Who We Are

For over 20 years, SPINS has been a leader in recognizing the transformative power of data in retail. We offer our clients cutting-edge tools to attract attention from a fast-growing segment within the Health & Wellness industry, the values-based consumer. Nearly half of shoppers prioritize products that emphasize wellness, social responsibility, and sustainable practices. SPINS retail consumer insights, analytics, and consulting services give our clients a competitive advantage to increase their share of this growing market. Our data is the most comprehensive and accurate in the industry, allowing clients to power AI models and machine learning algorithms that help them better understand and meet their customers' needs. At SPINS, behind all of our impressive data is our real differentiator, our people. We pride ourselves on our collaborative, flexible, and communicative culture that puts people at the center of everything we do.

Best Practice Client Insights Senior Analyst

The Best Practice team falls under the umbrella of our professional services organization, CGS. Their insights work touches every category, from pet food to vitamins to coffee. There comes a time for every brand when they must buy data. Many companies do not have in-house expertise or the capacity to analyze their own data. Our brand clients then have a choice to make: to buy data…or buy data AND advice! Brands can think of the Best Practice team as a therapist for their business!

We are a collaborative team. You own your own clients, but if you ever have an issue, there's always someone to help. If you want to be the only superstar and shine in the spotlight all the time, this is not the right role for you. We aren't competitive with each other at all; we help each other. Collectively is how we succeed.
