[Image 1:×648.jpg] *From our website [Service Background] RDS Market Data was transferred to Merchandising On Co., Ltd. from the Distribution System Development Center, a general incorporated foundation, in 2018. Although RDS, which started in 1988, was the oldest data in the market data industry, at the time of its acquisition, the number of companies was approximately 90 and the number of stores was approximately 350, which was a small sample compared to other market data. . In the first place, market data was often an expensive service and was mainly used by major manufacturers. I believe that for the development and revitalization of the distribution industry, reasonable data that anyone can use freely is absolutely necessary, regardless of company size, and that the Japanese distribution industry needs useful data that can better grasp the actual situation. After taking over Merchandising On, we continued to reach out to retailers across the country, and with the support of many retailers, we were able to expand to 268 companies and 6,501 stores as of March 2024. [What is RDS] Abbreviation for Distribution POS Data Service. The service was started in 1988 by the Distribution System Development Center, a general incorporated foundation, and Merchandising On Co., Ltd. took over the business in 2018 and continues to provide the service. [Characteristic service] ■ No restrictions on viewing/output of food and daily necessities. Example: Track record for all foods, including in-store products for fresh foods and delicatessen items, can be grasped by category, giving a more accurate overview of all foods. Trends can be detected.

[Future initiatives] ■ Expansion of services Currently, we are continuing to expand data by asking retailers across the country. ■Providing special benefits to users With the expansion of the sample, we would like more people involved in distribution to use the service, and from May onward, new subscribers will receive a monthly discount of 10% off to users who apply by October 2024. We are running a campaign to keep the current usage fee of 68,000 yen instead of 10,000 yen. [Company Profile] About Merchandising On Co., Ltd.
