CHICAGO – Nielsen IQ (NIQ) announced Thurday the launch of its Connected Collaboration platform, powered by Rite Aid data assets and NIQ’s leading data science and software. This will empower suppliers and retailers to quickly diagnose what drives business performance at Rite Aid through an intuitive user interface that allows non-technical users to leverage built-in analytics, AI, and data science. The comprehensive platform provides retailers and manufacturers with one version of the truth across use cases, from market insights to supply chains to customer/loyalty insights, all in one place at Rite Aid.

NIQ has already gone further with this platform, in a big step-change in collaboration platforms, connecting the insights to true activation opportunities. Integrating the capability for retail and supplier users will create, manage, and measure personalized offers, digital coupons, and retail media directly in the platform while being powered by the same insights to ensure customer relevancy to these marketing levers.

With the launch, Rite Aid expands its exclusive supplier collaboration partnership with NIQ to ensure Rite Aid customers are at the center of key decisions and joint business plans with Rite Aid supplier partners.  Rite Aid is democratizing access to data and insights across its business and ensuring its teams are armed with the latest technology in a competitive time at retail when customers have more choices than ever.
