"Market6 continues to be amongst the leaders in the consumer goods industry in the field of demand driven analytics and has proven their ability to help some of the largest consumer goods companies and grocers in the US today collaborate more effectively to deliver measurable KPI improvements," says Kara Romanow, Executive Editor, CGT.

Kroger and more than 470 of their suppliers use Market6's collaborative analytics platform, built on Kroger's own daily sales, inventory and merchandising data and delivered as Software as a Service, to make better supply chain decisions, reduced supply chain inefficiency and drive higher sales and margins. With next day visibility into sales, inventory and more for every product in every store every day, Kroger's suppliers have new insight to fix problems fast enough to impact the business and improve results. Examples: 

  • Leading butter manufacturer reduced out of stocks from 19% to 10% and lowered post promotion inventory levels by 50% using daily store and warehouse level inventory and forecast demand data to improve shipments.
  • A value added salad manufacturer reduced by two days the time required to get a their products onto shelves, cutting shrink by 30% and growing sales by 5%.
  • Leading yogurt brand eliminated more than $180,000 in excess orders during a single promotional event through better store level inventory tracking, demand forecasting and supply chain planning.

CGT's Readers' Choice 2014 Survey benchmark issue draws on feedback from consumer goods executives to rank service and solution providers in 12 categories, including Supply Chain Execution, New Product Development, Social Media, and Mobility. Their Editors' Pick recognizes companies whose exceptional impact on the industry transcends these category definitions and warrants special focus and congratulations.
