Retailers will gain insights into techniques, technology, and best practices that will help in marketing, merchandising and supply chain while CG companies will gain access to content focused on improving sales and marketing, new product development, and supply chain.
RSi customer Kristen Curtis, Vice President of Supply Chain Planning at Safeway will present “Making Data Sharing Work: A Retailer Perspective,” where she will share insights on how the company has expanded its data-sharing programs by working collaboratively with suppliers and leveraging data with the help from RSi to achieve significant financial benefit.
