CHICAGO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 13, 2012 — Connecting large and often complex multi-tier supply chains with consumers’ cross-channel needs and an ever-expanding shelf is a top challenge for retailers, consumer goods manufacturers, and other suppliers in today’s dynamic market.
To advise companies on how to best approach this opportunity, Agentrics, a global leader in supply chain synchronization, today announced it will be hosting a webinar in conjunction with the Aberdeen Group on Wednesday, June 27th at 1 PM EST/12 PM CST/11 AM MST/10 AM PST.
The session, entitled “B2B Collaboration and Visibility in Retail and CPG”, will demonstrate how retailers and their suppliers can find a greater balance between expansive channel needs and reduced inventory carrying costs, and develop shared responsibility for inventory visibility and replenishment across product categories.
“Hyper-connected supply chain strategies are the new focus driving retailers, CPG, and supplier communities to create an integrated network of partners. The objective is to combine real-time data sharing, portal-based collaborative rapid replenishment, and shelf-level inventory optimization,” said Sahir Anand, vice president and principal analyst, Aberdeen Group.
The webinar will showcase numerous strategies and best practices, including:
- Benchmarks and case studies from best-in-class

Achieving situational awareness at the shelf level is key to monetizing demand trends,” said Kurt Johnson, vice president of North America, Agentrics NeoGrid. “Combined with the intense, ‘do more with the same or less’ pressure on budgets today, retailer-supplier cooperation and collaboration is positioned like never before to deliver timely, significant bottom line results."
