MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Retail Solutions Inc. ("RSi"), global leader of POS data and analytics for retail execution, announced yesterday the winners of the 2017 RSi Awards for Excellence. The annual awards program recognizes key supplier teams based on their achievements with data analytics in the retail execution space. The award winners were supplier teams from across the globe working directly with their respective retail leaders at Ahold Delhaize, Albertsons, Boots UK, dm-drogerie markt, Pingo Doce, Raia Drogasil, Target, and Walgreens.
"RSi powers retail visibility, planning, and execution by being a trusted partner in enabling and driving collaboration between retailers and their CPG trading partners," said Stuart Careford, Senior Vice President of Customer Success at RSi. "This awards program underscores these RSi values and recognizes those in the field that have produced outstanding results."
The RSi Awards for Excellence provides recognition to those on the forefront of collaboration and their joint efforts of bringing together retailers and suppliers around the globe. This year's winners accepted their awards at the RSi Summit 2017 in Dallas, during the Awards for Excellence dinner celebration. Award winners on hand included supplier teams from Colgate-Palmolive, DanoneWave, Kellogg Company, Keurig Green Mountain, Kraft Heinz Company, L'Oréal, Revlon, Inc., Wrigley Company, and Unilever.
The grand prize winner was awarded to a supplier team for setting a new precedent in retailer-supplier collaboration and creating best practice processes that benefited both retailer and supplier alike. This collaboration will have a direct influence on how the retailer addresses this business case moving forward. This year the award went to Revlon, Inc. for partnering with Walgreens on the Pareto Analysis Collaborative Business Practice which leverages RSi tools including the Pareto Analysis template.
"We are honored to be recognized with our peers for this type of work," said Bill Ferry of Revlon, Inc. "Besides improved In-stocks during an ad week, the depth of this analysis has also helped build credibility with our retail partner. The analysis has been shared at many levels of Supply Chain and Category Management," added Ferry.
"The awards process is an extensive process and it's exciting to see these extraordinary accomplishments. We are already looking forward to next year's submissions," said Bert Clement, CEO of RSi. "RSi understands data and how to drive insights to support collaborative business processes that result in joint retailer and CPG value creation. Our Awards for Excellence celebrates this central foundation," added Clement.
Starting in January 2018, RSi will start accepting submissions and nominations for next year's Awards for Excellence giving all retail and CPG partners the opportunity to showcase their company's efforts surrounding effective uses of retailer data and analysis.
