Hear what Bill Senn had to say as he steps into his new role:
Welcome to Intrics, Bill! What are you most excited about in the year ahead for the retail industry?
Bill: Retailers across North America are facing unprecedented pressures, such as providing their customers with the best price. Only Intrics, using information sourced by RetailData, can provide the insights and KPI metrics for retailers to stay on the cutting edge. I am most excited to share the exceptional tools Intrics will bring to the industry to support their tactical and strategic decisions in 2024.
As omni-channel complexity grows, there is no shortage of questions to be answered and data to be collected. What are some of the fundamentals that retail professionals should be thinking about?
Bill: The list is long, but there are core knowledge-points you must bring to the table to be at the tip of the spear: for one, every retail pricing manager has to ask, “am I going to be a leader or a follower in price strategy?” In other words, is their leadership team investing in pricing to have strong enough margin room to really combat retail competitors’ micro and macro pricing fluctuations? Either way, as leader or follower on pricing, trusting your data is tantamount to succeeding at any level, and that means 100% of the time knowing that the information shared by your data provider is rock solid and quality assured, including analysis against Pricing, Placement, Product selection and Promotion cycles.
What will you be focused on in your role as VP of Partnerships?
Bill: First and foremost, I’ll be fulfilling the role of offering true, meaningful partnerships in retail excellence, unlike any other data, insights and strategy provider. Our team’s experience of what retailers actually need is unmatched in our field. We’ve lived the roles, not just read about them: we’ve been buyers at the top of the Fortune 10 retailers, so we know the everyday grind of being up to speed on competitors’ pricing and strategies. Only Intrics offers the depth of insights and metrics that we do, and my role is to ensure that we’re supporting our retail partners by operating side-by-side with them every day, at the level needed across the omnichannel platforms.
