EnsembleIQ Launches 'Essentials' Tool for Retail Executives
CHICAGO — Convenience Store News parent company EnsembleIQ launched part one in its new series of curated reports on the topic of innovation.
Called Essentials, the innovation-focused series features a collection of carefully selected thought leadership articles, research reports and industry leading insights. The series is meant to serve as an "executive's guidebook" that will enable executives to tackle all things innovation armed with the relevant information they need, according to the company.
"We created Essentials because we know how important innovation is to every company in the markets we serve," said David Shanker, CEO of EnsembleIQ. "We looked at the content our award-winning journalists and market researchers created on the topic of innovation across our portfolio of brands and knew we had to share it broadly with retail leaders."
The first issue of Essentials explores innovation from the perspective of EnsembleIQ’s leading brands, including Convenience Stores News and its sister brands Progressive Grocer, Retail Leader, Store Brands, Shopper Marketing, Apparel, RIS News, Consumer Goods Technology, Hospitality Technology and Path to Purchase Institute.
"Within the pages of Essentials are thought-provoking and forward-looking articles on market-moving trends and consumer insights and exclusive reporting on the people, companies and technologies driving change in the retail and consumer goods industry," said Mike Troy, editor-in-chief, Retail Leader. "All of the editors at EnsembleIQ recognize disruption is accelerating the pace of change and requiring relentless innovation across the industry."
