CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - June 6, 2008) - Relational Solutions, a software and service company specializing in POS data integration and analytics for consumer goods companies, announces the selection of POSmart by Comag Marketing Group.

Relational Solutions' flagship product, POSmart, is the leading multi-retailer solution that automates the integration and harmonization of POS data with internal data. POSmart allows analysis of promotions, customer demographics, store clusters, sales trending, profit and more.

Stephanie Justice, Senior VP of Comag Marketing Group, said, "CMG selected POSmart as our Demand Signal Repository because of Relational Solutions' unique ability to streamline the data gathering and cleansing process and give us a way to manage external data more efficiently and effectively. POSmart has the ability to integrate all of our point of sale data from all classes of trade including drug, mass, warehouse clubs and chain bookstores. We now have the ability to compare point of sale data with our internal information, identify anomalies and other exceptions which provides key information in managing our overall sales growth. POSmart had the most flexible architecture and our key business users like the ease of use. RSI personnel were easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable. We are excited about the POSmart product and look forward to its future role in our technology portfolio."
