PlumSlice Labs Momentum Continues as CEO Abnesh Raina Named a 2018 Pro to Know and Max Bruni Promoted to SVP of Solutions

Significant product innovation and business growth lead to recognition of multiple members of PlumSlice’s executive team

MIAMI – Feb. 23, 2018 – PlumSlice Labs, a pioneer and leader in cloud-based, collaborative product content management solutions, announced today that Founder and CEO Abnesh Raina was named a 2018 Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive and that Max Bruni was promoted to SVP of Solutions. Selected from among more than 300 entries, the Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ or customers’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. Bruni’s promotion comes as a direct result of his success and expertise in designing, developing and installing merchandising, inventory management, forecasting and replenishments systems for more than two decades.

As CEO of PlumSlice, Raina has led the creation of next-gen product content management solutions that help retailers increase the efficiency and value of their digital channels as workflows and processes continue to become significantly more complex. Before creating PlumSlice Labs, Raina realized that most existing back-end solutions for planning, buying and selling in a digital-first world were built for the brick and mortar ecosystem. Often, these legacy systems either underperform, are too expensive to deploy or are too difficult to manage. Since founding PlumSlice Labs in 2014, Raina has been instrumental in making enterprise-grade automated product workflows available to all retailers, allowing them to plan, buy and sell smarter and faster, at less cost.

“We commend this year’s recipients for their achievements in supply chain and for paving the way for the next generation of exceptional supply chain leaders,” said John Yuva, editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This year’s recipients embody the commitment to transformative supply chain tools and processes, earning these individuals a rightful place in this year’s Pros to Know listing.”

Due to the hyper-growth of digital commerce, and the impact of disruptors like Amazon, every step of the product content supply chain – including images, videos, pricing optimization, and product descriptions – has become more specialized. Raina is a leader in creating systems that automate and simplify each step to ensure product integrity and accuracy. Ultimately, this streamlined product supply chain creates real business value and an enhanced experience for the consumer.

Additionally, to continue delivering significant value to customers pursuing unified commerce, PlumSlice has promoted Max Bruni to SVP of solutions. Bruni’s reputation and success in providing reliable product integrity across the supply chain is founded on a career working with leading retailers such as Crate and Barrel, Walgreens, Whole Foods, PetsMart and Napa Auto Parts.

“Today’s complex omnichannel commerce environment is forcing retailers and brands to be more aggressive about rolling out more products across multiple owned and third-party channels,” said Raina. “Yet the requirements of an omnichannel environment, including in-store, e-commerce and marketplace platforms like Amazon, have changed. And with that, the fundamental requirements to ensure each product enters the right channel at the right time, with the right information, are increasingly complex. At PlumSlice, our leadership team is dedicated to providing brands and retailers with solutions that not only automate how they manage these increasingly complex workflows but ensure data accuracy for every product across every channel. The addition of Max to our senior leadership team will help propel our customers to quickly achieving their goals.”
