Assess on-shelf availability and placement, perform competitive comparisons, and analyze trends through highly efficient and accurate image recognition software that can be used standalone or alongside your existing SFA solution.
Digital Merchandising gives Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies the power to turn images, into insight, into action. In POI’s 2019 Vendor Panorama for Retail Execution and Monitoring in Consumer Goods, it was reported that cost and speed are key issues in a retail execution solution; 69.4% of these companies did not integrate image recognition as a capability within their retail execution solution.
Retail digital transformation starts at the shelf so it is vital that CPG manufacturers integrate image recognition into their retail execution strategy in order to deliver outstanding results. A field team’s time is precious; they have a substantial number of stores to visit within a day with many merchandising tasks to perform which can lead to human error and inefficiency of data collected.
Poor retail execution is a key factor to why CPG companies are failing. Image Recognition can help improve poor retail execution which in turn can a positive effect on revenue and profitability. Image recognition can give you the power to optimize your sales team performance, have access to quality information as well as being able to achieve more perfect stores.
