The Promotion Optimization Institute has already launched its critical industry report: „Vendor Panorama for Retail Sales Execution and Monitoring in Consumer Goods” (edition 2022). We are proud to announce that we have once again been ranked very high by POI both in the company and product assessment. We also received multiple “POI Best-in-Class” distinctions for our innovative FMCG solutions.

POI Vendor Panorama regularly presents the most significant retail sales execution technology providers for FMCG companies - you can find the evaluation of a dozen vendors in this year’s report. The document also shows the hottest industry trends and their implications for the solution marketplace.
