“Track8 - Buying Better, Together.”
2014 has seen a substantial increase in the number of organisations initiating projects
to strengthen their category management performance through the use of better processes
and dedicated category management technology.
To meet this demand, we will be launching a new website devoted to Track8, our online
category management tool. This will focus on how Track8 can help leading teams meet
practical challenges such as improving internal collaboration and creating incisive
category strategies. The site will also include a video introduction and the invitation
to request a demo. Launch date to be confirmed next month!

data available ensuring the results we will then share with you are the most relevant
and complete as possible. When the survey closes next week one lucky participant
will be chosen at random to
