"We believe that we have a significant role in driving a better execution at retail in partnership with our customers," said Gregg Malatesta, director, sales, planning and innovation, Welch's, in a statement. "Downstream data gives us the opportunity to really understand on which stores, which items and which events we should focus."

Welch's will start its project at Meijer [2] and Target [3], focusing on monitoring new product introductions, improving the planning and execution of its promotions, and reducing exit inventories at the end of events. Retail Solutions' system is offered via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model.
