Pinnacle Brings Additional Tobacco Rebate Incentives Within Retailers’ Reach

Arlington, Texas – March 24, 2015 – The Pinnacle Corporation announces the release of automated scan data exports from its EPM™ Business Intelligence platform that qualify retailers for additional rebate incentives from Altria Group.

Beginning from the 2015 Q1 reporting period, and for the remainder of this year, Altria is providing additional incentives to retailers that are able to deliver advanced levels of sales transaction data.  Recognizing the value these incentives would provide to its clients, Pinnacle quickly responded by adding the new capability, enabling their customers to begin reaping the benefits of the program right away.  Pinnacle’s swift response further underscores its commitment to its clients, and delivers on their promise of getting their customers the most out of their data.

“Over the past few years, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in our clients’ ability to use data as a competitive advantage.  It only makes sense that suppliers would like to take advantage of the information that our Business Intelligence platform delivers as well. We always enjoy engaging in projects with our clients that help them make better business decisions, and improve profitability.“ said Jane Sinn Gabriel, Product Manager at Pinnacle.

“Pinnacle really stepped up and got this project done for us in a very short timeframe. We are pleased that things have gone so smoothly, and are excited to start receiving the benefits of participating in the Altria program”, said Butch Egan, Chief Marketing Officer, Western Oil, Inc.

“I appreciate Pinnacle’s efforts to complete an automated Altria scan export for customers that do not employ a fully-staffed IT department”, said William Baine, CEO, Git’n Go Markets.
