Keeping up fresh inventory and responding to increasing customer demands are challenging retailers every day. Our new AI-based solution increases cost-efficiency, decreases labour costs and provides means to create data driven decisions to optimize product portfolio and placement.
When a consumer is selecting where to shop, the high quality fresh food sector is one of the most important criteria. From a store’s perspective this is one of the most challenging areas to manage. The store needs to balance between how wide a category it wishes to provide the customer and the freshness of the available products. Until now, managing the on-shelf availability of fresh products has been handled with labour intensive process or with insufficient data.
“Traditional customer count, wastage and POS reports do not provide adequately precise and real-time shelf inventory of the products available to meet modern business needs. In addition, as digital and traditional stores merge, new needs have arisen for providing information to consumers, stakeholders and staff,” sums up Sami Sivonen, Lead Business Developer, Tieto Data Driven Businesses.
