Center for Shared Business Intelligence

Acosta’s industry-leading Business Intelligence (BI) division is the nerve center and catalyst behind the company’s data-driven strategies and optimization efforts. Staffed with multidisciplined experts, our BI teams work one-on-one with consumer goods manufacturers and retailers to generate insights that make a measurable difference.


Retail Analytics

Acosta taps into a wealth of data resources, as well as its own shopper community, to glean localized insights specific to consumer audiences, brand category, channel and more. Through additional research, advanced predictive modeling and in-depth analysis, the company can clearly identify sales, distribution and share-growth opportunities for clients.  

Strategic Planning

Incorporating data-driven insights into thoughtfully designed phases of execution, Acosta’s strategic advisors collaborate with clients to proactively drive national priorities as well as manage local execution — aligning client and retailer strategies to maximize outcomes.  


Leveraging innovative technologies, Acosta analyzes ongoing activities to identify paths to improving category or space management, reducing out-of-stocks, ensuring ideal placement and optimizing every inch of in-store space. 

Equally important, clients gain visibility into the value of Acosta’s data-driven efforts through a web-based dashboard. Fully automated with point-and-click capabilities, the dashboard includes valuable insights such as sales decomposition, account rankings, product velocity and distribution analysis.
