Category managers – we hear you. The last few months have been a whirlwind of change in grocery retail, and you’re scrambling to understand how best to cater for shopper preferences in store. The bad news: using excel spreadsheets to review previous sales data and traditional metrics will not accurately address your shopper needs now and post COVID, and will result in lost sales.
The good news? There are methods and solutions that can identify shopper behaviour and calculate the optimum assortment faster and more accurately than ever before, so you can easily rationalize assortments and make your supply chain much more efficient.
