  Galleria Sees Success at This Year’s Category Management Conference with New
  Vendor Desktop Offer

Business Wire

CHICAGO -- October 9, 2013

The Annual Category Management Conference in San Antonio, Texas attracts
attendance from consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturing and retailing
industries around the world.

With a host of vendor interaction available, the event aims to provide a
thought provoking experience, offering its members a greater understanding on
such topics as shopping behaviors, pricing and promotional strategies.

Leading retailer and vendor category management expert, Galleria, attended the
conference to showcase its suite of retail and category optimization
solutions, placing focus on the launch of Galleria’s new vendor focused
Behavioral Cluster Planning & Strategic Assortment desktop package.

Behavioral Cluster Planner (BCP) utilizes a truly bottom-up approach to
provide vendors and retailers with key insight into consumer purchasing habits
at a category level in order to automatically and efficiently generate
accurate consumer groups. With Google Earth integration and the ability to
overlay demographic information, retailers and vendors are able to build a
true understanding of store shopper behavior. With optimal clusters created to
breed consumer loyalty, this provides retailers and vendors with a laser focus
to drive targeted assortment strategies via Galleria’s Strategic Assortment
(SA) solution. The solution provides a scientific approach to give users the
ability to efficiently generate consumer-centric assortments which remain
fully space aware, in-line with category strategy/business objectives and
contain the optimal balance, breadth and depth of products to meet demand.

Offering a flexible deployment approach, Galleria is able to ensure that its
solutions are available to vendors and retailers on any scale. As such, it has
recently released both BCP and SA as a combined desktop solution to offer key
value and proven benefits to vendors and retailers of all sizes and across
category. The solution can be installed and trained ready to go in just a
couple of weeks, without having to embark upon a larger IT project. With
proven results seen with Galleria clients, when applied together, BCP and SA
have the potential to lift sales by double figures and provide a fast ROI.
