42 is an end-to-end analytics stack for retailers & brands!

Whether it's store managers running a/b tests on new product placement, CEOs looking at their global store performance, or merchandisers planning the next season, our platform enables retailers and brands to get instant visibility in their business.

The majority of retailers don't have the in-house expertise to spin up data infrastructure. Instead, they piece together reports in excel on a daily basis. This works fine for small eCommerce brands, but not for retailers in the $100m-$5bn range. That's where we come in.

We offer our customers:
  • Retail-specific dashboard: best-practice metrics / visuals are built-in & customizable
  • No integration: we make their data & systems work with our platform 
  • Hosted infrastructure: we host the pipelines & data warehouse

We also have a special business model for retailers which we're happy to share with
you during the interview ;)
