending a relationship that originated in 2016.
The global pandemic has created economic and business uncertainty in markets worldwide, and Chile is no exception. Cencosud, which operates multiple retail entities, including supermarkets, home improvement stores, shopping centers, department stores, and financial services locations, was affected by multiple lockdowns of varying severity and duration in Chile. DemandTec and the Cencosud Chile Supermarket Division, which includes the Jumbo and Santa Isabel brands, worked closely together to successfully structure the renewal despite the market turmoil.
“We are pleased to extend our valued relationship with Cencosud Chile, which – like so many DemandTec customers – continues to invest in a long-term, collaborative working partnership with us,” said Cheryl Sullivan, President and General Manager of DemandTec. “We look forward to helping the company drive success with customer-focused prices that engage shoppers while delivering valuable business results.”
Cencosud is one of the largest and most prestigious multi-brand and multi-format retailers in Latin America, with a presence in 5 countries and more than 105 thousand employees. It maintains operations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, and Colombia, through 5 business units: Supermarkets, Home Improvement, Department Stores, Shopping Centers, and Financial Services.
