"Revionics has always specialized in scientifically analyzing consumer shopping patterns and price sensitivity in the determination of everyday, promotional and markdown pricing," said Todd P. Michaud, Revionics President and CEO, who added "The very same demand intelligence data that we are analyzing for our clients is an essential part of planning and optimizing store-level workforce requirements for enhanced productivity and increased efficiency."

"Revionics and Tomax each have leadership positions especially in the grocery industry," said Eric Olafson, CEO for Tomax. "We are very excited about our planned offering with Revionics, and are excited about the opportunity to work together on advanced solutions for the grocery channel."
