As a consumer products business, you need to have insights into those changing trends rapidly, as you want to align every aspect of your operations to the shifting needs of your customers. Anticipating demand for innovate products becomes crucial.

Ultimately you can then put out the right promotions to the right people at the right time, across the various channels, and achieve optimized business outcomes plus happy shoppers.
