Leveraging Real-Time Consumer Intelligence

Consumers are dynamically changing how they shop and what they need, and the current retail environment illustrates the speed and magnitude with which consumer behavior can change.

We’re developing new tools, data and analytical ways of working that allow us to work even closer with our retail partners to unlock growth across the entire customer journey.

We’re focusing these new capabilities to understand consumer behaviors in an omnichannel environment,  including which behaviors have rebounded back to pre-pandemic, which have been rebooted to an adjusted version of pre-pandemic and which have been completely reinvented due to pandemic experiences.
