Retail Solutions Inc., the leading solution provider helping consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies create value from operational downstream data, today announced that Beiersdorf North America, a subsidiary of Beiersdorf AG, has selected its applications to leverage downstream data across retailers in the drug channel.
“We chose Retail Solutions because they have a good understanding of how to turn customer specific data into actionable and value-creating insights” said Bill Graham, Vice-President of Sales, Beiersdorf North America. “Beiersdorf has a number of years experience working with downstream data and Retail Solutions displayed all the competencies we were looking for: a user-friendly solution, a clear understanding of the industry’s best practices, the support model to help implement those best practices in our organization and importantly, the right value-centric approach.”
Beiersdorf and Retail Solutions jointly identified the core priorities of the project. These priorities include:
- Reducing out-of-stocks while keeping inventory levels under tight control
- Increasing forecasting accuracy down to the store level and driving an effective shipment allocation strategy to improve promotional effectiveness (ensuring right quantities in right stores)
