Mountain View, Calif. (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
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 vendors for demand data analytics and retail execution by the readers' of Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) magazine, the manufacturing industry's leading authority on business performance enabled by technology. RSi enters both categories with distinction, being named the SMB Market Leader for retail execution and customer satisfaction leader for demand data analytics.
For the 15th year, CGT’s readers recorded their votes for the consumer goods industry’s preferred solution and service providers in 13 categories, which reflect the vast landscape of IT investment opportunities available today. The lists are determined by feedback from 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 and service providers that are best suited to deliver a competitive edge in today’s changing market.
"CGT and its readers provide an excellent barometer for us to gauge our market position, to evaluate our product strategy and to ensure our customer satisfaction levels are high," said Marie Jackson, CMO of RSi. "We are delighted to be a top provider in two categories 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 and their retailer partners."
This is the fourth consecutive year that RSi has been named a top provider in the demand data analytics category and is proud to be named the customer satisfaction leader. 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, more and more, consumer goods companies are looking for software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions. As one of the first solution providers to take advantage of the cloud to drive differentiation, RSi is a popular choice and continues to take market share away from on-premise solutions.
New to the survey this year is the retail execution category. RSi makes an impressive debut as the SMB Market Leader, recognizing the company that received the highest total score from respondents with revenue equal to or less than $1 billion in a category. By adopting a company-wide, systematic approach to retail execution, RSi’s CPG customers turn downstream data into actionable insights. Every customer team is armed with the tools and best practices necessary to cut out-of-stocks by 25 percent, improve forecasting accuracy by 10 percent, find new efficiencies in promotion design, compliance and execution, and greatly increase new product introduction effectiveness.
