Insight Community

In 2019, the world is producing more data every hour than it did annually 2 years ago. While this abundance of information can empower retailers to adapt and prosper, separating the signal from the noise has become increasingly difficult.

This community aims to bring together professionals from across retail functions, who are tasked with interpreting information and using it strategically. We will be sharing market summaries, best practice and innovations from across the UK retail industry.

If you are a retailer, you can benchmark your UK sales performance on a weekly basis in 20 product categories by participating in the BRC-KPMG Retail Sales Monitor (RSM) weekly scheme, which collects over half of all UK retail sales. Contact or view your benchmark here.
