The art of retailer insights is a rapidly increasing influence in a corporate entity as retailers battle for expenditure thinking and analysis which will lead to distinct strategic advantage. The mission of a major grocery retailer is to better understand and serve customers by empowering retailers and their suppliers to decode what millions of transactions reveal about consumers – and use that data to deliver tangible business growth. These insights are used across the organisation to support more informed decisions in marketing and merchandising. Everything is geared around retailers and manufacturers of consumer goods become more familiar with their customers – to understand how to meet their requirements and hence create increase sales. Alex Chruszcz, GM, Customer: Insights, Voice, Pricing, Network Planning with COLES in past two plus years had previously spent four years with ASDA (UK). Alex will share his thinking around insights and related areas with COLES to suppliers
