First Insight to Launch Expanded Pricing and Marketing Solutions at NRF 2013

First Insight, the world’s leading solution provider empowering retailers and manufacturers to introduce the right new products at the right price, will launch a major platform expansion at the National Retail Federation's (NRF's) 102nd Annual Convention and EXPO. The BIG Show takes place January 13 through 16, 2013 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. First Insight will be exhibiting in booth #262.

First Insight’s new comprehensive platform is equipped with a suite of offerings, all of which are designed to give retailers and manufacturers greater visibility into product performance before products are launched.

“Retailers and manufacturers have endless amounts of intelligence on product performance after products hit the stores. They know exactly which customers are buying which products, where those customers are, and what offers they respond to,” said Greg Petro, CEO of First Insight. “First Insight now gives companies this same level of intelligence before the products are launched. We’ve moved the product/customer data frontier further back in the development and buy cycle, essentially offering a system of record for tomorrow’s products - today.”

At NRF 2013, First Insight will introduce this new platform along with three major new platform components:

  • Insight Pricing. First Insight is the first company in the world to generate a price response (or elasticity) curve prior to a product being introduced. Insight Pricing enables companies to accurately set entry price points using a predictive model which identifies the market’s response to alternative pricing decisions. First Insight’s solution is driving margin gains for its customers by showing them which products – known as MarginMovers - can bear a higher price point than originally planned. Insight Pricing also provides an accurate forecast of a new product’s Average Unit Retail (AUR) price prior to product introduction.
  • Insight Marketing. First Insight’s solution now enables retail marketers to understand the optimal customer profile for a new product, well before that product hits the stores. Retailers using Insight Marketing are able to target specific customer groups with tailored messaging for these new products, dramatically increasing new product sell-through and margins.
  • Insight Selection. First Insight’s core new product ranking and recommendation offering features a re-designed user experience, making it easier for merchants and planners to view product performance results and make decisions.

First Insight is a Silver Sponsor of the BIG Show, and is also sponsoring the Virtual Golf Challenge, next to First Insight’s booth #262. Top prize is $40,000.

First Insight invites retailers, manufacturers, media, analysts, and other attendees to visit them at the EXPO and pre-schedule a meeting in the company’s conference room within booth #262. Please contact Brady Dolan at [email protected] or 724-759-7141.
