Our story

We understand that the current retail landscape is tough

When our founders began working in FMCG, they were tired of the constant struggle they had to get accurate visibility of data to inform pricing and investment decisions. Through founding Acumen in 2006, they decided to help commercial teams by providing the tools and processes to fix these issues, enabling businesses to make better decisions and drive lasting change.


Our purpose:


We deliver lasting change through smart revenue management for consumer brands
