TORONTO, CANADA (October 9, 2015) — ToolBox Solutions, a market leader in providing category management and customer analytics, announced today that they will be joining forces with Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA).
CHFA has selected ToolBox’s 1screen reporting platform, which will improve business performance and build upon best-in-practice category management processes in collaboration with their partners. The solution allows CHFA and its partners to leverage multiple data streams through one centralized source with a simple and intuitive interface, 1screen. All users will now be empowered with a tool to easily gather the insights they need and translate them into positive category and store growth.
“The Canadian Health Food Association is committed to providing our business partners a best-in-class collaboration solution,” said Helen Long, president of CHFA. “Key to achieving this goal is focusing on what matters most to our channel, and making sure that our members have access to the most accurate data on the market. 1screen’s fact-based transparency will enable better decision-making when it comes to building categories and serving the needs of our customers.”
1screen has proven to increase the level of collaboration between vendors and retailers and has revolutionized the way they do business together as a joint partnership. “CHFA Market Insights reports have been designed to support views that the vendor community requested.” Long added. “The reporting and insights will help improve distribution, assortment decisions, execution, pricing, as well as identifying other opportunities that will make our collective goals more achievable. After a comprehensive assessment of solutions in the market, it was clear to us that ToolBox’s 1screen was by far the best fit for our needs.”
“We are delighted to welcome CHFA into the ToolBox family through this very exciting and unique initiative,” said Mark Shepherd, Co-Partner at ToolBox Solutions. “I have no doubt that 1screen will drive benefit to CHFA members and their vendor partners and, most importantly, their customers. It’s a win-win solution for all.”
This joint initiative between ToolBox Solutions and CHFA is one of the first of its kind in the natural health and organic products channel that will drive the best partner insight program in the industry.
