"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.

Their Editors' Pick recognizes companies whose exceptional impact on the industry transcends these category definitions and warrants special focus and congratulations.
