Why Soylent Ditched Another Data Provider for Byzzer by NIQ

“NielsenIQ has more of a customizable package to our particular needs, and it was very cost effective. The tool was just more beneficial and fit our needs better.”

Chris Brann, ​Director of Retail at Soylent

What do you do with subpar data?​

How can you act quickly to grow and maintain shelf space?
