ST. LOUIS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Perficient Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology and management consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it has joined the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) as an associate member.
“In an always-on world, 'connected consumers' are leveraging greater access to information not just to understand what’s good for them, what’s the best price and where to find the products they want, but also to determine how brands are viewed and even what products should be brought to market”
In existence for over 100 years, the GMA is considered among the leading associations representing the interests of the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry. Providing guidance and thought leadership on subjects ranging from supply chain management, to manufacturing and sustainability, to marketing in a digital age, the GMA also offers numerous opportunities for its members and associate members to regularly meet, discuss and harmonize their businesses in the service of the consumer.
As an industry solutions provider with associate membership, Perficient will have the opportunity to share its expertise and insights with CPG leaders and decision makers at a wide range of targeted events and conferences, including the 2014 GMA Leadership Forum held Aug. 22-24 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Perficient will join top CPG companies as they engage in solutions-driven dialogue around the most pressing issues facing the industry.
“In an always-on world, 'connected consumers' are leveraging greater access to information not just to understand what’s good for them, what’s the best price and where to find the products they want, but also to determine how brands are viewed and even what products should be brought to market,” said Michael Forhez, director of Perficient’s Consumer Markets practice. “Simultaneously, these consumers expect stellar experiences while interacting with the brands they know and trust. To keep pace with these 'always-on' consumers, enterprises must transform unprecedented data complexity into operational simplicity while generating the rich insights and service responses that delight even the most demanding consumers.”
“As a premier management and technology consulting firm, through its Consumer Markets practice and with a seat on the Associate Member Council, Perficient is well positioned to support the GMA’s members with perspectives and solutions designed to address pressing industry and enterprise-related challenges, including those dealing with business intelligence and process management, customer and consumer experience, enterprise performance management, Big Data, digital marketing and the connected consumer,” said David Hastoglis, Perficient vice president of industry verticals.
