Accelerated Analytics was pleased to be a repeat-sponsor of the Home Improvement Research Institute (HIRI) event on September 18 and 19. The 2018 Insights Conference hosted many DIY, home and hardware vendors and retailers to discuss key economic indicators, trends and forecasts for this division of the retail industry. Topics included global economic impacts on the home improvement market, trends in remodeling and home building, and the evolving healthy home range of products coming to market. The conference was held at the historic McDonald’s Hamburger University in Oak Brook, IL. Accelerated Analytics was the only POS analytics reporting solution provider at the event, and welcomed many current and newly-signed DIY vendor customers. Many attended a dinner hosted by Accelerated Analytics CEO, Chad Symens, and Director of Sales and Marketing, Jennifer Freyer, at Wildfire in Oak Brooke.
