Delivering on the Product Promise

Consumer companies have a lot of data. The industry is going through a material shift driven by a consumer-centric focus, digital engagement, and changing consumer wants and needs.

Whether implementing an omnichannel go to market, creating product innovation, or maximizing the effectiveness of demand creation activities, the winning consumer products companies generally have one thing in common, they relentlessly focus on maximizing data and insights.

An opportunity to create a competitive advantage exists for brands ready to address this challenge:

  • Almost 70% of consumer companies indicate that they have started to transition their organization to be a data-driven culture.*
  • But only 27% of consumer companies indicate that this transition has been successful.*
  • Companies that enable their organizations to leverage data seamlessly to make decisions will drive growth through competitive advantage.

What if Brands could easily and automatically:

  • Uncover key trends early that can impact product innovation and go-to-market effectiveness.
  • Maximize consumer marketing investment with a robust understanding and actionable insights throughout the customer journey.
  • Integrate data and insights into their procurement and production processes.
  • Develop a complete understanding of business drivers by uncovering data relationships that are material to their results.
