MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- RSi (Retail Solutions Inc.), the leading technology company enabling CPG manufacturers and retailers to drive greater profitability, today announced that it is unveiling IRIS the world's #1 on-shelf availability (OSA) platform during the annual Trading Partner Alliance (TPA) Supply Chain Conference in Orlando, Fla.
Retailers and suppliers have long been in search of "The Perfect Shelf": A shelf that contains the exact product a consumer wants, in the right store, at the right time. However, achieving the correct OSA and promotion allocation quantities, while ensuring efficient inventory, is a daunting task. The newly expanded IRIS platform not only ensures the perfect shelf for CPG companies and retailers, but a profitable one, too.
"IRIS allows retailers and CPGs to rule the shelf by establishing a baseline for OSA measurement, identifying the root causes of OSA roadblocks to correct any issues, and preventing those issues from happening again," said Kirk W. Wheeler, SVP of Global Sales and Marketing for RSi. "The industry-leading IRIS OSA platform clearly demonstrates how RSi is empowering CPG companies and retailers to collaborate in new ways so they can optimize supply chains, drive shopper satisfaction, and generate profitable results."
With more installs than any other OSA platform available, IRIS delivers over 100k OSA alerts daily and has captured more than $1B in identified potential recaptured sales for its users empowering them to optimize their market positions in a globally challenging retail landscape. The newly expanded IRIS platform includes the following key modules:
- Measure Tracks OSA at the most granular level (store/product/day), with results that can be aggregated to provide precise assessments of OSA performance to establish a baseline.
- Correct Provides alerts when specific circumstances occur that indicate an imperfect shelf. These alerts are immediately delivered to the appropriate individual so that action may be taken to correct the situation and increase OSA performance.
- Prevent Takes advantage of business intelligence data analytics and machine learning technologies to avoid problems on the shelf before they occur.
RSi invites TPA participants to breakfast on Tuesday, April 17th 7:00 am 8:00 am, and to stop by booth #12 to test their OSA IQ and see if they have what it takes to rule the shelf (plus earn some cool prizes).
