Washington, D.C. (Vocus) June 29, 2010
Applied Predictive Technologies, Inc. (APT), the leading provider of Test & Learn Management Systems for CP Manufacturers and Retailers, today announced that it will host a webinar titled “Thinking Inside the Basket: Making More Informed SKU Rationalization Decisions” on Wednesday, July 14th, 2010 at 2:00 PM EDT.
The webinar is the ninth in APT’s 2010 Webinar Series for Retail and CPG executives this year.
It will feature Sarvath Amjed Jones, Senior Financial Analyst of Wawa and Patrick O’Reilly, President and Chief Operating Officer of APT; the webinar will be moderated by Tammy Mastroberte, Executive Editor of Convenience Store News Magazine.
SKU Rationalization is a hot topic in retail today as retailers strive to be more consumer-centric with localized assortments. How many different brands of a given product do you really need to stock on shelves? How much more valuable is one brand compared to another? Will an Aquafina customer switch to Poland Springs if you're out of stock? How do those tendencies change across customer segments? SKU Rationalization is a complex balancing act with two competing goals: Offer an assortment that covers all of a customer’s wants; Stock only products that offer high turnover and profitability.
Join Wawa, Convenience Store News Magazine, Progressive Grocer and APT to learn how leading convenience store chains and grocers are using basket-level analytics to glean actionable insights and make smarter SKU rationalization and assortment planning decisions.
