Hormel Foods investigated several solutions before deciding on Interactive EdgeÂs XP3 Suite based on its ease of use and ability to quickly convert multiple data sources into actionable insights. XP3 Suite will provide Hormel Foods with the ability to analyze data much more efficiently, along with improving their response time to retailer requests.
