“SupplyTrack is developed and tailored to how we want to see the market. Data drives insights, insights drive opportunities, and opportunities drive strategies. It is about materializing some of these numbers that we did not have visibility on.”
"NPD's SupplyTrack offers the complete view of what’s going on either at a national or regional level."
"NPD’s Checkout analysis was helpful to understand how our customers were using a category of products at Limited Service Restaurants and at Jack in the Box. As a result of the analysis, we identified an important area of opportunity for our teams to focus on, in order to grow visits to Jack in the Box. "
