Data Sharing: Takes Two to Tango

07/07/2014
Data sharing is not a one-way street — both manufacturers and retailers need to be onboard for true benefits to be realized. By sharing data with suppliers, retailers gain substantial insight into consumer demand and are better able to succeed at the shelf.
 
At the inaugural Retail & Consumer Goods Analytics Summit, Kirsten Curtis, VP, supply chain planning, Safeway will present a downstream data initiative where both trading partners "get it." At the "Data Sharing is Not a One-Way Street" general session, Curtis will discuss a case study where the manufacturer and retailer are collaborating around replenishment strategies to achieve substantial benefits.
 
Kirsten Curtis runs the forecasting and inventory optimization teams at the grocer. Before coming to Safeway, Kirsten worked in marketing, consulting, and manufacturing. She has a broad experience in big data sharing and visualization, demand planning, forecasting, contract negotiation, supplier selection, and outsourcing, as well as direct experience with project management and industrial engineering.
 
The inaugural the Retail & Consumer Goods Analytics Summit event will be held September 11-12, 2014 at the W Hotel in San Diego, California. The conference will feature keynotes from retail and consumer goods leaders, peer-to-peer exchanges and relationship building.
