Mountain View, Calif. (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
Retail Solutions Inc. (RSi), a global provider of cloud-based, Big Data analytics and real-time intelligence for the consumer-products industry, has been named one of the top three vendors for demand data analytics by the readers' of Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) magazine, the manufacturing industry's leading authority on business performance enabled by technology.
For the 14th year, CGT’s readers recorded their votes for the consumer goods industry’s preferred solution and service providers in 12 categories, which reflect the vast landscape of IT investment opportunities available today. The lists are determined by feedback from 185 executives that work for consumer-goods companies of all sizes. The results, and accompanying commentary from industry experts and analysts, guide business and IT decision makers in their quest to find the technology/service providers that are best suited to deliver a competitive edge in today’s changing market.
"RSi has clearly earned this well-deserved ranking through its relentless dedication to creating joint value at every turn," said Albert Guffanti, Publisher of CGT Magazine. "I'm thrilled to see CGT's readers have chosen to recognize a best-in-class company that truly understands the bigger picture and is invested in fostering the greater good of the community."
RSi moves up a spot from its 2013 ranking, closing in on syndicated data providers Nielsen and IRI and edging out Oracle for a top three position. Unlike the syndicated data providers in the category, RSi provides downstream data and advanced analytics daily, delivered via its cloud-based platform. As the survey points out, RSi has taken demand signal repository (DSR) market share due to line-of-business leaders favoring cloud-based solutions for demand data and RSI being one of the first solution providers to take advantage of the cloud to drive differentiation.
"CGT and its readers provide an excellent barometer for us to gauge our market position and evaluate our product strategy," said Marie Jackson, CMO of RSi. "We are delighted to be a top provider in our category and we look forward to continuing to win market share and advance the adoption of the RSi data platform as a must-have technology for all consumer-goods companies."
