Our team  generates and maintains the industry’s most accurate quantitative promotional trend data for over 300 brands.  Our data scientists, natural language processing python developers, email systems experts,  software engineers focus on creating the most robust insights in how brands are communicating with customers and leads.   Random Walk’s focus is not telling our institutional investors how to do invest, but instead providing them with very clear quantitative measurable data visualizations.  Specifically, we deliver a promotional ensemble that provides a picture of potential trend changes and inflections.  The easiest method management teams have to react to poor demand is to ramp email activities and our systems alert investors before the market to these changes
