A How To Discussion for Category Managers 
5 Ways You Can Start Using Analytics Today To Make Smarter Price, Promotion, Assortment, Space, and  Trade Dollar Decisions

When it comes to making smart decisions that maximize sales and margin for their products, category managers often rely on their own knowledge of the business, combined with data from internal systems or suppliers. Even then it's often hard to single out the right option or quantify the business impact across dozens or even hundreds of daily pricing, promotion, assortment, space, or related decisions.  

Grocery analytics, like demand forecasts, give category managers a smarter way to analyze situations and make choices. The problem is how to get started using the data and skill set available in most grocery category management teams today. 

This webinar will explain how grocery category managers can begin using analytics immediately to make better decisions, using the data and skills they already have on hand. The discussion will present five specific real world examples of how category managers at leading US grocers are using analytics today to improve their decisions and deliver improved category sales and margins.
