Leading consumer-products companies and forward-looking retailers understand the concrete benefits of collaborative data sharing and business processes and have turned to RSi to help turn daily downstream data into actionable intelligence.

Retail Solutions Inc.(RSi), a global provider of cloud-based, Big Data analytics and real-time intelligence for the consumer-products industry, today announced its strong presence at the upcoming Consumer Goods Business & Technology Leadership Conference, Oct. 28-31 at the Grand Floridian in Orlando, Florida. As a platinum sponsor, RSi will host the event's welcome reception and the Downstream Data share group meeting on Oct. 29, an interactive and open breakout session where the industry's top CPG executives meet and collaborate on industry issues.

Designed for senior executives in business and IT roles, the Consumer Goods Business & Technology Conference provides a leadership forum for networking with peers, sharing ideas and experiences and analyzing industry trends. Event attendees will be among the first to hear analysis and takeaways from the Shared Data Strategy Report, a benchmark study conducted jointly by CGT and RIS News which outlines the efficiencies, improvements and roadblocks across the retail and consumer goods collaborative business and IT environments.

The 2013 Shared Data Strategy Report findings show retailers and suppliers are reaping significant returns from controlling out-of-stocks, managing inventory and forecasting and replenishment processes through collaborative efforts. More retailers are sharing data with their suppliers and getting more sophisticated in how they use the shared data within their organization moving beyond the supply chain into other departments such as sales, marketing and IT. RSi is on the front lines of this data sharing movement. Attendees will hear first-hand how Safeway and Kraft Foods have benefited by extending data sharing into retailer collaboration models with RSi, the subject of a CGT webinar held on Oct. 15.

RSi customer, Hasbro will be a featured speaker on the topic of data sharing, presenting "Collaborative Data & Insights," on Oct. 30 and 1:35 p.m. Adam Winzens, replenishment analyst at Hasbro will share with attendees how to gain substantial insight into consumer demand and succeed at the shelf by deploying downstream data initiatives that encourage manufacturer and retailer to collaborate and the business benefits that can be achieved.

"Leading consumer-products companies and forward-looking retailers understand the concrete benefits of collaborative data sharing and business processes and have turned to RSi to help turn daily downstream data into actionable intelligence," said Marie Jackson, CMO at RSi. "There is no better industry event to share our knowledge and first-hand experience with senior-level CG executives in business and IT roles who understand the need to continually evolve their businesses."
