MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Feb. 10, 2016 - PRLog -- Global retail analytics leader, Retail Solutions Inc. (RSi), today announced Cédric Guyot, Chief Strategy Officer for RSi, will be a guest speaker at the annual Trading Partner Alliance (TPA) Supply Chain Conference.  This event brings together retailer and manufacturer supply chain executives and their service partners to discuss industry issues while exploring new strategy options and technology.  The conference is taking place February 22nd-24th, 2016 at the New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Guyot, Lisa VanDreumel, Demand and Supply Planning Manager at Walgreens, Bill Homan, Continuous Improvement Manager at Ahold USA, and Peter Anthony, Continuous Improvement Manager at Ahold USA, will present “The Evolution of Collaboration - From Experimentation to Business-as-Usual” on Tuesday, February 23rd at 1:45 p.m. CST. The session is designed to explore real-life retailer-manufacturer collaboration models that work today, both in the US and internationally, for all types of companies – large and small, branded and private label, retailers and suppliers.  Attendees will leave this session with a wide range of actionable opportunities – to discuss them with their trading partners and start their journey towards scalable, collaboration value.

The TPA Supply Chain Conference was designed by retailer and manufacturer supply chain executives for senior supply chain executives and has become a can’t-miss Industry event.  Through its rich content and networking opportunities, attendees have the opportunity to discuss effective collaboration and decision-making while learning about model practices that are designed to save companies time and money.

“We are delighted to work with the TPA and start a discussion on how collaboration is changing,” said Guyot. “RSi is supporting over 1,000 retailer-manufacturer relationships and has identified a set best practices that tend to predict successful outcomes very effectively.  We believe that collaboration should be a cornerstone of our industry: it has to stop being viewed as a series of projects and truly become business as usual.”

RSi executives will be on-hand at booth number twenty five at the conference to share how collaboration and data sharing have transformed the retailer/supplier relationship, and how a collaborative approach to operational excellence drives better on-shelf availability, reduced out-of-stocks, improved customer satisfaction and increased sales.
