Drive with data to improve negotiation
Faced with unprecedented market pressures, retail companies now need a better way to do business.
What’s impacting the consumer goods market? National brands are hitting back at private label with price competition and aggressive marketing. Hard discounters Aldi and Lidl are driving costs out of the supply chain to keep their prices consistently low. Disruptive direct-to-consumer startups like Brandless and Public Goods are wooing consumers with private label goods that save them time and money. Plus, Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods has pressured grocers around the world to speed up their rollout of exceptional omnichannel offerings.
What’s worse is that retailers lack the depth of information they need to contend with such intense, unrelenting industry upheaval. They have had difficulties trying to analyze their retail business data to proactively identify – and solve – issues with their business processes.
That is, until now. Last fall, retail companies gained access to a new, robust business intelligence solution with deeper data insights than ever before. Trace One Insight helps retailers and suppliers differentiate their companies through private label data and proactive analytics, so they collaborate better internally and across their supply chain to serve shoppers better.
How data helps multiple retail functions
To help retail teams succeed, Trace One Insight was designed with diverse retail needs in mind. That’s why this multifunctional solution can be used by everyone from executives in C-suite offices to quality managers on a factory floor. The solution makes retail processes smoother by giving stakeholders validated data and high-level dashboards they can use every day.
While decision makers often feel overwhelmed like they’re drowning in data, Trace One Insight keeps things simple, clear and actionable. That way decision makers across all functions can align their efforts with corporate, team and individual goals to improve performance across their company. For example:
Keeping up with consumer values

As retail evolves, let data drive your decisions
Instead of a technical business intelligence platform, Trace One Insight is a solution that includes deep market expertise from in-house retail consultants who understand retailers’ and suppliers’ needs, including product quality, packaging and speed to market. Trace One Insights’ off-the-shelf dashboards are ready to use, efficient and user friendly, so users can start to access relevant data insights right away. As the retail sector faces tumultuous changes over the next few years, consider using data to differentiate your business, make wise decisions faster, collaborate better with supply chain partners and gain a competitive edge.
Last year, Halloween delivered £325m in sales in the UK and $6.9 billion in sales in the US – retailers and suppliers will be keen to exploit the period’s growing potential this month. There are a number of important steps that retailers and manufacturers can take during Halloween to innovate in private label products, engage with consumers, and make the most of this multi-million pound opportunity.
