“Exceedra has been a leader in developing Retail Execution capabilities, efficiently prioritizing which stores to visit when and what activities to address on the call”
PROMOTION OPTIMIZATION INSTITUTE (POI)
Two years after the global COVID-19 pandemic, the significantly changed consumer landscape has yet to return to a “pre-COVID” normal. Supply chain issues, labor shortages, and an increase in online shopping and experience expectations continue to challenge in-store execution. “We recognize the future of retail execution will be about more than just in-store, but also how interactions with consumers are executed across all channels.”
The Promotion Optimization Institute (POI) research team evaluated 15 leading vendors to help manufacturers and retail partners understand technology and related service options that can help them improve promotional outcomes and drive profitable growth.
Exceedra received a "best-in-class" distinction for the following categories:
- Analytical Insights: Ability to process data from multiple sources to deliver directional guidance
Coaching: Provides formalized feedback loops to address the human element
- Connected Enterprise: Seamless two-way data flow between retail execution solution and enterprise applications (sales, marketing, supply chain, finance, HR) enabling visibility, agility, and insights-driven decisions across the enterprise
- Predictive AI/ML: Uses Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning to predict or prescribe best routes, pricing, planograms, store or distributor orders, van loads, and more
- Retail Merchandising: Fully enables this vital function with all necessary information and guidance to efficiently execute tasks
