 Seminar Discusses Benefits of Leveraging Data to Help Your Business
Over 30 CHHMA and COPA members attended a seminar sponsored by Askuity on February 21, 2018 at the Centre for Health & Safety Innovation in Mississauga which covered the topic of Leveraging Data and how it can be utilized to better strengthen your relationship with customers and grow your sales.

Victor Coscarella, Eric Green and Kate Ragotte from Askuity (a retail sales enablement platform that collects, cleanses and analyzes POS, inventory, ship-to data etc.) gave an excellent presentation on the type of data analysis & reporting that their company can provide brand owners and the benefits it offers to vendors.

During the second part of the data information session, Bob Smith, an analyst who has been working with COPA for a number of years, discussed the industry sales data on hardware/housewares products (based on HS tariff codes) that the CHHMA is looking to make available to our members (an added value benefit of membership) in the near future.
