We're changing behavior in the retail industry by providing a platform for suppliers to view and analyze their retail point of sale scan data quickly and efficiently. Our goal is to move suppliers away from vacating responsibility over their products once they leave the warehouse toward more proactive engagement with their products until they reach the end consumer. from the founders

Graduating from Cambridge with a degree in Biological Anthropology, life took the first of many twists, and John spent the next six years with The Dow Chemical Company. After completing an MBA at IMD in Switzerland, the next twist landed him at Coca-Cola Amatil in Sydney, Australia, where he spent four years as Head of Commercial Planning. In 2000, he joined the Sydney based News Corporation- Softbank vehicle, “e-Ventures”, as Chief Operating Officer. John then took on the role of Managing Director at a privately owned accessories wholesale business, where he remained for 12 years. It was during this time that he and his business partner first conceived the concept of utilizing Point of Sale data to drive incremental growth in a wholesale business, and the krunchbox model was born. John is passionate about data visualization and collaboration. When he is not krunching data, John has an alter ego as a professional musician, and has been a Board Member of a number of prominent Australian Arts companies.
