COLLABORATION FOR OPTIMIZED RETAIL EXCELLENCE PROGRAM

RSi and Walgreens have been partners in the Operational Data Sharing Program since 2007; now with over 500 participating suppliers. Walgreens launched this program to provide its suppliers access to near real-time store level inventory, point-of-sale (POS) data at the store/item level, as well as category data. This granularity provides suppliers with greater visibility into consumer demand, enabling increased collaboration with Walgreens to achieve business goals and provide customers with the highest service levels.

Retail Solutions is THE data provider for Walgreens Suppliers. We automate data integration, attribution and reports, cleanse and validate the data, and then help suppliers focus on activities that will drive the most value. RSi and Walgreens continue to collaborate on a daily basis to identify and implement new data elements to grow and elevate the program’s success.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Walgreens encourages suppliers to explore this program and participate. Subscription and activation take only a few weeks, and do not require lengthy IT projects. The POS and store-level inventory data are made available through Retail Data Management solution that provides a robust data warehouse and easy-to-use tools for suppliers to access and analyze the data by product, by day and by store. Supplier data is cleansed and validated so that the data format is standardized and raw POS data is transformed into actionable information for your business process.

Suppliers have access to both training and expert consultants to help interpret the data and leverage reports for optimal results.
